    There are only so many hours in a day. A person has got to prioritize. Presidents are persons. soooo....
    Well said!

    There is nothing Obama can do right enough for some folks. If he was out in the gulf, skimming oil, they'd say he was grand standing and leveraging a crisis for his own gain.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I am someone from the south, and live near the gulf of Mexico. I don't need Obama here to distract people from doing their jobs in getting this mess cleaned up. The thing is no body is going to be happy with Obama when he does something right, so in turn is lessen the real criticisms of him.

    Do you want to try again?

    See what happens when you ASSume?
    I too didn't blame him for Katrina after I got more information about it instead of going to the Mass Media. I blame the mayor of New Orleans, and the politicians for not telling their people to leave when they need too. It funny people assume that we all blamed bush for Katrina when in fact we blame Louisiana politicians for being idiots...
