Where Was the President?
President Obama apparently is incapable of showing any empathy on behalf of his fellow Americans, across six states, who have been affected by the devastating storms that killed 45 people (24 in North Carolina) and destroyed the lives of countless Americans.
With nary a word of sympathy, Obama played golf on Sunday while emergency crews across the South searched for victims, the homeless struggled to pick up the pieces, and survivors mourned their losses.
From the Gulf Oil spill to the rebellion against Gadhafi, Obama has failed as a leader. Leaders aren’t slow to get off the mark responding to a national crisis. They take the “lead” explaining policy, addressing issues of national import and conveying the feelings of a country during times of tragedy.
Due to a public relations fallout, I’m sure Obama issued some kind of statement on Monday. Unfortunately the people of the South were affected Saturday. Once again, too little too late.
