But presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama got even more carried away.
In a fundraiser tonight in Richmond, VA, Obama stated:
In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died - an entire town destroyed10,000? 12 people were killed by the tornado in Greensburg. There has never been a disaster in the history of the United States in which 10,000 people were killed. The largest loss of life occurred in 1900 when Galveston, Texas was destroyed by a hurricane and an estimated 6,000 to 8,000 people died. I'm sure the Democrats would love to pin that on Bush too if that could.
Obama's statments come on the heels of his recent comparison of the Virginia Tech massacre with Don Imus and outsourcing.
Reminds me of the e-mail joke getting sent around these days:
Chelsea Clinton asked a soldier about his fears. He said there were only 3 things he was afraid of:
Osama,Obama and Yo Mama.
