No-Class Obama At White House Website

I guess I’ve been spoiled in expecting The White House website to be an accurate and civil presentation of content. The website now isn’t much different from other left-wing websites. He did win the election. To continue to bring up his predecessor in the way that he does shows that this president is not going to stop campaigning, and doesn’t have the class to show a modicum of respect for his predecessor.

For example, under the Additional Issues page titled Katrina, this is what follows:

President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.

President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration’s “unconscionable ineptitude” in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips to the region. He worked with members of the Congressional Black Caucus to introduce legislation to address the immediate income, employment, business, and housing needs of Gulf Coast communities.

President Barack Obama will partner with the people of the Gulf Coast to rebuild now, stronger than ever.

The Katrina affected people want to know what you are going to do for them. Could you answer that without rewinding a few years? I expect more from my president. Behaving like an adult would be a good start.

UPDATE 03/08/09: The website has been revised. Don’t know when it happened, but it finally did happen. They still talk about the past, with nothing substantive as to what the administration is going to do for or about Katrina victims beyond the unchanged last line.

  1. It’s unanimous so far. It is not presidential, not appropriate.

    And when you consider that this was reported ten days ago in Politico. I didn’t see that report.I found it myself last night when I went to check out the new White House website.

    Isn’t 10 days long enough for someone to re-do that page? It’s not that hard. I did it in about 15 seconds. Cutting out the crap, this is what is left of the Obama policies to help New Orleans and its people.

    ‘President Barack Obama will partner with the people of the Gulf Coast to rebuild now, stronger than ever.’

  2. What goes around comes around. O should stop this.

    Is is campaigning.

    I hope we do not have to look forward to every description of what he accomplishes to include a slam at the former president. If this is his form he is going to need to provide history of all former presidents

    …I have enjoyed working in the oval office and cannot help but think about the history and the dedication to work that has been accomplished in this office ……except for one former president who used the office as his playground.

    Then what?
