    Think "Katrina" and "New Orleans" and "George Bush" while pondering this....

    President Barack Obama hates North Dakota, mid-western white people, and has allowed the Red River to destroy peoples lives while he sat back and did nothing.

    This is a "natural disaster". And since Bush got blamed for a hurricane, it's time to blame Obama for flooding and winter storms.

    Where's the Federal Government?
    Where's the help?
    Where's the funds?
    Where's the compassion?
    Where's President Obama?

    The President is absent and ignoring these people because of their race. That's all we heard about Bush and Katrina, so it's only appropriate that we blame Obama..............not only for the lack of response, but for the actual natural disaster itself. Obama brought this disaster about, and then purposefully ignored the plight of the people because he's a racist. Again, only reciting the mantra that we got bombarded with after Katrina. It's all about race and a President who could care less (Kanye West & Spike Lee anyone?????)

    This President is only concerned with his base, and could care less about those who perhaps didn't vote for him. He's catering to his constituency and leaving Americans alone to die and to lose their homes.

    Doesn't he care? Where's the love? Where's the Hope? Where's the Change?

    He's leaving these poor, victimized white people alone to fend for themselves and suffer, while HE goes off to other lands and tends to other, more important things...............

    Again, think "Katrina/New Orleans/Bush" and get back to me..................

    To his credit he did call. Didnt care, but he called and said AFTER you are hit they will be there to help. Which means you have to earn your disaster now before you get relief, none of this prevent crap.

    Only Bush can hate people, not the other way round. NOw that dems are in, its okay to let people suffer.

    if only ND loved the DNC as much as Acorn and AIG than yes, they would get a bail out too. But such is not the case. They are mainly normal folk who arent important enuff to the country to keep alive. I think Theogt said something like that in another thread, one is more important to the country than the other. So ND doesnt even have that going for them.

    If they do host a telethon, I dare you to go on it and announce to the entire country that "President Obama hates white people" a la P. Diddy.

    It would be an instant classic!

    you dont understand the backlash white people got for that. OMG it was soo wrong. Its only a show of, now that you are in the position, does it seem right. Sure it is stupid, it was stupid when people that could benefit from it did it and its stupid now.

    I;ll be honest, the one thing i like about Obama being in the office is that Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are quiet around here. Nothing about people in Kansas without power, nothing about the people in ND, just the big O doing a great job by them and all is okay.

    I personally dont care, didnt care when they did it to Bush. Im not saying the white man, nor do you understand. I should have said the media and their hype of it.


    Its stupid because it doesnt fall under the jurisdiction for the Prez to do anything. But that doesnt stop finger pointers and that doesnt stop others from doing the same thing.

    I dont agree with it, but with everything else, cant stop it. But this was a country that believed in eye for an eye. Had people kept quiet the first time around this wouldnt happen. But no, had to have a say and had to make a quick buck.

    Even the democrats work up here in N.Dak........Live west of Fargo, out of Flood area. Schools & Colleges shut down so kids could help on the dikes, all non-essential business shut down so everyone could help.....

    Brother In Law had to evac for 5 days

    Former Gov & Secty of Ag Ed Schaffer ended up drivng dump truck hauling sand and clay to dikes after org. driver was on 12 hr shift and was wore out.

    Water dropping now at rate of 12"/day, but still on high alert...Areas west of Fargo got up to 24" of snow, Fargo area 10"....so a quick warmup not needed....another snow forecast for Friday...

    Not that they didnt use any Fed. money, Natl Guard etc.....but local effort was tremendous....

    No looting, didnt see one person sitting on the rooftop waiting for Obama salvation, nobody shot at workers on dikes......

    Sad...and I hate to feel like an Obama defender, when a simple google search
    would've done the trick.

    Obama monitors flooding, pledges federal help
    By LIZ SIDOTI
    Associated Press Writer
    WASHINGTON -- Seeking to avoid a Hurricane Katrina-like leadership failure, President Barack Obama assured the nation Saturday he was keeping close watch on the Midwest floods and putting the government's full weight behind efforts to prevent disaster.

    "Even as we face an economic crisis which demands our constant focus, forces of nature can also intervene in ways that create other crises to which we must respond - and respond urgently," the president said in his weekly radio and Internet address.

    "I will continue to monitor the situation carefully," he pledged. "We will do what must be done to help."

    Obama also implored residents of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota to be vigilant in reading flood-condition reports and to follow instructions from federal, state and local officials should evacuation be necessary. He repeatedly praised volunteers stockpiling sandbags and building levees, saying "their service isn't just inspirational - it's integral to our response."

    In North Dakota, Fargo's fears of a catastrophic flood eased Saturday with word that the Red River apparently crested at lower-than-expected levels, and weary residents turned their attention to ensuring their hastily built levees hold up against an onslaught of ice-laden water expected to stay high for at least a week.

    Obama was spending the weekend at Camp David before leaving Tuesday for a nearly weeklong European trip to address the global economic crisis with leaders of other world powers. But aides stressed that he was being kept abreast of the Midwest flooding despite being away from the White House.

    In office just two months, Obama and his team no doubt are mindful of the Bush administration's bungled response in August 2005 to Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the Gulf Coast and highlighted the country's racial and economic divisions. George W. Bush's popularity took a beating in Katrina's aftermath, and the hurricane has been held up ever since as a symbol of the federal government's incompetence.

    Obama used his weekly address to go to great lengths to describe all that the federal government has been doing as bulging rivers and streams threatened Midwest communities over the past few days. Aides said federal, state and local officials have been coordinating for more than a week.

    Over the past few days, Obama signed emergency and disaster declarations for North Dakota and Minnesota, triggering federal support to help state and local officials who already had efforts under way. On Saturday, he indicated that help for South Dakota could come soon, saying his aides were "keeping close watch on the situation" there.

    The Homeland Security Department and the Federal Emergency Management Agency were coordinating the federal response.

    Obama said the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Coast Guard, the Defense Department, the National Guard and the Health and Human Services Department, as well as the American Red Cross, were involved.

    "At moments like these, we are reminded of the power of nature to disrupt lives and endanger communities," Obama said. "But we are also reminded of the power of individuals to make a difference."

    On that note, he reaffirmed his support for legislation Congress is expected to send to him in the week ahead that would give tens of thousands of people more opportunities to mentor children, clean parks and help the poor, a sweeping call to national service in a time of need.

    Yes he said he would monitor and offer aid. But the disaster would have to come first. You can throw money at a bad company, but dont you dare throw it at people first who could use it.

    Yeah, well................Bush "monitored" Katrina from the air, and "pledged" help too..................

    See, what we all have to understand is not just what Bush did or didn't do AFTER Katrina, but that BUSH WAS PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR KATRINA!!!

    He planned it.
    Chaney hatched the whole affair.
    It was done for no other reason than to "hate" on black folk.
    Haliburton had something to do with it too.
    Karl Rove was in on it.


    THAT was the spin and accepted "google" from the left, the Democrats, and the main-stream media. In fact, it was so thick that I was waiting for Bush to get credit when the next three hurricanes fizzled and didn't cause any damage. I figured that if the President was personally responsible for bringing Katrina about, then he MUST get credit for hurricanes that "missed".

    Of course, we never heard THAT!!

    So, for the recored, and for the sake of continuity and fairness, I say that Obama PLANNED the Fargo/Morehead disaster, and then sat back and did nothing because he hates white people...................

    Just for the sake of FAIRNESS you understand.

    *Sigh* Ay yi yi...Maybe I should've just left well enough alone since the goal is to prove Obama's a dog like most politicians.

    I mean, who cares if people already knows that fact. No, we must reach for nonsense to prove a point.

    This is the kind of garbage that keeps people away from paying attention to politics and actually talking about real issues.
