Obama's Katrina Moment?

Some say you can see it on the following YouTube clip. I don't agree.

For one thing, MSM was going after President Bush, blaming him for everything that was wrong in the rescue and relief responses.

MSM kept reporting things that were demonstrably false. Remember the thousands supposedly dead in the Superdome?

With President Obama it's different.

How often have you heard that in his last year as Senator, Obama and Chris Dodd each received more A. I. G. money than any other Senator? Has even one MSM reporter asked whether Obama plans to return the money A. I. G. gave him?

With a hat tip to AC, here's the clip.

I have always wondered why Bush collapsed under the leftist criticism after Katrina. The first responders--City of New Orleans, the Parishes, Louisiana State agencies--did nothing to respond to the situation, so they should have been criticized. Also, under the protocols, FEMA can't enter a sovereign state unless the state has asked for federal assistance. Louisiana didn't ask for help until the s**t had already hit the fan and been spread all over the delta. I heard damn little criticism of municipal or state authorities--only Bush, and he took it.
