McCain ignored request to cancel visit to flood-ravaged Iowa.»


thinkprogress.org

Today, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) visited areas of Iowa hit hard by recent flooding. His press secretary said the trip was “practical” for McCain because he happened to be “on his way to Minnesota for a town hall meeting.” Iowa Gov. Chet Culver (D), however, disagreed with the practicality of the trip as his state undergoes a massive flood recovery effort, noting that McCain ignored his request to cancel the visit.

The AP reports:

[Culver chief of staff Patrick] Dillon said the issue was not about the election but about recovering from flooding.

“At the end of the day, it’s not about politics but about what’s best for Iowa,” Dillon said. […]

While these high-profile politicians bring attention to the disaster, they cause headaches for hard-pressed law enforcement.

For President Bush’s visit to the state today, “hundreds of law enforcement officers were diverted from flood recovery to provide security for him.” Last week, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) canceled a visit at the request of state officials.


This is a nice example of two things. Once again how alike Bush and McCain are. Notice in this how they both try to use OTHERS to make themselves look good. In this case and I am sure in many others at the expense of others.

While Obama agrees to NOT show up causing more work for those who are needed else where. Yes, Obama is not perfect but MCCain and Bush are just self indulgent puppets of evil.
