"When the people of New Orleans and Gulf Coast extended their hand for help, help was not there. When people looked up from the rooftops, for too long they saw an empty sky. When the winds blew and the flood waters came, we learned for all of our wealth and our power, something wasn’t right with America. We can talk about what happened for a few days in 2005, and we should. We can talk about levies that couldn’t hold, about a FEMA that seem not just incompetent but paralyzed and powerless, about a president who only saw the people from a window on an airplane instead of down here on the ground, trying to provide comfort and aid. We can talk about a trust that was broken, the promise that our government would be prepared, will protect us, and will respond in a catastrophe." - Obama's criticism of Bush on Hurricane Katrina

I assume you are trying and failing to suggest that the situations are in any way comparable?

You are right, it wasn't comparable. 1 president was at least flying over it while the other was just golfing.

That's number 6, I think? You people are desperate if this is what you're riding on.

How is Obama doing what the governor of Louisiana asked him to do "hypocritical?"

Why would I have to admit anything of the sort? Are you under the false impression that the problems people had with the Katrina response dealt with Bush not physically being present?
