Nerobama Fiddled For Five Days While Colorado Burned

June 27, 2012 7:48 pm 1 comment

Do you remember how the Democrat/Media Complex eviscerated George W. Bush for allegedly failing to take a more active role in dealing with the Hurricane Katrina disaster? Never mind that government at the state and local levels — as well as at the federal — should have acted in a more prompt and competent manner to ease the suffering of the storm’s victims, especially in the New Orleans area. The left and its captive media stenographers put all the blame at the feet of then-President Bush.

Contrast that situation with the current one in Colorado. Wildfires of “epic proportions” in the Waldo Canyon area of Colorado Springs have forced 32,000 residents from their homes as 15,324 acres are ablaze with only 5 percent containment. Even more alarming is the fact that the size of the area being incinerated doubled overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday.

What has been the reaction of the White House to the raging wildfires? After attending his 100th fundraiser of the year Monday night in Boston, President Obama was hitting up wealthy Democrat donors at four more events in Florida Tuesday. Only on Wednesday, more than six days after the fires began to ravage Colorado, did the president finally get around to calling Governor John Hickenlooper and Colorado Springs mayor Steve Bach to get briefed on the situation. Obama has now scheduled a visit to the state and directed federal officials to help. By way of contrast, Bush had declared a federal emergency and mobilized federal agencies fully two days before Katrina made landfall. There is, however, much more to the current problem than simply Obama’s five days of apparent indifference. Once again, the left’s green agenda rears its ugly head.

No matter what Bush did to try to ease the pain inflicted by Katrina on New Orleans, the knock on him from the left was that he didn’t show what his critics determined was the proper amount of concern for the hurricane victims. Yet there hasn’t been even a whisper from the corrupt media regarding Obama’s Johnny-come-lately approach to the fires and those who have been displaced and lost their homes in the Colorado Springs area. He has been obsessed lately with raising campaign cash, taking only a little time away from campaign activities to scarf down chili dogs and squeeze in another round of golf between the fundraisers.

If you recall that Obama’s response to the 2011 Texas wildfires that burned more than 2.2. million acres in the Lone Star State was to deny requests for a disaster declaration and federal assistance, then his reaction to the Colorado fires appears to be an improvement. But for more than five full days, the president fiddled while Colorado burned.

  • the truth is Josh that Pres. Barack Hussein Obama cares nothing for anyone but himself. over the last few years since he has become our elected dictator he has shown a lack of caring for anyone.

    I certainly hope that this the last year that we will suffer under the rule of Obama.

    Loyalty and Enmity: Parallels between Islam and the Mafia

    Editor’s note: The following is Part Two of a three-part series examining the many parallels between Islam and the mafia following Bill Maher’s recent exclamation that Islam is “the only religion that acts like the mafia, that will f***ing kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book.” Click here for Part One.

    Death to Traitors (AKA “Apostates”)

    Once a Mafioso takes the oath of loyalty to the mafia—including the Omertà code of silence and secrecy—trying to leave the “family” is instantaneously seen as a betrayal and therefore punishable by death. Any family member, great or small, is given authority to kill the traitor, the “turncoat.”

    ‘LGBT’: The ‘T’ Is For Tyranny

    Tranny tyranny. Strike that. “LGBT” tyranny. Lesbian, gay, bisexual tyranny. That, generally speaking, is what’s on display in Houston right now. But trust me: Unlike Vegas, what happens in Houston will, most definitely, not stay in Houston – not if Democrats continue to have their way.

    Houstonians elected themselves, as mayor, an extremist lesbian Democrat (but I repeat myself). She quickly, and quite naturally, took to doing what extremist lesbian Democrats do. Annise Parker is her name, and spreading political Ebola is her game. That and trampling the U.S. Constitution. As you’ve likely heard, Parker’s office has illegally subpoenaed the sermons and privileged communications of a number of Christian pastors who vocally opposed the city’s ironically branded “Equal Rights Ordinance” (aka, the Houston Bathroom Bill).

    Muhammad and Islam’s Sex Slaves

    Once again, Islamic State Muslims are pointing to Islam in order to justify what the civilized world counts as atrocities.

    According to an October 13 report in the Telegraph,

    Islamic State jihadists have given detailed theological reasons justifying why they have taken thousands of women from the Iraqi Yazidi minority and sold them into sex slavery.

    A new article in the Islamic State English-language online magazine Dabiq not only admits the practice but justifies it according to the theological rulings of early Islam.

    “After capture, the Yazidi women and children were then divided according to the Sharia amongst the fighters of the Islamic State who participated,” the article says.

    Govornment And Churches Are Overwhelmed – What Do We Do With The Orphans On The Border?

    We are facing a great disaster on the southern border of our nation, and how we react is going to have serious repercussions. First of all, we have to take care of these people. Churches and government are doing their best to help, but are overwhelmed.

    What is the best solution for this problem? For those children who have them, it would seem the best thing to do, would be to reunite them whether they are here legally or not. The problem is, that would send a message that illegal kids are welcomed here if their parents are here,

    Well then, maybe we should send them back to whoever was taking care of them. But can we trust the authorities down there? Once many years ago I was trying to help two street children.

    Is the American majority’s will to defend natural marriage against the rainbow of perverse counterfeits dead? Has America become a Judiciocracy ruled by a bevy of black-robed autocrats?

    Not if you ask the thousands who marched on Washington Thursday in this year’s “March for Marriage” rally. Not if you ask potential 2016 presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

    They took on the counter-constitutional idea of judicial supremacy. They defended true marriage.
