Forward Progressives — Republicans Pathetically Trying to Compare Health Care Issues With Bush Katrina Failures
I’ll have to admit, even I didn’t see this coming. Apparently the new ridiculous right-wing attack on President Obama comes by the way of comparing the issues with the website, and some Americans being forced to buy new insurance plans, to Bush’s botched response to Hurricane Katrina.
Yes, some conservatives are beginning to compare the way President Obama has handled the issues with the Affordable Care Act launch to Bush’s handling of the devastation following Katrina.
Let that sink in for a moment — they’re really saying that Obama’s “incompetency” in his handling of “Obamacare” is equally as bad as Bush’s incompetence following Hurricane Katrina.
A former Bush official said:
“There are moments in a presidency where everything is different afterward and I believe this is that moment. For us, it was Hurricane Katrina because while public support had been dropping for the war in Iraq, after Katrina, after many members of the public and every member of the Democratic Party viewed us as incompetent and it transcended to everything else we did.”
