Default Re: Sex, Power, Happiness (Michelle Goldberg & Rebecca Traister)

Of the various lies that have been thrown at W, the most pernicious and slimy is that he did nothing about New Orleans. There is a big difference between being overwhelmed by a problem and apathetic to it. I have no doubt whatsoever that it would have equally stumped Obama or Clinton. The media would have covered it way differently. They would have gone on and on about how, in spite of the president's best efforts, this terrible tragedy is wreaking such havoc. A large scale flood is one of the worst types of disasters. You have a huge area where the water is too deep for vehicles but too shallow for most boats. There was also an appalling lack of local response and local preparation. None of this was Bush's fault.
