Obama Ignores Tennessee Flood Victims

For those of you who think this administration really is malicious — okay, when it comes to free markets, capitalism, and the greatness of the country I’m with you — we have greater examples that the President and his advisors really are just amateurish.

On April 30th, Barack Obama issued a Presidential Proclamation declaring today the National Day of Prayer.

In it, he wrote:

Let us remember in our thoughts and prayers those suffering from natural disasters in Haiti, Chile, and elsewhere, and the people from those countries and from around the world who have worked tirelessly and selflessly to render aid. Let us pray for the families of the West Virginia miners, and the people of Poland who so recently and unexpectedly lost many of their beloved leaders

The next day, Tennessee began to flood, people began to die, and things changed pretty dramatically.

Barack Obama has still, to my knowledge, not spoken personally of the events in Tennessee or attempted to visit — an act that would have gotten George W. Bush savagely attacked by the press, Democrats, and Congress.

More troubling, Barack Obama neither altered the National Day of Prayer Proclamation nor issued a subsequent one.

Heck, even Bob McDonnell reissued his Confederate History Proclamation to include a line about slavery.
