Senator LeMieux: Obama not doing enough for Florida
By BILL KACZOR and MELISSA NELSON
PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla. (June 6, 2010) -- U.S. Sen. George LeMieux criticized President Barack Obama's handling of the Gulf oil spill Saturday, saying he hasn't done enough to help Florida and the other affected states or their residents.[...]
"I don't want to just see my president come down here and be here for a couple hours and then go back off to Chicago or go back off to Washington, D.C.," the Florida Republican said while visiting Pensacola Beach.
"I want him on the ground helping us work on the ground, managing through solutions, pushing people for answers."[...]
When it comes to the point where a country's president has to be personally overseeing every aspect of a disaster relief effort, that's saying the country's disaster relief system is broken or greatly inadequate.
