Obama's Katrina

If he can't get aid into a country surrounded by water, what hope does an American city have?

PhotobucketRemember how the Dems instanty politicized the Bush Admnistration response to Hurricane Katrina? Somehow, it was all Bush's fault that New Orleans, long run by Democrats in a state run by Democrats, had failed to carry out their own disaster plan; even leaving dozens of school buses that could have been used for evacuation to be flooded.

Remember the stories about how bad conditions were for the survivors in New Orleans and how Bush must hate black people to let the misery go on day after day?

Does Obama Hate the People of Haiti?


PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI - JANUARY 17: Residents of the Petinville neighborhood of Port-au-Prince reach out to receive food distributed by the United Nations World Food Program January 17, 2010 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Aid agencies are struggling to distribute food as quickly as possible but face major logistical problems in doing so caused by the massive earthquake that devastated the Haitian capital five days ago.
Five Days ago and the people of Haiti continue to suffer. Who's to blame?

Fuel shortages, poor communications and a logjam at the Port au Prince airport on Sunday continued to hinder a massive international aid effort to Haiti five days after a devastating earthquake in which more than 100,000 are now feared to have died.

The United Nations humanitarian agency, Ocha, warned at the weekend that humanitarian operations might be forced to shut down in the next few days if fuel supplies were not replenished.

As Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General, headed for Haiti to see for himself the extent of the worst humanitarian disaster that the world body has had to cope with in decades, concern grew over delays in the airlift to the capital’s airport, which is under US control.

Alain Joyandet, French co-operation minister, told reporters at the airport he had protested to Washington via the US ambassador about the US military’s management of the airport where he said a French medical aid flight had been turned away.
