Nevertheless, Louisiana Republicans aren't about to let Obama off the hook. According to a new survey from Public Policy Polling, 29 percent of Louisiana Republicans blame President Obama for the federal government's botched response to Hurricane Katrina.
Yes, you read that right: Nearly one in three Louisiana Republicans blame Barack Obama, who had just been elected to the Senate and had yet to announce his presidential campaign.
Nor have many of Louisiana's Republicans succumbed to the lies generated by the liberal media. Because that 29 percent figure is actually slightly higher than the percentage of Louisiana Republicans who blame President Bush, who was actually, you know, president. The remaining 44 percent (the figures add up to more than 100 due to rounding) said they weren't sure who to blame.
In other words, given a choice between President Obama and President Bush, more than 70 percent of Louisiana Republicans either blamed Obama or said they weren't sure who deserved more blame.
So, our President first slipped out of the Benghasi scandal (all parties in the Embassy have been absolved of blame), then wriggled free of the scandal that involved the IRS going after Tea Party groups and progressive liberal groups in equal measure, and now, to top things off, he's trying to escape blame for Hurricane Katrina.
Thank God our nation's deep thinkers and insightful intellectuals -- e.g., those 29% Republicans -- have found a party that is fitting to their aptitudes.
