Obama consoles families and survivors of West, Texas, plant explosion
WACO, Texas – President Barack Obama consoled a rural Texas community rocked by a deadly fertilizer plant explosion, telling mourners Thursday they are not alone in their grief and they will have the nation’s support to rebuild from the devastation.
“This small town’s family is bigger now,” Obama said during a memorial service at Baylor University for victims of last week’s explosion in nearby West, Texas, that killed 14 and injured 200. Nearly 10,000 gathered to remember the first responders killed in the blast, a crowd more than triple the size of West’s entire population of 2,700.
“To the families, the neighbors grappling with unbearable loss, we are here to say you are not alone. You are not forgotten,” Obama said to applause. “We may not all live here in Texas, but we’re neighbors too. We’re Americans too, and we stand with you.” SOURCE
Isn’t that a warm and touching story? Doesn’t that inspire all kinds of love in your heart for the compassion that IS Barack Obama?
He must be a warm and caring President, otherwise we wouldn’t see this headline: President Barack Obama, officials promise recovery from West explosion.
”We’ll be there after the cameras leave and after the attention turns elsewhere. Your country will remain ever ready to help you recover and rebuild and reclaim your community.”
So, if that’s the case, if Obama is ON THE JOB and is going to bring the power of his regime to bear and help rebuild the town of West, TX., why then are we seeing this?
6 months after Sandy, thousands homeless in NY, NJ
Six months after Superstorm Sandy devastated the Jersey shore and New York City and pounded coastal areas of New England, the region is dealing with a slow and frustrating, yet often hopeful, recovery. Tens of thousands of people remain homeless. Housing, business, tourism and coastal protection all remain major issues with the summer vacation – and hurricane – seasons almost here again.
“Some families and some lives have come back together quickly and well, and some people are up and running almost as if nothing ever happened, and for them it’s been fine,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a news conference Thursday. “Some people are still very much in the midst of recovery. You still have people in hotel rooms, you still have people doubled up, you still have people fighting with insurance companies, and for them it’s been terrible and horrendous.” SOURCE
OK, wait a minute, what is this all about? Didn’t President Obama say, regarding victims of Hurricane Sandy: “We are going to be with them every step of the way in helping them to rebuild their lives.”
Isn’t that what he said? Because that’s for damned sure what I HEARD him say. So why then was THIS a headline? Sandy Victim Promised ‘Immediate Help’ by President Obama Still in the Cold.
Surely President Barack Obama wasn’t just *talking*? Was he? Surely Obama wouldn’t make promises and not keep them? Obama didn’t lie did he? Not Obama…
Bull Bagels! Never let a crisis go to waste.
Barack Hussein Obama saw the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the disaster at West as nothing more than photo-op and an opportunity to satisfy his insatiable desire to be in the spotlight as he works his perpetual campaign mode.
Obama doesn’t give a damn about the Sandy victims, all they are to him is a voting block that can mostly be counted on to vote Democrat.
I watched as Barack Obama gave his *campaign style* speech in Waco, I watched and listened as he spoke to the people of West and their friends and neighbors.
I heard him as he attempted to sound like an inspired Full Gospel Preacher, one that gets all fired up on Sunday and bangs the kids in the Choir and *The Church Ladies* the rest of the week. I heard him do his best Jeremiah Wright imitation, and sadly, I watched as the people in that stadium ate that crap up!
Obama sold the folks of West, TX, and the surrounding area, a bill of goods, one that they will never be able to cash in on and rebuild their town with. All Obama had was words, HOLLOW words, words with NO substance, words that reflect exactly what we have in this current President.
Hot air, lies, deceit, shuck and jive, the Obama Legacy.
