DHS Secretary Excuses Obama’s Absence in Louisiana: He Can’t Be Everywhere (VIDEO)

It has been truly amazing to watch liberals in politics and media try to explain away Obama’s inaction during the Louisiana floods after making George W. Bush look like a heartless monster during Katrina.

The latest ridiculous defense of Obama comes from DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Jeh Johnson Tells Flooded La., ‘The President Can’t Be Everywhere’; ‘He Has a Very Busy Schedule’

Speaking at a news conference in flood-ravaged Louisiana on Thursday, Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson said “the federal government is here, we have been here, and we’ll be here as long as it takes to help this community recover.”

Responding to criticism that President Obama has not interrupted his summer vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, Johnson said several times, “The president can’t be everywhere.”

Johnson also said the (golfing, vacationing) president “has a very busy schedule this fall and in the coming days,” hinting that Obama has no plans to go Louisiana.

“There’s been a lot of criticism about president Obama not visiting Louisiana. Will you be recommending that he come to Louisiana and visit?” a reporter asked Johnson.

“Well, of course the president can’t be everywhere. I can tell you that the president has been closely monitoring the situation here in Louisiana. He made the federal (disaster) declaration in a matter of hours — it was expedited, we’re up to 20 parishes now.

The truth is he can’t be everywhere because he’s golfing on Martha’s Vineyard.
