A carefully orchestrated photo op.

How bout that picture of Trump passing packages that only lasted as long as the camera was there

So, you were there and seen the line only lasted as long as the cameras were there, right

So Barry was finally shamed into going to Louisiana.

Worst, Hilarious called the LA governor and asked about conditions

 

Way to phone it in Hilarious

How is the oblameo golf game doing? Bush was raked over the coals for Katrina. oblameo?? No problem. He will go to Louisiana Tues. hahahah.

The LA governor personally asked Obama not to come to the state as it would create a drain on already overburdened resources. You'd know this if you paid attention to the details instead of jerking off to the right wing demagogues and their dishonest memes.

Donald Trump shamelessly used the Louisiana floods as a photo-op for his failing campaign.

 

He should be ashamed. He tries to exploit every tragedy.

 

 

What happens to left and right wing semantics when ancestors get tired of being nudged to death, cradle to grave playing the damned if you do or damned if you don't play social justification as defined by academic prophessors, economic experts at trading substance for symbolic values, and artistic impressionists selling the notions of borderless global spiritualism and bordered national pride..

What is it with you and this constant harping on ANCESTORS and CRADLE TO GRAVE?\

Ancestors are deceased.

You seem to be running out of clichés with which to ornament your obfuscating drivel.

Liar. The governor asked him not to go so it wouldn't hamper the immediate recovery.

But but but

I didn't know Trump was in a position to call the shots on flood assistance. When Bush flew over the Katrina flooding, liberals vilified him. Obama is a total no show, and the reason is, his presence would disrupt progress.

I did not make this up. I got it from Liberal 101.

Looks like the old LDS

Liberal Double Standard.

Let's see......

The governor of Louisiana personally asks the president NOT to come as it would disrupt rescue efforts and strain resources. The President respects the governor's request, and the right wing goes all turd-brained about it. I thought you guys were all about the rights of the state over the rights of the fed? Or is that negotiable for you?

Taking away your reasonable doubt, self evident results cannot be physical absolutes nobody believes possible because everyone adopts a caricature cradle to grave mentally. You are mentally trying to escape being self contained in your own skin by projecting the idea there are infinite possibilities. There aren't.

 

your lifetime is self contained by being alive now and nowhere else possible. simple compounding details never becoming the same details as before, that ends up looking like a linear path where time looks mobile and lifetimes are stationary when in actuality it functions inverse to those concepts that rule logic intellectually as trained academically, projected artistically, acted out politically and spiritually with reward and punishment done economically.

 

Did I cover humanity historically in this brief summary? that soul of wit being brevity. using you as an example for the old saying about, "so goes a man, so goes mankind.".

 

As I said to Eclectic Sceptic today fuck your ideology and all the brains worshiping it for screwing over my ancestry until now. I am a peaceful sole seeking permanent resolution over eternal conflicts of social opinions, nobody has to be harmed repairing what humanity has done so far corrupting the self evident intellectually.

Presidential role[edit]

Early Tuesday morning, August 30, a day after the hurricane struck, President Bush attended a V-J Day commemoration ceremony at Coronado, California, while looking over the situation with his aides and cabinet officials.[17] 24 hours before the ceremony, storm surges began overwhelming levees and floodwalls protecting the city of New Orleans, greatly exacerbating the minimal damage from rainfall and wind when the hurricane itself veered to the East and avoided a direct hit on New Orleans.[18] Initial reports of leaked video footage of top-level briefings held before the storm claimed that this video contradicted Bush’s earlier statements that no one anticipated the breach of the levees.[19] Transcripts revealed that Bush was warned that the levees may overflow, as were Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin.

Bush was criticized for not returning to Washington, D.C. from his vacation in Texas until after Wednesday afternoon, more than a day after the hurricane hit on Monday. On the morning of August 28, the president telephoned Mayor Nagin to "plead" for a mandatory evacuation of New Orleans, and Nagin and Gov. Blanco decided to evacuate the city in response to that request.[citation needed] Blanco told reporters the President had called and spoken with her (but not Nagin) before the press conference.[citation needed]

Bush overflew the devastated area from Air Force One as he traveled from Texas back to Washington, D.C.,[20] and subsequently visited the Gulf Coast on Friday and was briefed on Hurricane Katrina. Turning to his aides during the flyover, Bush remarked, "It's totally wiped out. It's devastating, it's got to be doubly devastating on the ground." Later, in a televised address from the White House, he said, "We're dealing with one of the worst national disasters in our nation's history."[21]

Vice President Dick Cheney was also criticized in his role in the aftermath. On the night of August 30, and again the next morning, he personally called the manager of the Southern Pines Electric Power Association and ordered him to divert power crews to electrical substations in nearby Collins, Mississippi, that were essential to the operation of the Colonial Pipeline, which carries gasoline and diesel fuel from Texas to the Northeast.[22] The power crews were reportedly upset when told what the purpose of the redirection was, since they were in the process of restoring power to two local hospitals, but did so anyway.[23]

10 facts about the Katrina response

By KEVIN ROBILLARD

10/03/12 12:03 PM EDT

1. Within four days of Katrina’s landfall on Monday, Aug. 29, 2005, then-President George W. Bush signed a $10.4 billion aid package and ordered 7,200 National Guard troops to the region. A few days later, he requested — and Congress approved — an additional $51.8 billion in aid.

2. Hundreds of firefighters from other cities who volunteered to help in the response were rerouted to Atlanta, where they sat through two days of presentations on sexual harassment and the history of FEMA before being sent to New Orleans.

 

3. FEMA Director Michael Brown, who resigned over his handling of the response, later told a group of students that the White House only wanted to federalize the response in Louisiana, where the governor was a Democrat, and not in Republican-led Mississippi in order to embarrass Louisiana officials. Brown said the White House believed they had a chance to “rub [Kathleen Blanco’s] nose in it.” The Bush administration denied political considerations played a role in the response.2. Hundreds of firefighters from other cities who volunteered to help in the response were rerouted to Atlanta, where they sat through two days of presentations on sexual harassment and the history of FEMA before being sent to New Orleans.

4. The federal government didn’t waive the Stafford Act, which requires localities to contribute 10 percent of the cost of reconstruction and clean-up projects, until May. It was quickly waived after both Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew.

5. An investigation by Congressional Republicans, while placing most of the blame on the Bush administration, singled out New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin for not ordering an evacuation of the city until less than 24 hours before Katrina’s landfall. Nearby Plaquemines Parish had ordered an evacuation a day earlier.

6. Then-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson offered 200 members of his state’s national guard to help Louisiana the day the Katrina hit, but a letter from Washington authorizing the move didn’t arrive until five days later.

7. On Tuesday, Aug. 30, DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff flew to Atlanta for a briefing on the avian flu, and President George W. Bush later said he thought New Orleans had dodged a bullet. In fact, the White Househad been informed the night before that levees in New Orleans had broken and the city was flooding.

8. Vice President Dick Cheney’s office called a Mississippi electricity cooperative and ordered repair crews to restore power to a pipeline sending oil and gas to the northeast, delaying the restoration of power to two rural hospitals.

9. Before the storm hit, Amtrak ran equipment out of the city. With rooms for several hundred evacuees, they offered the spots to the city. Officials declined, so the train left with no passengers.

10. Five days after the storm hit, then-Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.) was allowed through the military checkpoints and given a national guard escort in order to visit his house. Jefferson said he was on tour of his flooded district and trying to examine the damage.

See what happens to liberals? First he admits he's a hypocrite for attacking Bush over Katrina, then the Louisiana Governor stabs him in the back, saying it was good that Trump came down.
