When will he grace the Louisianna coast with his almighty presence? Did he even do a persoanl flyover of the tremendous natural disaster that is happening there? I would rather he take an active role (for appearance sake if nothing else) in this disaster than to fly to Michigan (my home state) and give a commencement speach. He would have had time to fly down to Louisianna after the speach rather than just flying back to DC. The AMERICAN PEOPLE would have more respect for him if he took an active interest in this disaster that has tripled in size in 2 days!

Come on Obama - get in that plane, make a quick trip to the coast and make a speach. Rather spend OUR MONEY doing that then seeing OUR MONEY go to a Cinco de Mayo party at the White House!
