Obama to aid possible swing State MO, but neglects Red State TX

President Obama is in full campaign mode.  “There’s no doubt in my mind that Joplin will rebuild,” Obama said. “And as President I can promise you, your Country will be there with you every single step of the way.  We’re not going anywhere!”

The sidewalks were jammed with fatigued citizens waving American flags as Obama made his way into the devastation from a deadly tornado that engulfed this tiny town one week ago exactly. Only a few NObama signs were reported. Remember, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is a Democrat.

But, firefighters are still battling wildfires across Texas. About 2.8 million acres have burned in the state since November.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry-Republican, slammed the administration for failing to declare a disaster in the wildfire-damaged state.

Why is one State offered Federal aid, while the other is not?
Missouri is considered a pivotal swing state in 2012 as control of the Senate could be up for grabs.
