I recall during Katrina, the Democrats blamed GWB and conservatives for the suffering and looting in New Orleans! Where is Obama? Where are Sean Penn and Danny Glover on this? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Why don’t we hear them blaming Obama? Its because they are all hypocrites, that’s why!

@mountain man
People did not blame GWB was blamed for his slow response to the disaster which did end up leading to the chaos we all witnessed but nice attempt at revisionist history. The reason people (other then you) are not blaming Obama for a slow response is because he was actually proactive and started the wheels in motion before the storm hit and has moved quickly to muster.

Not so Tolstoy. I recall liberal leaders in New Orleans saying GWB weakened the levees so water would flood New Orleans. Bush naturally expected LOCAL authorities to respond first, which is proper protocol. The Karina victims in any other city did not wait for Bush to arrive; they got busy and cleaned up themselves. That’s the difference between liberals and conservatives; liberals sit on their backsides totally dependent on the government and conservatives take care of themselves!
