This is what we could have had…..
Heck of a job there, Mike Brown. Yep. That’s how the Republicans roll. But instead we got competence, which the Republicans say Obama is just doin’ to score political points:
The Competent One updated us on the Irene situation Sunday:
First, let me say that this is a storm that has claimed lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who’ve lost loved ones and those whose lives have been affected by the storm. You need to know that America will be with you in your hour of need.
While the storm has weakened as it moves north, it remains a dangerous storm that continues to produce heavy rains. One of our chief concerns before Irene made landfall was the possibility of significant flooding and widespread power outages. And we’ve been getting reports of just that from our state and local partners. Many Americans are still at serious risk of power outages and flooding, which could get worse in the coming days as rivers swell past their banks.
So I want people to understand that this is not over. Response and recovery efforts will be an ongoing operation, and I urge Americans in affected areas to continue to listen for the guidance and direction of their state and local officials.
Before the storm made landfall, the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA worked very closely with our state and local partners, as well as volunteer organizations, to pre-position supplies and teams of first responders along the hurricane’s projected track. And the American Red Cross opened shelters in communities across the region. I want to thank those Americans for their work over the past several days, which has saved lives and property up and down the East Coast.
Clearly, it’s best for Obama to stop being competent immediately so’s he can be a gen-u-whine brownie instead of a good for everything suck up.
Also, you hurricanes are on notice – stop giving Obama opportunities to show Americans how it can be done. Stop playing political games, hurricanes! You know God only wants you to destroy the poor people.
Lastly, for you Luntzian learners, it’s best to pat your party on the back in public to big display (see: Mission Accomplished banner), especially when you are not doing a good job. This is not political posturing, it’s patriotism.
“Real America” wants to take us back to the Great Days of heck of a job, Brownie. See you in small government Hell!
