Obama & Katrina vs. Joplin & Midwest Tornadoes

On May 22, 2011, shortly after tornadoes ripped through Joplin Missouri [MO] and other parts of the Midwest, President Obama departed on a week-long trip to Europe. While the victims of the storms were trying to recover from the terrible disaster, the President had more pressing needs to tend to in Europe - like searching for his Irish roots and finding an authentic Irish pub that serves genuine Guinness ale. [The President guzzled down a pint of Guinness ale, but only after he received verification that the drink was Perfect - the Real Thing.]

Finally, after returning from his week-long trip to Europe, the President spoke at a memorial service in Joplin for the victims of the tornado [over 100 people died, more than 900 people were injured and 29 - 40 people are still unaccounted for]. At the memorial service, the President affirmed his "Love" for Joplin. He didn't need to declare his "Love" for Ireland and for Guiness beer, as [unlike Joplin] that was already known to all.....

Full details in the video below.

City officials estimate that about 8,000 houses and apartment buildings were destroyed by the tornado. That means thousands of Joplin residents were left homeless. And yet, despite all the victims, the injured and the homeless, President Obama departed on his trip to Europe and returned home a full week after the tornado had struck. And, of course, not a peep from the mainstream media.

Question: Would the mainstream media have remained silent if George W. Bush had acted in such fashion?

Answer: Of course not.
