Flood Victims In Louisiana Beg Obama To Visit Flood Ravaged Area – This Is His SICK Response…

How is Obama responding to a flood that has killed a dozen people and ruined the lives of Baton Rouge residents?

Well, not by responding for their cries for help, that’s for sure. In fact, he’s going back to doing what he does best: nothing.

A dozen people have lost their lives in the awful flooding that has taken place in Baton Rouge.

There has been some growing frustration about how President Obama has been a total no show.

Especially considering the fact that George W. Bush was crucified for his Katrina response.

This isn’t just the national media making things up.

People in Baton Rouge are begging the President to cut his vacation short.

Here is an excerpt from a great editorial from a newspaper in the affected area.

From The Advocate:

Sometimes, presidential visits can get in the way of emergency response, doing more harm than good. But we don’t see that as a factor now that flood waters are subsiding, even if at an agonizing pace. It’s past time for the president to pay a personal visit, showing his solidarity with suffering Americans.

And if the president can interrupt his vacation for a swanky fundraiser for fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton, as he did on Monday, then surely he can make time to show up for a catastrophe that’s displaced thousands.

The optics of Obama golfing while Louisiana residents languished in flood waters was striking. It evoked the precedent of the passive federal response to the state’s agony in 2005, a chapter of history no one should ever repeat.

The president acted prudently in officially declaring a disaster for the flooded part of the state, a key step in advancing federal aid. We’ve been heartened so far by the active involvement of Craig Fugate, head of Federal Emergency Management Agency, a far cry from FEMA’s hapless Michael Brown in the days after hurricanes Katrina and Rita. U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was slated to visit Louisiana today to assess the damage.

But a disaster this big begs for the personal presence of the president at ground zero. In coming here, the president can decisively demonstrate that Louisiana’s recovery is a priority for his administration – and the United States of America.

Isn’t this the same President who slammed Bush for a “slow response” after Hurricane Katrina?

I’ll just be over here sipping my tea.
