Action needed, not words


Mainstream reporters try to justify the President Obama's late, inadequate response (at Oso). He he responds with action much better to worldwide events than to issues within the US.  His concern for Oso came a month late, and it appears it was only a stop-over on his way to South Korea and Japan.

Talk is cheap. What is needed is better leadership and more funding.  A few less worldwide excursions by the Obama family could easily provide more funding for these American disasters.
