Former Federal Emergency Management Agency director Michael Brown — who lost his job for sitting on his butt in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina — says President Barack Obama is acting too fast in responding to the Superstorm Sandy crisis.
One thing he’s gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [the hurricane] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in…Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas? Why was this so quick?… At some point, somebody’s going to ask that question…. This is like the inverse of Benghazi.
As FEMA director under former President George W. Bush, Brown sat on his hands and did not respond quickly when Katrina devastated New Orleans and other areas of the Gulf Coast. Bush told Brown that he was “doing a heckava job” but Brown later lost his job under intense pressure.
Brown isn’t the only way slamming Obama for a rapid response to the storm that has left at least 30 people dead and caused billions in damage. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and failed Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich criticised the President for cancelling campaign trips.
You’ll notice he’s canceling his trips over the hurricane. He did not cancel his trips over Benghazi.
Where is this line of thinking headed? Rod Serling said it best:
This highway leads to the shadowy tip of reality: you’re on a through route to the land of the different, the bizarre, the unexplainable…Go as far as you like on this road. Its limits are only those of mind itself. Ladies and Gentlemen, you’re entering the wondrous dimension of imagination. Next stop….The Twilight Zone.
And so it goes…
