Correction: Obama is NOT in Ohio today, but in Texas at Ft. Bliss commemorating the 2-year withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
“His record is a substantive record when it comes to the profound commitment and decision to end the war in Iraq and bring our troops home. And his record is substantial when it comes to supporting our veterans,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday of the trip.
We all know by now the story of Yahoo’s firing of David Chalian after a “hot mike” moment when he accused the GOP of carrying on with their convention while “black people are drowning” during Hurricane Isaac.
The GOP did the right thing in delaying and toning down the convention in deference to American citizens who were suffering.
After a rousing acceptance speech last night by Governor Mitt Romney, which was viewed favorably by most except MSNBC who naturally pulled it apart, Governor Romney took off for New Orleans to lend moral support to the victims of the hurricane.
But where is Obama, our Commander-in-Chief who should be visiting the area and also lending moral support?
Not surprising, but Obama AND Biden are on their way to Ohio AGAIN to campaign. Obama’s place of landing is unknown to this writer and she doesn’t care, but Biden is headed to Lordstown, the site of a GM plant.
Even though MSNBC complained after last night “we still don’t know much about Romney” his visit to New Orleans tells us what a presidency under Romney would look like: one with leadership and the ability to perceive where priorities lie.
Obama didn’t pay a visit to Virginia last year after Hurricane Irene. But after all, it’s a “red” state. And so is Louisiana.
Chalian should now be asking Obama “how can you be campaigning while black people are drowning?”
