Faith Based Federal Emergency Responses simply won't do anymore John McWon't... This isn't enough buddy... Obama buried that today when he grabbed a shovel and worked.
ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain today issued the following statement on the flooding in the Midwest:
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those impacted by the flooding throughout the Midwest. Cindy and I would like to extend our sympathies to all those who have lost loved ones, and stand ready to help those in the Midwest to recover and rebuild."
Is it too much to ask for a President that we can Respect... Enough with the Talk, Grab a Shovel!
Obama visited the flooded Midwest later Saturday, stopping in Quincy, Ill., to help fill sandbags.
In Quincy, Obama helped volunteers fill sandbags that are being trucked to reinforce levees on both sides of the Mississippi River, less than a mile away. Authorities expected the river at Quincy to reach a near-record level of 32 feet by Wednesday. Severe flooding already has hit Cedar Rapids, Iowa, northwest of Quincy.
"Since I've been involved in public office we've not seen this kind of devastation," Obama said as he used a shovel to fill bags being held by local resident Dylan Muldoon, 10. He vowed to push the federal and state governments to provide needed aid to the stricken areas.
