    MSN, CNN, and Fox are all reporting on the storm in the same way on their websites. Are they all failing to report because Obama doesn't speak about it? Why does the President need to speak about it? Obama isn't speaking about the Super Bowl and they seem to have no problem covering that as their top story.
    You need to read my post again. I said MSM, not MSN.

    I seem to recall someone saying that regarding the CA guard and the fires out in LA. >90% of the CA guard was still at home. Egg on poster's face.

    What % of the KYNG is in Iraq and Afghanistan?

    Re: FEMA condemned for slow response to ice storm crisis

    There were several articles like this yesterday about FEMA doing a bad job in Kentucky.

    So I was surprised this morning when The Today Show told us that FEMA was getting glowing revues for its work in Kentucky after the ice storms.

    FEMA is so much better under Obama I guess is the point.

    I don't know about the percentage, but 4,600 have been called in to help with the ice storm. That's the entire available KY Natl. Guard.

    It's interesting that FEMA hasn't improved any, even with the ONE as President now. It was bad enough last September when Hurricane Ike caused hundreds of thousands to lose power here, but at least it was warm then. The poor folks without power now are using anything they can to stay warm. There was one family on tv over the weekend that was burning their wood fence to stay warm. The shelters, if you can get to them, are mostly full of people, so there's not much that people can do.

    Come on Obama, get FEMA into high gear. Just because Kentucky voted for Bush is no reason to abandon the people here.
    FEMA is NOT a rescue or help agency. These are the thugs of the federaly. They are strictly crowd control. In Tennessee and probably every other state in the US the fence around TEMA (tennessee emergency .....)has the razor sharp spikes pointed outward toward us. They are in a fortress,not hideing from the rain, or wind, or snow, or ice, nor dark of night ,but from us the terrible citizen. No chit,go check out your state emergency management digs,and I`m sure you will find.... The rescuers are ,church groups, community volunteer groups ,and eventualy the Red Cross. The day after Katrina came ashore ( early morning) with winds in New Orleans still at Huricane strength,CNN broadcast at sites where church groups had already set up to provide food and coffee to those who actully care. FEMA and the US Government have a whole different agenda where you and I are concerned. FEMA is part of the massive federal bureaucracy which will NEVER be expedient.

    The TODAY SHOW...hmmmm . I wonder if they were reporting the facts or if they were entertaining their viewers with the kind of news they wanted to hear. I vaguely recall similar reports of how great the government was doing in New Orleans and then the truth leaked out. When the truth comes out about FEMAs performance in KY perhaps you might want to find a different news source ( not the T and A comedy hr), and maybe ask for a REAL rescue group...FEMA ain`t. And gee hasn`t the economy gotten so much better under Obama .
