Biden in Atlanta on Friday for flood briefing

Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Georgia on Friday to brief state and local leaders on federal response to this week’s devastating floods.

Biden will also meet witih families affected by the floods, the White House announced. More detailis are to be released later Thursday.

Biden’s visit comes the day after President Barack Obama declared a federal emergency in four counties impacted by the flood.

Perdue asked for more than $16 million in direct federal aid. But the presidential declaration of an emergency will also make federal loans, grants and other resources available to homeowners, residents businesses impacted by the floods, which have claimed nine lives and caused more than $250 million in damage.

More to come …

WTF, now you want his help. When Katrina hit New Orleans, how long did it take Bush to show up! You’re probably one of the people who doesn’t even live in those counties and just want to have something negative to say about the President again.

You people are interesting, it doesn’t matter what good the President does for this country you ass—– still don’t like him. Just like Former President Carter stated, racism is the biggest problem and it’s more noticeable here in the deep south where there are so many RED NECK PWT’’s live. Ask God to release all of that hatred from your hearts! Goodness I sick and tired of you people. The President can do no right in your eyes.

Stop it with the race card already. A whole lot of people were affected by the flooding.

They should be fined for NOT heeding a warning. Free will. People in GA had no warning. I guess because they work and have a higher IQ that they are suppose to help themselves.

The flooding in Georgia is all Bush’s fault. If he and the Pubs running this state would have started building the 2 extra lakes needed, that would have given somewhere for all that water to go.

Instead, it came down here and flooded our homes.

Besides, Obama has his hands full trying to un-ravel 8 years of failure. He can’t be everywhere at once. He needs time to figure out how to correct this country and get it back on the track to where we don’t have to worry about a house payment or putting gas in our cars or buying groceries.

“People sat for a WEEK” in New Orleans. Yep, they did.

Justin M

Perspective: Katrina affected a massive area, spread out over three states — thousands and thousands of square miles — killed thousands, and destroyed entire cities. The flooding here affected a few counties, killed a dozen. If the President visited every small disaster area in the US, that is all he’d be doing.

What I don’t get is why so many of you are screaming, whining for a bailout, wanting free government money handouts.. because you were too lazy or stupid to get flood insurance — sold by the federal government — that wouldn’t have cost you more than a few hundred dollars a year because you lived in an area that doesn’t usually flood. So because you didn’t pay for flood insurance, you want to get a new house for free?

I think all of you are stupid and missing the point. Obama is just a good president to all people. There is a higher power that is in charge and you all should be thankful that he is sending someone to survey the damage. President Obama is just like a pastor of a church. When a pastor can’t make it the assistant pastor alway fill his shoes(so VP Biden is doing a job that the taxpayers are paying his for and also, I think Obama and Biden is truely concern about the people in the Atlanta area. Some of you all need to pray a little more and think positively about the good job that Obama is doing for out country.

LOL

“Carroll, along with Douglas, Cobb and Paulding, have appeared to have suffered the most damage in this week’s floods. But when Gov. Sonny Perdue announced on Thursday that President Barack Obama has declared a federal disaster in four Georgia counties, it was Cherokee and not Carroll listed with the other three”.

LOL again

“But, then the White House issued a press release saying that Carroll was on the disaster list, not Cherokee. Compounding the confusion, however, Perdue communications director Bert Brantley told the AJC moments ago that the official document the governor received from the White House says Cherokee”.

ROFLMAO

“A White House spokeswoman is checking on the discrepancy, and Brantley said the governor’s office and the Georgia Emergency Management Agency is working with federal officials to try and straighten out the problem”.

That’s the democrats for you. More concerned with diversity than getting the job done right the first time!

Why???

September 24th, 2009

I just hope the people complaining are not the one’s receiving aid. Even if you aren’t, remember that you will sow what you reap including what you type. This is enough already. The President is attending the G-20 Summit meeting. Have you forgotten about that? For goodness sake, our President is dealing with the economy, healthcare, 2 wars, cleaning up prior administration trash, appointing a new Superior Court Judge, eulogizing Ted Kennedy, dealing with the right wingers/nay sayers, and everything else that isn’t publicized in less than a year. He will more than likely visit the sites but we keep this up, he may just say…good look you ole’ Republician state.

To rephrase and enlarge on the most valid comment made here:

President Bush flew over New Orleans four days after Katrina on his way back to D.C. from vacation and didn’t set foot on the ground there for another week. Does anyone else remember his infamous remark, “Good job, Brownie!” about FEMA’s totally inept response to Katrina? And where was Vice President Cheney during that time?

In contrast, Governor Purdue waited until Tuesday to request federal aid; he got it today — just two days later. Vice President Biden is coming tomorrow to see the damage, an appropriate representative to send in response as President Obama prepares for the G20 conference — a slightly more important deal. It’s possible that more Georgia counties will receive federal aid as the situation develops.

Frankly, I don’t see the problem some people are having with the administration’s response and time frame. I suggest that we keep things in perspective and recognize that our natural disaster is being responded to as quickly and reasonably as possible. Lest we forget, there is another one still going on in California.

Apparently all you idiots on this site talking about bailouts don’t realize that Federal Disaster Relief comes in the form of a low interest loan. As many left leaning dolts are saying republicans complain about government spending and entitlement programs are now asking for a handout please remember the Fed will get the money back plus interest.

This is not a handout. How interesting that the Feds should ante up money when there is a natural disaster, but not when there is an economic disaster, as happened last October?
I hope the teabaggers show up and ask for a hand up and and not a handout. Government is bad and should not get into the every day lives of citizens, especially in education, healthcare and natural disasters. This was the mantra last week.

Like Katrina, this is not a federal issue. It’s the state of Georgia’s issue. Gov. Purdue should be surveying the counties and declaring them all disaster areas after that massive flooding. 9 good hard working people dead and 250Million in damage. If you have insurance let that kick in and whatever is left push to the state. Those without flood insurance should be taken care of my the state’s insurance. F— the Federal government. Tell Biden to shove his money from where they grafted the hair that is now on his head. Obama is not puppet, he cannot make a decision on his own unless Rahm is working the teleprompter and Axelrol’s up his A–.

It doesn’t matter who’s flooding is more massive or who had the most lives lost. Its about helping those who are in need. I believe though that the south has always come through for those who were in need. Not only did we send people to work the damage of Katrina, but we also opened several locations for the victims. We also built homes to help those in need. Instead of trying to see who can get the better comment in, you should be praying for the families who lost loved ones and for those people that do not have homes. Maybe some of you could reach out and offer a helping hand or a kind word to those who really need it. For example, to the man who lost his 2 year old son because he couldn’t hold on to him. He will be devastated for the rest of his life. Also, all the other people who don’t have their wife mother, brother, friend, etc. So, put all the petty arguments aside and lets come together like we are suppose to do and offer help to the ones in need. Whether it be in the north, south, east or west.

All I can say is, this commentary is pretty shrewd, yet it’s also pretty entertaining. I just returned from a long day of meetings- one with the Lt. Governor. I wonder what VP Biden would think if his staff placed some of this conversation in front of him……..certainly a nice hearty welcome to Atlanta=)?

I believe with the political clout in this State from both the Corporate side to the Public side the Feds will be engaged. As to the timeline of response- it’s actually not too bad, though if I were impacted 1 hr after the water hit would not be soon enough!

I suppose it’s all relative! Keep your chin up.

First, as a victim of this crazy flood who lost everything – I mean everything down to the socks, I thank everyone who has prayed for us and who has a good heart. There are some who want to discuss politics, others who want to discuss race, and some who just want to say anything, but for the families that have lost everything that they have worked so hard for, it is a difficult time. Look around at your comfortable home right now, feel the coziness of your pillow, go to your computer (I’m using someone else’s righ now becuase mine is covered in dooky water) look outside at your car that you’ve paid for and imagine that in a few hours, it’s all gone, unsalvagable and your standing in your muddy driveway with just your work clothes on. People like Roger whatever and Justin M. this is not a handout for us. We worked extremely hard for everything in our home. AND all that we had, we did not acquire over night. We are not wealthy by any means. We are hardworking citizens who have invested our time and money into this government WHOMEVER IS RUNNING IT!!! We paid cash for our belongings, but we did not have “specifically” flood insurance (how many people on this blog have FLOOD insurance?? Yeah, think about that as you talk so much mess about us. And my husband and I are democrats – so all of you who want to condemn this red state south, remember that all of us down here are not like the racist ass, scared and fearful “others” that still inhabit this place. I don’t give a damn if the president is a green alien with tentacles coming out his ass, I need assistance and if it happened to you (which we all think it never will – I couldn’t imagine somethin like this hitting us, not like this) you would be asking for assistance too!

We can bicker all we want BUT Why didn’t our local and state governments WARN us that the flood was coming?? My family did NOT hear anything coming from government NOR could we find any useful information to better prepare us for WHEN it would happen and WHAT we should do once it was here!

I hear that all of the standing water in our yard and basement is BAD but no one from government told us this!! I had to search this information out.

Does ANYONE know where we can go online to get useful information on what is next? And how to protect our families from disease and other bad stuff?

Thanks all
