Louisiana residents say it’s time for President Obama to put down the golf clubs.
According to The Hill:
“A Louisiana newspaper is calling on President Obama to cut his vacation short and visit the state to address the devastation occurring as a result of severe flooding.
“A disaster this big begs for the personal presence of the President at ground zero,” said an editorial published in The Advocate on Thursday.
“In coming here, the President can decisively demonstrate that Louisiana’s recovery is a priority for his administration — and the United States of America.”
Obama is vacationing at his Martha’s Vineyard getaway. His vacation is scheduled to end on Sunday, but the paper called for the president to “pack his bags now.”
“The optics of Obama golfing while Louisiana residents languished in flood waters was striking,” the editorial said.”
