Today marks the five-year anniversary of the devastating Hurricane Katrina. President Bush handled the crisis poorly and was maligned by the American Pravda, while Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin were given a free pass for their negiligence in evacuating people from the city prior to the category 5 hurricane. Bush never recovered from the hit-job on Katrina.
Nevertheless, it is interesting to note that Louisianans in a recent poll trust Bush over Obama in dealing with a crisis by a 21% margin. Yes, Louisiana is a red state, but 21%? That is, frankly, quite shocking.
I get the feeling that the average American did not hear about the real outrage and frustration directed against Obama by Gulf Coast residents in the recent disastrous oil spill. These folk down in the Gulf Coast recognize incompetence when they see it, and they don't particularly appreciate the oil drilling moratorium which cost them their livelihood.
Apparently, the American Pravda was once again covering for their beloved socialist/Marxist president.
Read from Gateway Pundit:
Louisiana Voters Pick Bush Over Obama in a Crisis – 54% to 33%
"More Louisiana voters picked Bush over Obama in a crisis.
Bluegrass Pundit reported:
'Louisiana has face two major crisis in recent years. The first was hurricane Katrina handled by former President Bush. The second was the Gulf oil spill handled by current President Obama. A PPP poll asked likely voters who they think is better at handling crisis, Obama or Bush. 54% chose President Bush. Only 33% picked President Obama.'
It wasn’t even close."
