Obama must take blame for Tornado scandal

Yes, the president deserves the blame.

Of course, it's very unlikely he ordered Sunday's tornadoes to rip through five conservative states. And his sympathy now - however convenient - is appreciated. But when the weather systems he views as dangerous began to form across Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, and Arkansas, what did he do? Nothing.

We can't say what he would have done if the tornadoes tore across liberal states heavily populated with African Americans, gays, or teachers, but we all know that those communities are obviously more protected.

The fact is that those tornadoes killed two and left more than 20 injured. The National Weather Service has said that additional severe storms are likely. What has Obama done to change our very moist atmosphere? Nothing.

And this is just the latest in a recent string of scandals. The President wants us to live in a world of fear where we can be closely looked at when filing taxes and killed during severe weather.

It's still too early to know how much Obama was involved in Sunday's tornadoes. But the fact remains: the White House has too often come to accept American-dividing weather instead of taking the appropriate actions necessary to change the way weather works.
