ScienceOrMagic, You asked, "Months ago? How do you even criticize this? Damned if you do, damned if you don't." Let's see .... Hurricane Katrina .... Bush offers help before storm hits .... Louisiana governor and Mayor of New Orleans both refuse .... 1. Bush is blamed for the storm (you know, global climate change and all that). 2. Bush is blamed for the response (even though he offered help and it was refused). 3. Bush is blamed for African-Americans suffering (even though the 17th Street Canal which broke flooded the mostly white sections of the city). 4. Bush is blamed for anything and everything related to Katrina. Turnabout is fair play. Your idiotic side of the aisle started this. How's that, Science?

Nice post.
Remember that exceptional idiotic response from Senator Mary Landrau. She was asked why "Schoolbus" Negin failed to use the buses to evacuate before the storm hit.

She amazingly blurted the asinine "Well they were under water". (Yea honey, but not until AFTER the storm hit.)

Now we learn that in the months before Hurricane Sandy, FEMA sold off temporary shelters at bargain basement prices.  Now, in Sandy's wake, FEMA will purchase new shelters -- although the "old" ones had only been used once, if at all -- presumably at top dollar.  Your tax dollars at work . . .

It's hard to understand how President Bush was somehow responsible for every mistake and inefficiency associated with Hurricane Katrina, while somehow, all the Sandy-related disasters -- many still ongoing more than two weeks later -- have nothing to do with President Obama.
