Excerpt from RedState
Written by Brandon Morse
Welcome to the party, POTUS.
The media coverage around Louisiana has been intense, but in the political world, nothing has topped the news more than President Obama's unwillingness to travel to the flood damaged state. Obama has been on vacation at Martha's Vineyard, and was unwilling to part from the golf course.
This has opened him up for a barrage of criticisms, mostly regarding his hypocrisy surrounding the way he harangued George W. Bush for simply flying over the state during Katrina. Furthermore, Obama made little in the way of friends when he also sent out a "guidance" message telling Louisiana residents not to be racist as they rebuild.
