In 2005 we saw the total incompetence of the George W. Bush administration when facing the devastating results of Hurricane Katrina. The federal government abandoned its citizens and 1,836 Americans lost their lives because of the Bush administration's incompetence.
Fast forward five years. Today, we are faced with another huge disaster caused by a BP oil-drilling-rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. Previous to this ecological disaster, the Barack Obama administration had joined those who want to “Drill, Baby, Drill.” Like George Bush before him, the Barack Obama administration does not seem to be able to deal effectively with this huge disaster. Obama seems to be saying: “It's not my problem, it's BP's problem.” Incompetence re-visited!
