That’s not exactly a picture of confidence, huh?

Feel safe yet?
The AFP reported, via Free Republic:

US President Barack Obama on Saturday personally led his government’s response to Hurricane Irene, marshalling top officials and visiting a disaster command center as the storm roared ashore.

Obama greeted officials at the National Response Coordination Center (NRCC) set up at the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) headquarters in Washington, and then held a video conference with federal and state officials.

“You guys are doing a great job obviously,” Obama told a group in the command center. “This is obviously going to be a touch and go.”

Officials said the NRCC brings together multiple government agencies and departments to coordinate disaster response with federal, state and local groups around the clock.
