Now that Louisiana is once again dealing with major life-threatening flooding, President Obama is nowhere to be found, preferring to continue his posh vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.
When he was campaigning for president in 2008 however, when Katrina hit, then Senator Obama had nothing but criticism for President Bush for merely flying over to survey the damage.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Flashback: Obama ripped Bush’s ‘unconscionable ineptitude’ during Hurricane Katrina
President Obama, under fire for golfing on posh Martha’s Vineyard during a week of anguished cries for help from flooded Louisiana, ripped former President Bush 11 years ago when the Republican was seen as slow to react to Hurricane Katrina’s crash into New Orleans…
Campaigning for president a few years later, he slammed Bush for flying Air Force One over the floods. “We can talk about what happened for two days in 2005 and we should. We can talk about levees that couldn’t hold, a FEMA that seemed not just incompetent but paralyzed and powerless, about a president who only saw the people from the window of an airplane instead of down here on the ground.”

So, where is Obama now? Golfing.
He’s such a hypocrite.
