Take a wild guess who Republicans in Louisiana blame more than President Bush for the government response after Katrina in 2005. Hint, it rhymes with Osama:
TPM — 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.
Hurricane, Katrina you say? Never heard of it …
There comes a point when you realize conservatives are just saying anything they can think of to make liberals laugh at them. Which is certainly one way of getting noticed, it’s just not a very good way to be taken seriously. But I’m not sure if they can make that distinction anymore.
Then again, maybe it’s a just a GOP/LA centric race thing:
The latest survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, provided exclusively to TPM, showed (Governor) Jindal with an approval rating of only 28 percent. Fifty-nine percent of Louisiana voters said they disapprove of the job he is doing. According to PPP, those numbers make Jindal the least popular Republican governor in the country.
