Back before the election a little storm hit the East coast, you might remember it, it was called Hurricane Sandy.
President Obama was not the first president to have a devastating hurricane hit the country during his term. I mean, how could we forget Hurricane Katrina, especially since the mainstream media keeps bringing it up constantly. As if comparing Bush’s response to Katrina to Obama’s response to Sandy, will make Obama look better.
We all know that if Obama was a Republican, his current response to Sandy would be eviscerated on CNN and MSNBC. Victims would be interviewed over and over again, there would be weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth over the fact that he took a vacation to Hawaii, while people on the East Coast were still living in tents.
The news coverage and name calling would last for a century.
But since Obama is the media’s fair haired boy, the media treats his response to Sandy as if Obama personally rode in on a white stallion, cape flying and armor shining, to rescue the people of the East coast.
Who was ACTUALLY out there personally, using their own time before an election, to help the victims of the hurricane?
And the left mocked him for it, because that’s the kind of people they are.
Obama briefly visited the victims, lied to them about how “immediate” the help would be, went back to his campaign (he never stops campaigning) and then jetted off to Hawaii for vacation, while many of the victims were still living in tents and dealing with cleanup, in the North East winter.
If Bush had pulled that, the left would never shut up about. In fact, they still haven’t really shut up about the fact that, when Katrina hit, he was on vacation at his ranch in Texas, despite the fact that he almost immediately returned to Washington after the Hurricane hit.
This is the same media that was strangely lacking in criticism when Obama jetted off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser, the day after our Ambassador was assassinated in Libya.
To hear the main stream media tell it, the crisis on the East coast is over and Obama and his trusty steed fixed everything.
If you needed confirmation that the media is biased, you have it.
When Bush raised the debt ceiling it was “unpatriotic”, when Obama does the same, it’s necessary to save our economy.
When Bush started wars without the permission of congress, it was unconstitutional; Obama does the same and he’s lauded as a saint.
Romney gives of his time and money to help victims of a hurricane and he’s a horrible manipulating member of the 1%, Obama takes a helicopter ride over the areas affected and he’s praised for his response to an awful event.
As Gateway Pundit has pointed out, the media is now one with the democratic party and they are going to do their best to shape this narrative.
As I’ve said before, we are going to have to find a way to scream louder, get more attention, and use every ounce of our redheaded stepchild stubbornness to re-brand our party and remind people that we aren’t what the MSM makes us out to be.
