Obama’s Katrina? No it’s not!

During the aftermath of Katrina the government knew what to do and how to do it, they just didn't do it anything for too long. In the case of the oil it seems no one knows what to do or how to do it. That's a hell of a lot different than having ice trucks sent up north when the ice was needed in the south. That's a lot different than leaving people to drown when there were multiple ways of saving them. We knew how to rescue people after Katrina. We knew how to give people food and water. It just didn't get done. Right now we don't know anything for sure about removing god knows how many gallons of oil from the Gulf or how to stop its flow.

Hurricanes have been happening throughout history, this disaster in the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico has never happened before. To compare the two is to compare a natural disaster to a manmade disaster. This is not and will not be considered Obama’s Katrina by fair thinking people.

Perhaps not. The situations do have their differences. That doesn't mean there hasn't been a massive failure of leadership on behalf of the Obama administration.

It is not a Hurricane Katrina moment. It is more like Jimmy Carter's 444 day Iran hostage crisis that cost him the 1980 election to Ronald Reagan.

I am finding out that President Obama is a highly gifted con man. BP was his biggest Oil Company supporter. If he wants to be a one term President, so be it. Single termers are just big screw-ups anyway. He is doing his best to really upset everyone. I sure did not see this man when I voted for him in 2008.

Too bad there aren't enough fair-minded people to make a difference.
