Yeah, this seems embarrassing for the right:
A significant chunk of Louisiana Republicans evidently believe that President Barack Obama is to blame for the poor response to the hurricane that ravaged their state more than three years before he took office.The wording of the question, asked of 274 Louisiana Republicans:
The latest survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, provided exclusively to TPM, showed an eye-popping divide among Republicans in the Bayou State when it comes to accountability for the government's post-Katrina blunders.
Twenty-eight percent said they think former President George W. Bush, who was in office at the time, was more responsible for the poor federal response while 29 percent said Obama, who was still a freshman U.S. Senator when the storm battered the Gulf Coast in 2005, was more responsible. Nearly half of Louisiana Republicans — 44 percent — said they aren't sure who to blame....
Who do you think was more responsible for the poor response to Hurricane Katrina: George W. Bush or Barack Obama?So it's not really ambiguous or misleading.
But I predict that right-wingers will defend these Republican poll respondents. They'll tell us that Obama really is more responsible than Bush for the response to Katrina.
Why? Because the people who've suffered the most post-Katrina are African-Americans -- and Obama, being a Democrat, has cruelly helped keep African-Americans on the Democrat plantation, where they're stuck on public assistance because the Democrat Party just wants to have the maximum number of people possible dependent on government. It's all part of the Democrat Party's sinister plan for gaining permanent control of American politics by sapping the entire nation's will to succeed.
Do you get it now?
