Rhetorical Question: What do you do?

So, you're greatest political fumble of all time is a little thing called "Katrina." In this debacle, your chosen man failed to get aid to people in a time of emergency and left them hungry and living in squalor. (Say what you will about local authorities dropping the ball, the public perception is the failure was all FEMA's.) This event was a flood, due to a failed levee. And this one event can easily be seen as the turning point when you lost the faith of the American people.

Now, a levee has failed in Iowa and the city is flooded. Nearly an identical situation, from a high-level. So, what do you do?

Apparently, you go for photo ops at tea parties in Europe.

Sigh. Can someone please call up the President and tell him unless he comes home immediately to tour the area, he has extinguished ANY hope for the Republican party to even maintain its numbers in the fall?

The biggest issue about Katrina fumble is that it looked like it was a racial issue - or at least it was made to look like it was racial. Iowa is basically white, so Al Sharpton, Kanye West and Oprah will keep their mouths shut on the issue. Because of that, most Americans will not even think about it and because of that the amount of damage done will be nominal. It's still not good, but it is what will happen.

I'd also say that the GOP may be saying, "stay away" because they don't want to be associated with him. A good idea might be for Republican senators and congressman to tour the area or speak about it or something.
