There are two lessons here:

First one is that no matter how bad we think it is, it can and sometimes does get worse

Second one is that the Democrats are better at complaining about how government is running than they are at running the government.

Why does the writer have to interject their own opinion on poll results? The poll results show what most of us already know. President Obama can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk. His prepared speaches are great, obviously written by a professional. But his normal day to day conversations are filled with hesitations, lack real feeleings or facts. President Obama has one goal, to convert our once great Nation into a Socialist failure. He has already doubled the national Debt, and he isn't over yet.
The writer, after describing teh results that people don't feel that Obama has reacted correctly to the Gulf spill and that President Bush did a much better job in handling Katrina aftermath. Bush was blasted in the media for his failure to respond quickly enough after katrina because Federal Relief Forces took a few days to hit the ground. Obama took over a month to react to the Gulf spill and then it was too little too late.
So what does the writter of article say, well many of the worst hit in Katrina haven't returned to LA after Katrina. Does that mean they were mostly Blacks and would have automatically favored Obama's lack of action? No, that was a racial statement, not based on any facts, just the writer trying to blame Bush over Obama.
Facts don't lie, but liars distort the truth.

I'm a Republican but Bush wasn't my absolute favorite Rep. of all time. picking between Bush and Obama that's like picking how to die.
While I liked Bush approach on terrorism I didn't like how he handled the economy. plus relations with other countries were "breaking down"
Obama- Obamacare a mess but MAYBE i said MAYBE relations with other countries are coming around.

throttle jockey are you kidding?...relations with other countries are coming around...

Yeah, dude, relations with DICTATOR countries may just be coming around, not seeing how that is a good thing for America - they have a teensy problem with truth, honor, human rights, etc. Of course they are going to talk nice, talk is talk. Did you ever see the movie War of the Worlds? The aliens emerge from the ship and the Pastor walks up, extending his hand blathering some crap about being friends, because everyone knows if you are nice to someone, of course they'll be nice back. The aliens were so happy to have this new friend, they completely changed their plan to take over Earth, and they all went back to his house for dinner, right? No...he was zapped to ash.

You might want to check newspapers from sources other than the U.S., some of those 'other countries' like Great Britain and Germany are getting a little uneasy about who Obama is extending his hand to, the runaway spending that could adversely affect the stability of their currency, and scratching their heads over our regressive direction, especially regarding health care just to name a few.

Obama went golfing many days during the spill and he didn't even show up in Louisana for two months. Of course, LA, TX and MS went for McCain and the man child probably had his nose out of joint with those states.

How quickly time fades memories!

Bush's handling of Katrina was incompetent. He removed spending items from several budget proposals that would have helped to reinforce the levies in New Orleans. Federal response for aid to the New Orleans area was slow.

While I am no fan of obammy, records for the well that blew out show that an inspection of the failed valve at the bottom of the ocean DID NOT take place as scheduled five years ago. Using simple math, the inspection should have been done in 2005. Hmmm, obammy was not yet president, thus shrubbie shares some blame for the oil spill.

This was a poor question to put to poll, as the poll was taken in New Orleans, and many residents of New Orleans in September 2005 have not returned to New Orleans, so a complete sampling of New Orleans residents was not possible.

My thought is that both presidents were equally poor in their response and reaction to the disasters.'I hear that you are doing a bang up job here, Brownie!'

bush denied it, but video recordings of meetings in the days before the hurricane hit, show bush was advised that the levy walls would likely fail. And he did little to start the federal air machine. Hurricane experts knew that Katrina was a really big storm.

Many factors in the failures in the oil disaster have a direct lineage to the bush administration's 'hands-off' approach to big business. If he left big business alone, big business would be more likely to make generous contributions to the republican party.

BP was pinched to get the oil well plugged, so I believe that BP made several efforts to plug the well that they probably realized would not work, thus delaying implementing the fix that finally worked. If BP had been allowed to pursue that repair to begin with, the well may have been plugged more quickly. I believe that big oil and BP know more about undersea oil drilling, and their equipment, than does the federal government. However, I do not forgive BP at all for the failures on the oil rig. It was BP who took the financial and procedural shortcuts that led to the failure of the drilling rig. The obammy admininstration shares some of that blame. I do believe that BP is fully responsible to coastal residents for their financial losses.

The environmental damage will take years, if ever, to repair and overcome.

And these are the same idiots who will vote for him again simply because he's black.

Oops, I forgot that it's all Bush's fault and Obama needs more time.
