Change in plans: Obama will visit La. Monday

Quote:
President Obama will visit Louisiana after all.

Obama campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki told POLITICO earlier Friday that the president had no plans yet to visit the Gulf state and review damage from Hurricane Isaac, even though Mitt Romney announced plans to visit Friday.

But the White House announced a few hours later that he is now planning to go there.

"On Monday, September 3rd, President Obama will travel to Louisiana to meet with local officials and view ongoing response and recovery efforts to Hurricane Isaac," the White House said in a release.

The president was en route Friday to Fort Bliss, Texas, where he planned to meet with military service members and their families on the two-year anniverary of his visit there to mark the end of the war in Iraq.

He probably had to cancel a round or two of golf to work this visit into his playtime schedule.

Romney may as well just begin being President now, he's already doing the job.

Wonder if the lds are taking up a collection cause Romney has no authority to get any thing done otherwise. Or is he going to contribute his own money to flood relief?

Wonder no more:

The Church released this statement:
“Prior to the storm, local leaders were in contact with Church members to make necessary preparations. Missionaries in the New Orleans area were moved inland as a precaution. The Church continues to monitor the situation and is prepared to respond as needed.”

That doesn't really tell me anything. Missionaries moved inland. That is sensible. Church monitors situation and is prepared to respond as needed..to..other victims? missionaries?
and i assume a lot of churches have similar statements. do they have the equipment for a catastrophe? chippers, water trucks, temporary housing...

Yes they do actually. Members volunteer equipment, time, fuel, food and clothing. It is then sent to the affected area. There's a reason Joplin never became NO but you won't hear that from the media.
