    Polls show Louisianians disappointed with Jindal, blame Obama for post-Katrina response | NOLA.com

    In answer to the question, "Who do you think was more responsible for the poor response to Hurricane Katrina: George W. Bush or Barack Obama?," 29 percent of a pool of Republican primary voters in Louisiana blamed Obama, who took office in 2009, and 28 percent blamed Bush, whose term lasted through 2008. Hurricane Katrina hit on Aug. 29, 2005.
    WOW. That's not helping the reputation that Republicans have no problem blaming Democrats for things before their time. Democrat may come up with plenty of frivolous claims about the GOP, but at least they kept them time relevant.

    That's what I figured, that they're just ripping off of that poll.

    They couldn't make up their mind if Bush or Obama bore more responsibility for the response to Katrina.
    There was some question there in their minds about the matter.

    I blame the ubiquity of the drive-through frozen booze shacks.

    I may be wrong.

    We should ask the same people who put the first satellite in space, the US or the USSR and see what they say. I'd like to get a basic benchmark of their capacity to know simple historical facts. Or which President came earlier in our history: Madison or Eisenhower. If there's still a huge "unsure" is says something is very wrong with the state. 82% reporting as "Conservative" (whatever that means).

    They couldn't make up their mind if Bush or Obama bore more responsibility for the response to Katrina.

    Wait what? Frozen Booze Shacks? Now I'm interested. Is that like a slushy with booze?

    The only person really responsible for that colossal failure was Mayor Nagan. It was his responsibility as mayor to properly inform and evacuate his citizens, and he ****ed up big time, making his problem everyone else's problem. With such short notice, wtf did people expect? That the federal government would be magically prepared for such a huge mess to be dumped on their lap?
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Surprised to see less Conservatives blaming Obama, because you know, everything that has happened since 2000 IS all Obama's fault.

    Everything bad that has happened since Adam and Eve were evicted from the Garden of Eden is either Clinton or Obama's fault. And even then, the fall of man might be too. Clearly, you need to get with the program.

    Re: Hurricane Katrina: Who was more responsible for the poor response?

    .....a stupid poll based on an equally stupid poll.


    the whole moral to this stupid story is .... people are easily tricked .. and they hold political biases

    groundbreaking stuff.



    the real answer is ... Mayor Nagin... he's an utter buffoon who got people killed with his incredible incompetence..... then the governor takes the next place in line on the shame list..

    there's a ton of decent folk in between " it's all Bush's fault" and " it's all Obama's fault"....

    on a positive note...the ignorant fringes who keep those narratives going will die someday,
