It Took Obama a Week to Get to Joplin in 2010… It Took Him a Day to Get to New Jersey in 2012 …(A Week Before the Election)

Obama visited Joplin a week after the deadly 2010 tornado. (KC Star)

It took Barack Obama 7 days to visit Joplin, Missouri after a tornado wiped out half of the town and killed 120 people.
It took Barack Obama fourteen days to visit the gulf coast after the BP oil spill.
Obama declined to visit Tennessee after the historic 2010 1000 year floods.
Obama ignored the Texas wildfires when over 400 homes were lost.
And, of course, Obama ignored the calls for help from Benghazi.

But it took Barack Obama only one day to visit the hurricane damage on the east coast.
Then again, there’s an election next week.

    no matter, in a week he can join the ranks of unemployed.

    It’s all about the election, baby!

    Oh but don’t you dare say it’s politics, oh no! Obama would NEVER use a tragedy to play politics.


  • Opus#6@AmericanPerspective

    Obama checked his watch. 6 days until the election? Time to “look” presidential.

    Being aided by Chris Christie.

    Blame lies with the press – MSM is shameful. This man in the White House and his minions are going to face a real day of reckoning.

    Jake Tapper – Anderson Cooper – Bill Plant – Martha Radditz . . . all complicit in perpetuating this crime called BarackHUSSEINObama. Each dares to call him/herself a professional journalist?

    ” . . . How much can they ignore? Was it easy when Lawrence Sinclair was made a political prisoner, held in prison, held with threats of life imprisonment for crimes he never committed, had his benefits taken away, was hounded by Biden’s Delaware Syndicate to silence him, was hounded by Obamaniacs with death threats in being a gay sexual associate of Mr. Obama…….all to cover up Obama’s past? . . .”

    ” . . .For not one reporter to literally snap on a live interview where the message would get out, and to say, “Hey I’m not going to take this anymore, not going to cover up for Obama, because people are being murdered and I just can not absorb this without saying anything”, is a testimony in how absolutely animalistic all of this is from these reporters for Obama.

    None of them are [sic] quitting, but keep collecting that paycheck and keeping silent as that is what is more important to them is their egos on camera and protecting this criminal Obama. . .”

    For the record, he also abandoned Texas and Kentucky. Not to mention, I believe, Iowa…

  • Big Al

    I dont mind Christie looking after his state but did he have to slobber all over Obama quite so much. Something about that slob has always bothered me…and, with all due sympathy to the peope of NJ, I am not prepared to concede this election to Obama just for them. Chrisities words have not been carefully chosen and thats being charitable.

  • Hugh

    Don’t forget when Texas was on fire! Nothing! Obama is politicizing Sandy just by showing up since it is utterly inconsistent with his prior behavior for other disasters.

  • McCloud

    He also blew off the Tennessee-Kentucky-Arkansas region during the massive ice storm of 2009. Over 50 dead, some without power for a month.

  • Tom63010

    New Jersey apparently was Obama’s second choice after Mayor Bloomberg turned Obama down when he asked to come to New York. I think Christie should make a statement to the press that while he is grateful to Obama for his support of New Jersey this in no way reduces his support for Governor Romney.

    Never came to Vermont at all last year when we were devasted by flooding from Irene – 14 towns entirely cut off, some for weeks.

    It really is amazing how fast things get done with an election looming on the horizon, isn’t it?

  • donh

    And Chris Christie deserves a 10 minute KISS ME FAT BOY loop for sucking up to Obama and turning his back on Romney like he never knew Mitt at all…..for 30 billion pieces of FEMA silver….>

  • Bill Brooks

    That Kenyan 0bama is a real wanker, a despicable man who tells gargantuan lies, could use a Pinocchio nose to go along with those large Dumbo ears.

  • MrGoodWench

    How many muslims in Joplin ?
    How many mooching (welfare) parasites in Joplin ?

  • SoLongSong

    That man-child NEVER does anything that is NOT self-serving. EVER.

    how’s that Benghazi investigation coming
    along CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and Fox et al??

    oh wait, they’re still keeping it hush hush, what was i thinking.. :-(

    excellent read..

    Made-Up Pictures From A Made-Up Man

    [Now as the lies from Obama’s own lips ooze like pus from a gangrenous skin lesions we are to forget all else and applaud him for giving a speech and taking a helicopter ride over the storm damaged areas. The most absurd and insulting being his most recent, i.e., that he told Panetta and the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to do whatever it took to extricate Stevens, Smith, Woods and Doherty.

    He, by his own lips is Commander-in-Chief; in street lingo that means “he be da boss.” Are we to believe that Obama gave a direct order as he claims by his own mouth and then his senior-most staff decided, “Screw that we’re gonna let them die”?]

    much more at link..

    ht Blacks/Afro-Americans for Mitt Romney,
    hope this works, if not, please go here.. 😉

    RINO christie: does standing next to this socialist extremist make me look even fatter?
    Yes – and even more fat-headed.

    christie and OBOZO = reviving the Laural and Hardy comedy team.
    …NOTHING is funnier than RINO-socialist slapstick.

  • dwdude

    other than west coast and northeast, it’s all fly over country to obama

  • donh

    One final closing act of corruption to buy the election….. Obama bribing Christie for a BIG public smooch of an endorsement in return for fast and easy FEMA slush funding. They rushed it through before even beginning the damage assessments…and THE DAMAGE IS BEING HYPED. The Jersey shore looks NOTHING like Joplin…..The houses are nearly all still standing. A garage door torn off here, a broken window there, a few fallen trees, some boats lifted into the road…some sand to shovel. Its not as bad as the media is making it out to be, with the exception of the fire in Queens.
