After the devastating tornado we saw hit Joplin Missouri this week with who knows how many more coming before the week is over, who does Fox's Neil Cavuto think is the person to bring in to discuss President Obama's response to the disaster? I kid you not, none other than Mr. Heck-of-a-Job Brownie, Michael Brown.

And of course Brown was critical of President Obama spending the last couple of days over in Ireland and England instead of coming home for a photo-op like we saw Bush give after Hurricane Katrina.

I hate to break it to them, but I think the last thing any of those people are worried about is whether the President swooped right in there to shake some hands and have his picture taken. What they care about is whether there's a prompt response and how quickly the disaster relief is getting to them.

I would imagine they'd also be a lot more concerned about the remarks from Eric Cantor who decided to do some more hostage taking with their disaster relief, but of course that subject didn't come up during the course of their conversation.

They seem pretty desperate to paint President Obama as acting just like Bush did after Katrina. When someone tells me he has to be shown a DVD in Air Force One to even realize what the news coverage was on the disasters days later because they were afraid of disturbing him on his vacation like they did Bush, then tell me all things are equal.

Can you help us out?
