Thank you for posting this article.
We can ‘blame’ FEMA all we want, but having the exact ‘right’ supplies in the exact places after such a wide scale storm is impossible.
We can ‘blame’ Obama, but he doesn’t control FEMA, and he couldn’t ‘run’ FEMA all by himself if he tried.
I don’t worship Obama, so I don’t expect him to provide miracles, even if he promises them.
We weathered a large storm, less than 200 people were killed, and nature destroyed some of what man built. It happens all the time, all over the world.

America has grown weaker since Obama and crew took office and played their socialist games. We cannot let him stay in office anymore.
