Now isn’t this special.
Referencing his failure to head to the site of the 2005 Gulf Coast hurricane, candidate Barack Obama in 2008 skewered George Bush as “a president who only saw the people from the window of an airplane instead of down here on the ground, trying to provide comfort and aid.”
Gosh, Megyn Kelly looks good in her turquoise toga outfit.
Is it so wrong to say that? Is it not usually part of the job description for news for anchors to look great, whether male of female?
Kelly also happens to be one of the sharpest interviewers around, bringing her skills and knowledge as an attorney to bear, and she has an informal, spontaneous, yet no-nonsense demeanor that’s perfect for the format. So if I’m sexist to also say she look great, which is part of the point, then I’m sexist.
Anyway, I got, uh, distracted, and strayed off topic.
Sure, this is Obama’s Katrina, with the big difference that much of the criticism of Bush came after he failed to visit, not before. And he eventually corrected the problem, though he got himself in deeper doodee with his ‘Atta boy, Brownie comment. And at least Brownie eventually got the boot.
And Obama didn’t even bother flying over the area. Although I guess the Mexican air force might have escorted him out of the area.
I don’t know, maybe he owes someone money down there. Got to be some reason why he didn’t make the trip.
