Obama's "Katrina"

Remember when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans? The federal government's tepid response to that disaster elicited all kinds of "President George W. Bush don't care about minorites" news stories and op-eds? Remember?

An ice storm recently hit the state of Kentucky. Some 50+ people have perished, and hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians are still without power. FEMA's on the job, right ...?! Nope:

"[M]ore than 300,000 residents remained without power Monday and some areas had yet to see aid workers nearly a week after the storm, a fact not lost on some local authorities.

The winter blast turned out to be the worst natural disaster in Kentucky’s history.

"'We haven’t seen FEMA. They haven’t been here,' said Jaime Green, a spokeswoman for the emergency operations center in Lyon County, about 95 miles northwest of Nashville, Tenn."

All that said, I have family who live in Kentucky. If you Google "Obama/FEMA Kentucky" you get stories in which Obama's "fed" is doing good work. Members of ma famille have told me -- via cell phone -- that they've been without electricity for two weeks ... and they've yet to see a member of St. Obama's Reconstructive America in their midst.

I guess when you're a Cracker who's life is, literally, cracking around you ... that don't mean much, as far as the mainstream media's concerned, these days at least, right?!
