No, Republicans, The Louisiana Flood is not Obamas Katrina

The problem with George W. Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina wasn’t just the bad optics; it was that his actual response was consistent with those optics.

Over the course of Barack Obamas presidency, Republicans have made a valiant effort to label certain news events Obamas Katrina in an attempt to sink his presidency the way Hurricane Katrina severely damaged George W. Bushs.

.

From the BP oil spill to Healthcare.govs initial website glitches, right-wing politicians and media figures have quite commendably tried to paint every setback of the past eight years with this brush.

.

Each time, theyve overplayed their hand and looked silly.

.

Now, as Louisiana recovers from a devastating flood, the Obamas Katrina frenzy from Republicans is once again in full swing. According to them, its the height of hypocrisy that liberals hammered Bush for his response to Katrina while giving Obama a pass for his so-called terrible response to the Louisiana flooding.

.

Once again, theyre overplaying their hand and looking silly.

.

The problem with George W. Bushs response to Hurricane Katrina wasnt just the bad optics; it was that his actual response was consistent with those optics. It wasnt that Bush didnt land in New Orleans and immediately tour the devastation area; it was that his federal government took an unacceptable amount of time to provide resources like food, water, and shelter to thousands of stranded people in New Orleans.

.

During Obamas presidency, this type of failure to respond to a natural disaster has never happened. The aftermath of the Louisiana flooding is no exception.

.

As Stephanie Grace of The Advocate (Louisianas largest daily newspaper) wrote last Friday:

.

[Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards] and his allies stressed Thursday that theyve been in daily communication with White House officials. FEMA administrator Craig Fugate, an emergency response specialist who before joining the Obama administration oversaw Floridas disaster responses, has been here. So has Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson. President Barack Obama started issuing disaster declarations quickly, which frees up federal resources and gets the ball rolling on longer term needs. Inspectors are on the ground. Its a miserable time for the many thousands affected, but a faulty response isnt making it more miserable.

.

In short, as far as the federal government goes, Grace added, this is not Katrina.

.

Republicans can continue to accuse President Obama of a failed response, but they do so without facts on their side.
