What states and what disasters? Well, for example, a deal like the “Louisana Purchase,” which was just a payoff to buy Sen. Landrieu’s vote, would have helped Hawaii recover from it’s devastating earthquake.
Wait, what earthquake in Hawaii? Gateway Pundit points out that in 1868 there was a major earthquake in Hawaii that killed 77 people, and in 1975 an earthquake in Hawaii killed two people.
Obama either has a long memory, or he intended to say the “earthquake in Haiti.” And if he was referring to Haiti, how and why would federal money intended for a state in the U.S. under the guise of America’s health care end up in a foreign country?
In his desperation to “sell” a health care plan nobody wants, Obama is turning to the government’s “Department of Information I Pulled Out My Ass” more and more.
In any case, here’s Obama saying something that would have had the mainstream media clamoring to mock him if Bush had said it. Personally I think the guy’s starting to come unwrapped:
Note: Hawaii is our 58th state, for those of you keeping score at home.
Also… while Fox News’ Bret Baier was pinning Obama to the ground and the president was spinning and fact-twisting like a clown on a balloon animal making binge, Joe Biden was calling Fox News the “Patron Saint of making things up.” Ironic.
