May Mayfield made it clear days ahead of landfall, that this storm would probably result in "heavy loss of life". In my years of following storms, I don't believe he has ever voiced as much concern as he did with this storm and where it was heading. As far as I can tell, he is highly respected and is not noted for over-hyping storms.
Would have it been asking to much for the president to cut his month long vacation early and head back to the White House and act like the leader he claims to be by ensuring that every damn relief and rescue agency was in place, ready to go. You can't tell me that wouldn't have a made a difference.
Do I think everything happening on the ground now is his fault. Absolutely not. Do I think he doesn't care about these mostley black, poverty stricken people. Absolutley not. I think he cares a lot.
Unlike any future terrorist acts, this type of disaster we knew was coming. He could have been back in Washington rattling cages and ramping up.
For those who blame the people for not leaving, because they had fair warning. Well, the President had the same warning.
