While President Obama was in New Orleans yesterday for the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the President couldn’t resist yet another chance to blame George W. Bush:
"We came to realize that what started out as a natural disaster became a man-made disaster, a failure of government to look after its own citizens."
What a sad thing to say. Is President Obama really so desperate to prove his presidency a success that he has to keep attacking his predecessor seven years after he beat him?
Should a president whose administration:
- Couldn’t build a proper healthcare website in 3½ years
- Turned the Animas River yellow
- Appears to be blocking an investigation by one of its own Inspector Generals into a security breach involving records of almost 22 million current and federal workers
- Doesn’t seem to be properly screening the people into whose custody it is placing thousands of illegal immigrant children
- Whose VA was, and may still be, doing a worse job in caring for our veterans than its predecessor
- And more and more
really be criticizing his predecessor for failures of government? Maybe instead of worrying about what his predecessor did wrong, he should be spending more time getting his administration to do things right.
