Let's see. By this time after the passage of Katrina, a Category 5 storm, every lingering suffering was the direct fault of President Bush and those who worked for him.

But today, after a mere Category 1 storm (albeit a slow mover that dumped a lot of water on the area) no one is blaming President Obama for anything. In fact, Mr. Powell in the article thinks that Obama will come up with a solution to their problem.

Really? Did living in a city below sea level in an area surrounded by marshes and historically hit by many hurricanes sound like a good idea in the first place? The solution is to move to higher ground! How many times do you have to touch a hot stove before you decide not to do that? How many hurricanes does it take?
