President Obama is coming to New Jersey on Sunday, the White House announced this afternoon.
The president will be in Paterson, but further details of the visit have not yet been announced.
Now let’s be clear. This is more than a week after Irene made landfall in NJ and 9 days after it impacted NC. In the aftermath of Katrina, Bush was faulted for being slow to react to the devastation wrought by Katrina. Bush was in the region less than 5 days after landfall. Obama has yet to announce a visit to upstate NY, Western MA, or VT (which is arguably where the President should be visiting.)
Where is the progressive outrage over President Obama’s failure to visit those affected by Hurricane Irene?
