Sunday, during the Fox New Sunday panel discussion, Obama broke in for a live nationwide emergency-awareness announcement about Hurricane Sandy. We’ve been hearing about the storm nonstop for days on every single TV and radio station, but our president wants to reassure the nation that he and emergency responders are prepared. Follow evacuation orders, he urges in his best comforting baritone. Get ready! The government is standing by to help. What a true leader. He’s the go-to president we need in a national emergency.
If you need a reminder to buy bottled water and tape the widows before a hurricane, Obama is your man. If you’re running a machine gun, soon to be covered in your own blood, on the roof of a building under fire in Libya at 3 a.m., if you’ve called three times over a period of almost seven hours for air cover that is within a couple of hours away (or, as we might learn, in the armed drone directly above) — well, you’re on your own. The president will get back to you.
