The President’s Fortune for Flood Relief
Be sure to listen to this 49 second Allison Gaito report on federal funding for disaster relief. As if striving to outdo Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s bumbling use of metaphor, Congressman Patrick Kennedy declares:
What is more important than having the President here is having his money here.
I’m surprised the local media hasn’t made more of the news that President Obama is dipping into his private fortune to help victims of the flood. Unless, of course, Patrick meant that taxpayer dollars actually belong to the president.
