God Save The Republicans

A new Public Policy Polling survey released on Wednesday revealed that 29 percent of Louisiana Republicans said Obama was responsible for the hurricane Katrina response, although the incident happened three years before he took office. The memo which was provided to Talking Points further stated that 28 percent blamed George W. Bush, and 44 percent Louisiana Republicans had no idea who to blame.

The storm that caused 1,833 deaths and damaged an estimated $81 billion in property happened in the early part of Bush’s 2nd term. He was in vacation in Texas as when the hurricane hit the Gulf Coast, and he continued to stay in his ranch. A photo of Bush looking out the window of Air Force One at the wreckage was so insensitive that in a 2010 interview Bush himself acknowledged that the photo was a “huge mistake.” The pathetic government response had raised so much commotion at that time that it was all over the media for a considerable time. Bush's approval ratings tanked after the disaster, and his administration was accused of playing race card. Yet, 29 percent of the Louisiana Republicans think that Obama was to blame.

God save the Republicans!
