Certainly we remember all the grief President Bush got for his handling of Hurricane Katrina four years ago. Now while a bunch of counties, including Atlanta, continue to remain victims of intense flooding (at least 8 people have died so far) in the state of Georgia, Barack Obama has still not responded:
Dry skies over parts of Atlanta brought welcome relief to many residents Tuesday, but the impact of widespread flooding continued to take its toll on surrounding areas.But Obama have already responded to this mess? I mean, this has been going on for days now. Where's the outrage? Where's FEMA? Or the Coast Guard? Or is just proof once again that Barack Obama doesn't care about Black people? Perhaps when Barry gets around to helping the people of Georgia, he can tell us.
At least eight people have died in Georgia from the flooding, and one person is missing and presumed dead in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
A car trying to navigate a flooded road was swept away during the Tuesday morning commute in Douglas County, west of Atlanta, county emergency official Jason Milhollin said.
Four other people who tried to rescue the driver were also swept away, and all five were later rescued by emergency workers, Milhollin said.
"They were fine. No one went to hospital," he said. "Luckily, they had a fence to hold on to, and we got the boat to them."
Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue pleaded with residents to stay off the roads, noting that nearly all the fatalities were drivers and passengers swept away by the floodwaters."Stuff is important, but it's not nearly as important as your life," he said. "Please give these waters time to recede."
Perdue said he planned to ask President Obama to declare a federal emergency in Georgia. The governor has declared states of emergency in 17 flood-stricken counties.
