When Hurricane Katrina hit the unprepared city of New Orleans the Democrats had a field day in blaming then President George W. Bush - despite the fact that the Mayor of New Orleans was a Democrat (since jailed for corruption, I might add) and the Governor of Louisiana was a Democrat as well. Katrina was one of the things that hurt Bush's approval rating, because he was blamed for slow action (despite being asked by the local authorities to not act immediately) and the media called him a racist. A Katrina only comes once in a lifetime.
Or does it? Hurricane Harvey is as destructive and the Democrats are gearing up to bludgeon the President. Leftists work this way; they rarely come up with new tricks. Of course, the Republicans have never figured out how to deal with these old tricks.
According to an article in Heavy:
"Furthermore, Houston residents were given mixed messages before the storm struck. The Republican governor suggested evacuation, but the Democratic mayor and a Republican judge overseeing the city’s emergency operations suggested otherwise and didn’t order it, urging people to stay put instead. The decision was complicated, others say, by past evacuations that caused problems of their own and by the sheer population size of the city. However, it was no surprise that Houston might flood. CNN noted that Houston "is known for its susceptibility for flooding because of its flatness.”
Hurricane Harvey was an unparalleled challenge for Texas. The National Weather Service said the storm was unprecedented and catastrophic. At least five people have died (two in Houston flooding), more than 1,000 were rescued, and some 911 calls went unanswered. The rain was still coming. Dr. Greg Postel, hurricane specialist for The Weather Channel, said the Houston floods "could be the worst flooding disaster in U.S. history.”
Notice how they drag some minor Republican official into this; they can't let the Democrats take the blame for failing the public.
But unprecedented? Apparently the National Weather Service (who is undoubtedly gearing up the "global warming" canard) do not remember the hurricane of 1900 which completely demolished the city of Galveston. It was every bit as bad as Harvey.
A final thought; the lesbian Mayor of Houston once demanded that pastors turn over copies of their sermons to government censors. Hmmm. Maybe if she hadn't stopped the religious leaders from praying for the city disaster would not have so overtaken it.
