Where Is The Leftie Outrage Now?

Bob Parks of Black & Right writes:

I'm sure we all remember the pummeling President George W. Bush received over the federal response to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It was ugly. Even Barack Obama bashed President Bush on the subject. One would think President Obama's stimulus plan would pour money into New Orleans' levees in need.

Think again, and no Democrat is saying anything about it….

The economic stimulus signed by President Barack Obama will spread billions of dollars across the country to spruce up aging roads and bridges. But there's not a dime specifically dedicated to fixing leftover damage from Hurricane Katrina.And there's no outrage about it.

Democrats who routinely criticized President George W. Bush for not sending more money to the Gulf Coast appear to be giving Obama the benefit of the doubt in his first major spending initiative.

And why are we surprised.

We are not surprised Mr. Parks because PSBO can do no wrong. He walks on water and his flatulence smells like "fresh-baked cookies and lime skittles" (h/t to brotherkomrade for that line)

Might be because almost $4 billion in post Katrina aid already out there hasn't been spent.

Of course Uncle Bob didn't mention that part.

Since when did facts stop you lefties from bellowing? Besides,since the salt marsh rats in San Franciso are getting 30 million, I would think that the left would be cool with throwing more money to New

NOLA is a mess that no amount of money will solve.
The admin. was smart on this one.

Katrina said...

There is no outrage because Obama can do no wrong. He can do that exact things Bush did and he will get applauded.

It's classic hypocrisy that you would expect from most liberals.

The facts be damned.

"Massa Bush wuz so good to us and we don't lak dat uppity negro Obama."

Soem of ya'll belong on the set of "Gone With the Wind".

Excellent and interesting point! You'd think among all the "stimulus" and pork in these bills, that some of it would go to New Orleans. . .

I'm really enjoying your blog.
