    I have never thought of you as a Trump supporter, even if you defend Trump, I don’t see you as one of the people who insists the emperor has been wearing clothes the whole time.

    It’s true that Houston was domestic, in fact that!s one of the reason Haiti was brought into the conversation. Because it’s easy tos ay, that a disaster you can drive to is easier to mount a response to, compared one you have to sail or fly to.

    But how is it Obama could respond more effectively to assist a sovereign nation overnight than Trump could for American citizens? I know with this presidency, we’re not supposed to extrapolate any policy position from what he says or does, but his behavior in the aftermath, along with the comparably light response, sure made it seem reasonable that he didn’t consider Puerto Rico’s recovery a high priority.

    And as much as anyone could criticize Bush, at least he acted like he gave a shit in the aftermath of Katrina.

    JFC you are hopeless. Trump is insulted from criticism? He's the most criticized president ever.

    Your posts are probably great on the far left boards but I hope you're never in charge of swaying anyone in the middle to your side. Wild exaggerations really aren't the best way to do that.
    2014=2009, 2015=2010?

    Being that I am in the disaster response business I can tell you that many things were not as they seemed in PR. I have many friends and colleagues involved in PR and the Texas coast. Matter of fact, I have a former project manger and operations manager in PR now.

    Since I have responded to many disasters like Katrina, Ike, Harvey, disasters all across the country and local disasters, I can affirmatively confirm that towns doesn't know what he's talking about.

    The public relations part of these things is such a small part of how things actually go down. A president has so very little to do with any of this. If you haven't figured these things out through planning many years in advance you are way too late to effect the situation.

    Well shit. I asked for wwhat he has failed at as President and it has had an adverse on the country and yo give me a litany of business problems that a lot of big businesses face. Get focused on my question and deal with his Presidency. His accomplishments so far have had a positive effect so far and if and when they unravel we will all be all be dissatisfied.
