Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

A Louisiana newspaper called on President Obama to cut short his summer vacation in Martha’s Vineyard and visit the flood-ravaged areas in and around Baton Rouge. 

In an editorial published last night, The Advocate argued that Obama’s current vacation is akin to President George W. Bush’s lackluster response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

“Last week, as torrential rains brought death, destruction and misery to Louisiana, the president continued his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard, a playground for the posh and well-connected.

Sometimes, presidential visits can get in the way of emergency response, doing more harm than good. But we don’t see that as a factor now that flood waters are subsiding, even if at an agonizing pace. It’s past time for the president to pay a personal visit, showing his solidarity with suffering Americans.

And if the president can interrupt his vacation for a swanky fundraiser for fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton, as he did on Monday, then surely he can make time to show up for a catastrophe that’s displaced thousands.

 The optics of Obama golfing while Louisiana residents languished in flood waters was striking. It evoked the precedent of the passive federal response to the state’s agony in 2005, a chapter of history no one should ever repeat.

The president acted prudently in officially declaring a disaster for the flooded part of the state, a key step in advancing federal aid. We’ve been heartened so far by the active involvement of Craig Fugate, head of Federal Emergency Management Agency, a far cry from FEMA’s hapless Michael Brown in the days after hurricanes Katrina and Rita. U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was slated to visit Louisiana today to assess the damage.

But a disaster this big begs for the personal presence of the president at ground zero. In coming here, the president can decisively demonstrate that Louisiana’s recovery is a priority for his administration – and the United States of America.

 The president’s vacation is scheduled to wrap up on Sunday. But he should pack his bags now, and pay a call on communities who need to know that in a national catastrophe, they are not alone.”

Mike Huckabee put in his 2 cents as well. Here’s an excerpt:

“Maybe if it rains in Martha’s Vineyard and you have to cancel a golf game, you might fire up ol’ Air Force One and venture down to check on my friends in Louisiana. I know it will make it there, because it’s taken you and the fam all over the world on some pretty nifty vacations. I don’t begrudge you those vacations, by the way. You need them. But Louisiana needs you right now. Not because you can personally fix it, but because you showing up means a lot of resources will show up as will the cameras to help the nations see how bad it is.

Yes, I’m a partisan Republican when it comes to politics, but this isn’t about our politics—it’s about our people. President Clinton would have already been there. I know there are some things about his Presidency we don’t want you to imitate. But showing up when Americans are hurting would do you and the country some good.”

FOX reports that the state could now be looking at its biggest housing crisis since Katrina, with an estimated 40,000 homes damaged.

Officials estimated that 90% of the homes and businesses in Denham Springs were impacted.

Locals are dealing with a heat index of 100 degrees as they clean up and assess the damages.

More than 80,000 people have signed up for federal disaster aid. DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson is in the area today.

VOTE FOR DONALD J. TRUMP AND MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
