President Offers Comfort to Sandy Victim
Out of every disaster there is usually one iconic photo that sums up how the government feels about helping it's citizens. Out of Katrina the one iconic, now infamous photo was of president George W. Bush in Air Force One flying over Louisiana, looking down upon the devastation that Katrina wrought on those below. Bush left "Brownie" in charge with deadly results.
Our most recent natural disaster, Hurricane Sandy wrecking havoc on the east coast of New Jersey, President Obama put his presidential campaign aside and flew into the ravaged areas of storm damaged New Jersey and personally comforted the survivors who lost so much. While New Jersey governor Chris Christy looked on, President Obama put his arms around a woman whose marina business was totally destroyed and told her that she will get all the help she needs to put her back in business.
Now seriously, can anyone imagine George W. Bush or for that matter, Mitt Romney in this picture?
Thank you President Obama for being the leader we need at this time of our great national tragedy.
One president is "hands on" and one is "hands off." Yes folks, we do need some government in our lives.
