Caught this on Drudge last night:
Let me start by saying that I don’t blame President Obama for the problems plaguing the Big Apple in the aftermath of Sandy. But, bear in mind, how quick the legacy media were, seven years ago, to blame George W. Bush for the problems plaguing the Big Easy in the aftermath of Katrina.
We heard all sorts of horror stories, most of them untrue, about the goings-on at the Superdome, most supposedly Bush’s fault. So, why is Drudge the only one linking the desperate situation in parts of Manhattan to the president?
And when Katrina hit, the city most impacted was governed by a Democratic Mayor, the state by a Democratic Governor.
When Sandy hit, New York had a Mayor who would endorse Obama, the state has a Democratic Governor.
Over at the American Thinker, J. James Estrada contends that the electrical outages might not have happened had congressional Democrats not blocked a Bush administration plan to upgrade the nation’s electrical grid. (Via our reader Former Left-Leaning Lesbian.)
