On the federal government's decision to reject Texas requests for disaster relief after enormous losses from wildfires [Previously-broadcast material].
To date the fires have blackened more than two million acres, destroyed more than four hundred homes, and caused more than $20 million dollars in agricultural losses, including livestock deaths... don't try to tell me this isn't political. In this day and age the right question is Why in the world should the federal government help Texas? It's a red state. Why should they help Texas? ... Why should Obama help Texas? He knows they're not going to vote for him. That's the way of the world these days.
