    His reponse to Texas was quite different: Bastrop County Complex fire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    He was still butt-hurt from his shellacking less than a year before the Texas fires.

    What is special about this fire that would cause Obama to want to visit the area other than one of his advisors telling what he should do?
    We do not have the worst fires in state history 3 or 4 times a year.

    We are quite used to seasonal fires. These are not seasonal fires, these are the results of extremely dry weather, basically a drought, dry thunderstorms and excessive dry fuel.

    So, as expected, if Obama doesn't visit he's an A-hole and if he does visit he's an A-hole. Seriously, folks, you need to take something for your ODS.

It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    You are really a one-trick pony, eh?

    Anyway, I don't think anyone...certainly not me...has said that Obama is a A-hole.

    Not at all...however, for you to simply rant on and on about how bad I'm treating Obama shows that you have no cogent remarks to make...so yeah, you might as well shut up and get out of the thread.

    When you set up an outhouse, don't expect people to come by and leave caviar and truffles.

    These are the same clueless libs who won't let us cut down the trees in the first place. If they would have let us cut down the trees, we wouldn't have any forest fires.

    Your point misses the point of this thread as well.

    But, since you brought it up...and since I'm tired of dealing with the "poor Obama" deflections, I'll comment on YOUR deflection.

    Sure, if we cut down our trees in Colorado, it would make it easier to deal with wildfires...but it won't eliminate them. The fires are caused by our perennial low water conditions. These conditions will continue and whatever vegetation grows after you cut down the trees will still burn.

    Now, I don't know about you, but I happen to like trees. I like to hike amongst them. I like to see them when I'm at a hidden-away mountain lake casting my lures.
