The Test

"Southern Storm Recovery a Test for President," the Washington Post headline read. As he surveyed the destruction, Obama told residents they will "not be forgotten." But - there's always an ominous "but" - there was "little sign of federal aid or government officials, an absence that revealed the immensity of a cleanup effort that spans eight states" wrote the Post. As if FEMA magically appears within minutes of a natural disaster. As for Obama being tested, remember that little incident in the Gulf involving a spot of BP oil? You know, the one USA Today and others called "the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history." What does the president have to do to prove his mettle -- don a biblical robe and divine manna from dew like Moses? Sheesh.
