Where’s the outrage? Where’s the gnashing of teeth and how GWB doesn’t care about the little people? Oh I forgot, he’s not the President anymore. How do you explain this little nugget?
MURRAY, Ky. (AP) – Utility crews renewed work in subfreezing temperatures Saturday in their effort to put the power back on for nearly a million customers left in the dark by an ice storm that crippled parts of several states this week.
Thousands of people in ice-caked Kentucky awoke in motels and shelters, asked to leave their homes by authorities who said emergency teams in some areas were too strapped to reach everyone in need of food, water and warmth. (emphasis mine).
Dozens of deaths have been reported and many people are pleading for a faster response to the power outages. About 536,000 homes and businesses across Kentucky were without power, down from more than 600,000 the largest outage in state history, surpassing the damage last year from the remnants of Hurricane Ike. (emphasis mine)
I guess if you’re a redneck from Western Kentucky (cue banjo music) and you don’t rate highly on the Obamessiah’s donation list you are just SOL.
The outages disabled water systems in much of the western part of the state, where some in rural areas resorted to dipping buckets in a creek. Authorities warned it could be days or weeks before power was restored in the most remote spots.
Who is responsible for FEMA?
Local officials grew angrier at what they said was a lack of help from the state and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
“We’ve got people out in some areas we haven’t even visited yet,” Smith said. “We don’t even know that they’re alive.”
Smith said FEMA was still a no-show days after the storm. (emphasis mine)
Let’s play the guessing game. What party affiliation do you think the govenor of Kentucky is? You never be able to tell from the artical. Well, I guess you could since the lack of one indicates it is a capital D.
Where is Obambi during all this? Hosting a Super Bowl party at the toasty White House for all his cronies. It reminds me of that line in Animal Farm by George Orwell,Â ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL, BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.
