Say, How’s That Obama Promise To New Orleans Working?

‘Memba this?

Though his first promise in office is to work on the economy, President Barack Obama vowed on his new Web site this week to deliver on an old promise: Rebuild Louisiana. (snip)

On his new White House Web site, Obama vows to “keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.”

Remember all the promises he made during the campaign? So, how’s that working?

Specifically, Obama would ensure New Orleans has a levee and pumping system to protect the city against a 100-year storm by 2011, free up rebuilding funds that had been allocated but not released and to rebuild hospitals and schools.

Much of the work remains on the drawing boards. The administration got into a tussle with Sen. David Vitter, R-La., after he briefly stalled the nomination of Craig Fugate to head the Federal Emergency Management Agency because new federal flood maps included areas that were not previously designated flood zones, including much of Louisiana’s Cameron Parish, Grand Isle, and Lafourche Parish.

Apparently, he has way too much on his plate, what with outsourcing Stimulus, Cap and Tax, and Health System overhaul to Congress, along with all his campaign trips, vacations to the Grand Canyon, Europe, Yellowstone, and Martha’s Vineyard, among others. Oh, and let’s not forget trips to the Middle East, offering apologies for America being great.

Seriously, what is he actually doing in office other than yapping and going after private citizens?

But that means a large number of political promises Obama made during his historic campaign have been pushed to the back of the agenda. Most, in fact. The Web site, which compiled a list of 515 Obama pledges, lists 374 under the category of “no action.”

Again, what the hell is he actually doing?

    Best phrase in this…
    what with outsourcing Stimulus, Cap and Tax, and Health System overhaul to Congress…..

    I think 2 things:

    1. Obama thought the “machine” that got him there..his community organizers, commie buddies (some now Czars) and ACORN thugs…were going to make anything he wanted happen…and it hasn’t worked.

    2. Congress thought his holy status and eloquent speech (when the teleprompter is working) was going to let them do whatever they wanted without him! They were as happy with him not being around as he has been with Hillary being one the road!

    You’re right to ask the question, “What the hell has he done?”

    Mostly lied and showed his incompetence, inexperience and total inability to govern… or even appreciate… a democracy.

    Obama is 1/8 of his way through his term
