Michael Brown has some nerve! The man who mismanaged one of the greatest natural disasters of all time, the man who left people on rooftops in New Orleans and the man who had people begging for food, shelter and water stated today that President Obama has moved too quickly on Hurricane Sandy!
Salon.com has this story about 'heckuva job, Brownie' sticking his head out of the ground with no shame:
Holding a press conference at FEMA yesterday might have been a bit premature, given that the most serious impacts of the storm are not expected until later today, he feels.
“Here’s my concern,” Brown says. “People in the northeast are already beginning to blow it off…. [New York City Mayor Michael] Bloomberg has shut down the subway…[launched] evacuations…. I don’t object…they should be doing all of that. But in the meantime, various news commentators…[and others] in New York are shrugging their shoulders, saying, ‘What’s this all about?’ It’s premature [when] the brunt of the storm won’t happen until later this afternoon.”
Brown says he understands why the president might have chosen to have a news conference earlier rather than later.
“My guess is, he wants to get ahead of it — he doesn’t want anybody to accuse him of not being on top of it or not paying attention or playing politics in the middle of it,” he says. “He probably figured Sunday was a good day to do a press conference.”
