Obama, Touring Louisiana Flood Damage, Knocks Politicization of Tragedy: ‘Nobody Gives a Hoot’ | TheBlaze.com

Obama, Touring Louisiana Flood Damage, Knocks Politicization of Tragedy: ‘Nobody Gives a Hoot’ | TheBlaze.com:

"President Barack Obama toured flood-ravaged Louisiana Tuesday — and brushed off those who criticized him for not cutting his vacation short to get there sooner.

“One of the benefits of being five months short of leaving here is I don’t worry too much about politics,” Obama told reporters at a press conference in Zachary, Louisiana. “I guarantee you, nobody on this block, none of those first responders, nobody gives a hoot whether you’re a Democrat or Republican.”"

Of course, he's not worried about politics because he no longer needs their vote.  If he would have been running for re-election, you can bet his boots would have been on the ground.
