Just last month the U.S. sent two Air force cargo planes to help Mexico battle back wildfires in the northern part of it's country, fires that burned 386 square miles. It's a move that West Texas Congressman Francisco Canseco (R-Fort Stockton) thinks is a hypocritical one by the Obama administration as Texas has requested the same sort of federal aid but has been denied it.

"386 square miles pales with the 2.5 million acres of land that have been burned and scorched beyond recognition," says Canseco.

And Former FEMA Director Michael Brown thinks that a "snub" like this reeks of politics as he believes Texas deserves a similar response from the federal government.

"I think what's going on is we see the Chicago style politics. I'm amazed that he's put FEMA in this awkward position of not allowing federal assistance," says Brown.

According to the Obama Administration however federal assistance has been flowing to Texas by way of grant money, of which several counties are in the process of applying for.

So far Texas has spent an estimated 70 million dollars combating the states wildfires.

That's because the Mexicans vote for him and the Texans don't.

Asswhole.

I would love to see Gov Perry get into the Presidential race just to see him blister Obama's ass.

Incredible. The level of childishness being displayed by this administration never ceases to amaze me.

Makes you wonder what he's going to do in the way of turning a blind eye when Florida gets hit with another big Hurricane.

He loses the election if he does not win FL. Heaven help us if it hits LA, MS, AL or TX.
