Romney Shames Obama Into Going To Louisiana

As the Lonely Conservative points out, while Obama is in Texas for yet more fundraising and speechifying, Romney is headed to Louisiana to show his support for all those affected. Then we get this

(UK Dailymail) President Barack Obama was today forced to announce he will fly to storm-hit Louisiana on Monday – hours after Mitt Romney beat him to the punch by deciding to head there this afternoon.

After it emerged that Obama was still taking time to fit in a campaign stop in Cleveland, Ohio before checking out how clean-up operations are proceeding in the Bayou state, the Obama campaign abruptly cancelled that event.

‘In light of the President’s travel to Louisiana to meet with local officials and view ongoing response and recovery efforts to Hurricane Isaac, President Obama will no longer travel to Cleveland, Ohio on Monday, September 3,’ the campaign said in a terse statement.

Romney had changed his schedule to head to an affected town outside New Orleans while Obama, who has yet to visit the Tropical Storm Isaac zone, headed off to Texas to campaign.

So, almost a week after the storm hit he’s finally going to show up. Why do we have to learn about these things from foreign media sources? But, Champ is only going to cancel one campaign even Monday: he has another scheduled in Toledo. You’ve heard of seagull missions, right? That’s where someone flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps all over everything, then flies off. Well, this is an Obama mission, where he’ll fly in, make a lot of noise, get a lot of pictures taken of him looking like he is Doing Something, then fly off after a brief visit.

He knows he has your votes, New Orleans, so, he really doesn’t need to show you he cares anymore.

    Wasn’t it great that he decided to celebrate the two year end of the Iraq war? Where was his “mission accomplished” banner? I really think we are going to have to fight that war over again after he botched the peace.

  3. Hey, it’s all about leading from behind. Or the 19th hole. One of them.

    And you’d think that the dems would be embarrassed by that.

    But then, dems and teach’s trolls are never about standing up for principles.

    White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday that President Obama had decided to go to look at storm damage in Louisiana even before Mitt Romney announced his trip there.

    Fresh off accepting the GOP’s presidential nomination, Mr. Romney headed to Louisiana Friday morning. Hours later the White House said Mr. Obama would go too — though he will wait until Monday. On Friday, the president was flying past Louisiana to make an official visit to Ft. Bliss in Texas.

    A reporter traveling with the president asked Mr. Carney about the timing: “Had the decision to go to Louisiana on Monday been made before the White House learned that Mitt Romney would be going today?”

    “Yes, it had,” Mr. Carney replied.
