Obama's idea of comforting people in this crisis

Folks in Kentucky and other areas in the south, still coping with the death and devastation of  an unusual ice storm several weeks ago, suffered more destruction yesterday as powerful winds swept through the state causing more destruction.  In Oklahoma,  a hurricane roared through a few days ago, killing at least nine while also causing severe destruction in its wake.
 
And where was President Barack Hussein Obama (D) during all this?  Where were the media documenting Mother Nature's tragedies in peoples' lives?  Were they blaming President for ignoring their plight; for being indifferent to their suffering? 
 
Why no, because President Obama does appreciate the difficulties the citizens of this country face dealing with these disasters as this White House blog,   posted last night, demonstrates his concern back in Washington DC.

Digital delayed
The estimated 6 million consumers who rely on analog TV signals now have a four month reprieve.

President Obama today signed the legislation delaying the mandatory conversion from analog to digital signals from February 17 to June 12.

"During these challenging economic times, the needs of American consumers are a top priority of my administration," the President said in an official statement.

Just the reassurance the good people of Kentucky and Oklahoma need.  No wonder the media people are not complaining.
