    Saw this on Drudge:

    Obama bounced into announcing visit to storm-ravaged Louisiana after Romney shows him up with surprise visit

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2196389/Mitt-Romney-heads-storm-hit-Louisiana-President-Obama-hits-campaign-trail.html

    President Barack Obama was today forced to announce he will fly to storm-hit Louisiana on Monday – hours after Mitt Romney beat him to the punch by deciding to head there this afternoon.

    After it emerged that Obama was still taking time to fit in a campaign stop in Cleveland, Ohio before checking out how clean-up operations are proceeding in the Bayou state, the Obama campaign abruptly cancelled that event.

    'In light of the President’s travel to Louisiana to meet with local officials and view ongoing response and recovery efforts to Hurricane Isaac, President Obama will no longer travel to Cleveland, Ohio on Monday, September 3,' the campaign said in a terse statement.



    Point goes to Romney on this one.

    I remember when Bush Sr. was severely criticized for (supposedly) not responding quickly to hurricane Andrew. Looks like Romney is being proactive. Good for him.

    Oh, and how nice that Obama is going to visit the storm's aftermath ON MONDAY!

    Oh look! The Democrats are politicizing people's suffering again.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said in a statement it was "the height of hypocrisy for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to make a pretense of showing sympathy for the victims of Hurricane Isaac when their policies would leave those affected by this disaster stranded and on their own." He said the federal budget proposed by Ryan would have severely cut disaster funding.
