Invisible Obama? Romney visits Isaac-ravaged Louisiana; POTUS in Texas
Is President Obama still trying to avoid Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal? Evidently he’s aware there was a devastating hurricane this week, but visiting the storm-torn areas doesn’t seem to be on his list of priorities.
Pres Obama returns to campaign events tomorrow with a 3-day trip back to swing states Iowa, Colorado and Ohio.

Mitt Romney altered his campaign plans so he could visit New Orleans today after Hurricane Issac pounded the area.
Romney is heading to New Orleans this morning to meet with Gov Jindal, other officials, and will tour the storm area @carlcameron reports

Meanwhile, President Obama will be in El Paso, Texas.
Mitt's going to hurricane ravaged areas. Obama heading to Texas. Has to be a fundraiser or golf.

Actually, it’s not an official campaign trip. He’s visiting Fort Bliss to mark the two-year anniversary of the end of American combat operations in Iraq.
Tomorrow: Pres Obama visits Fort Bliss, Texas to meet with troops/military families. Marks anniversary of end of US combat mission in Iraq.

Unbelievable? Or typical?
Romney is going to New Orleans, Obama is not. It's not hard to figure out who the leader is between these two, folks.

It’s a tale of two candidates.
Romney cancelled his campaign stops to head to New Orleans… Obama blogs on Reddit and heads to Texas…

After 4 years of trashing Texas, Obama is visiting there while Mitt is acting presidential visiting flood victims. Obamagottago America!

But imagine, just imagine, if his initials were G.W.B.
President Obama will get to Louisiana … on Monday. You know, after a weekend of campaigning.

Leading from behind. RT @pfeiffer44: President Obama will head to Louisiana on Monday to visit damage from Hurricane Isaac.

Romney just forced Obama to change his schedule and go to Louisiana. Always on offense…

Seriously: Mitt Romney is dragging Obama to Louisiana by his ear. Awesome.
