Washington, DC - President Obama made sure he was in position to save New York from torrential floodwaters and chaos as he took the to the National Response Coordination Center. With no background in meteorology and with the US economy flagging, Obama gave America reassurance that the coming hurricane would not pose a danger, just by his presence and uncanny ability to bite his lower lip, as if he’s truly focused on his name tag and computing complex mathematical storm models.
Even more reassuring for America, is that NRCC is set-up in FEMA headquarters. While the hurricane, expected to last 72-hours, has been very tragic and has claimed over ten lives, the combination of Obama and FEMA are not the most comforting combination of masterminds to pull our nation from a national crisis.
As he bunkered down for the night early Saturday, Obama warned the East Coast to prepare for a ‘long 72 hours’. Obama stated that he would be manning the Hurricane Irene disaster command center in Washington during the storm.
“This is going to be a tough slog getting
through this thing,” Obama said during a video conference that included senior US officials.
“It’s going to be a long 72 hours. Obviously
a lot of families are going to be affected … the biggest concern I’m having
right now has to do with flooding and power.” Obama made no mention of the stalling US economy.
