    Underfire: Obama heads to flood-hit Louisiana

    Washington (AFP) - Fresh from a two-week vacation, President Barack Obama visits flood-hit Louisiana on Tuesday, hoping to offer support to devastated communities and silence his critics.

    Obama has been lampooned for not cutting short his Martha's Vineyard holiday to visit the Gulf Coast state, where heavy rains have submerged thousands of homes.

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump visited flood-struck communities last week and goaded the golf-loving president about his absence.

    "Honestly, Obama ought to get off the golf course and get down there," Trump said.

    Barry Barry quite contrary...to leadership, competence, and patriotism. Obama as usual displays none of it.
