HOPE/CHANGE!!! Obama And FEMA Leave Americans To Die In Kentucky

Kentucky's Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear declared a state of emergency on January 27th.

Obama, on his website, scolded the Bush administration for poor response to Hurricane Katrina. Where is he now? Where is the MSM?

I suppose hopey/changey administration is too busy pushing the stimulus pkg to worry about Americans freezing to death in Kentucky.

Local officials were growing angry with what they said was a lack of help from the state and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In Grayson County, about 80 miles southwest of Louisville, Emergency Management Director Randell Smith said the 25 National Guardsmen who have responded have no chain saws to clear fallen trees.

"We've got people out in some areas we haven't even visited yet," Smith said. "We don't even know that they're alive."

Smith said FEMA has been a no-show so far.

"I'm not saying we can't handle it; we'll handle it," Smith said. "But it would have made life a lot easier" if FEMA had reached the county sooner, he said.

More from Jammie Wearing Fool

Update: Gov. Steve Beshear called up his entire Army National Guard on Saturday. Three days after issuing state of emergency.

Again, Obama and the MSM ...MIA.
