Bush vs Obama--- Handling crisis

I gave him poor marks before he was elected.





Poll: On Disaster Clean-Ups, Louisiana Voters Give Poorer Marks to Obama Than Bush

Published June 16, 2010

Louisiana voters think President George W. Bush did a better job handling the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina than President Obama has done in the wake of the BP oil spill, according to a new poll.

The Public Policy Polling survey showed 50 percent of state voters rated Bush's performance in 2005 as better than Obama's. Just 35 percent picked Obama.

The survey by PPP, a Democratic-owned firm, comes as the president tries to inspire confidence in his administration's response to the BP oil spill. He just returned from his fourth trip to the region to survey the damage and meet with officials, and on Tuesday night delivered an address to the nation from the Oval Office. He was meeting with BP executives on Wednesday in Washington to press them to compensate Gulf residents suffering from economic damages due to the spill.

Louisiana voters by no means are happy with the way the Bush administration handled the flooding in 2005. But while the PPP poll showed just a third of voters approved of the way Bush handled Katrina, the numbers were generally worse for Obama. Sixty-two percent said they disapproved of Obama's handling of the crisis, compared with 58 percent for Bush.

The poll of 492 Louisiana voters was taken June 12-13. It had a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points.

Meanwhile, Rasmussen Reports released a new poll Wednesday showing Obama's approval rating hitting a new low -- 42 percent. The daily tracking poll puts a 20-point spread between Obama's strong approval and disapproval, 24 and 44 percent respectively.

I thought the President's remarks about doing 'whatever it takes' to handle this situation sounded eerily similar to Pres. Bush's speech after the terrorist attack on 9-11-2001.

The more things 'change' the more they stay the same.

Louisiana is a red state. Of course, we/they are going to do that.

Yeah, and besides, Kanye West is the real barometer  ;-()

Allegedly, yesterday he got $20 billion out of an oil company (that's right, a multi-national oil company at that!) which should  expedite the cleanup and hush the whiners who would be throwing juvenile tantrums :ranting: :crying: because US taxpayers are footing the bill.

That's the first public, positive action I've seen from Obama. The poll pre-dates yesterday's announcement.

It was no action, the oil company had to do something. No need to give BO any unnecccesary credit here.

You're senile. ExxonMobile "had" to do something in 1989. But what did they do? They appealed their $2 billion liability for 20 years and settled for $500 million. Big oil has been a self-regulated industry for the better part of a decade thanks to BushCo. That's conservatives--always got the back of big oil. Big oil doesn't have to do squat.

You've got no credibility here, but feel free to continue to look silly. Idiot.

"State in deep south rates Republican over Democrat".....who'd have thought it? The only people who think this is news are those who's agenda it fits to make it news. Let me guess.....FOX News gave this high priority, right?

of course the solution is nationalization of the entire oil industry. Just look at Pemex in Mexico - no corruption there!  :whistle:

Exactly, which is why I gave this "poll" no weight at all. Obama can do nothing right in their eyes.

Look at the calender, living in the past won't help you and doesn't apply here.
A novice would bring up that example, and you know it, see if something else sticks.

The oil company does not want to play around with the USA, there are many ways we can pressure them and they know it.

What in f**k's name does your idiotic comment have to do with my rebuttal to swish's inanity?


Because whenever I hear comments about "big oil" it inevitability leads to the same thing - nationalization. Do you deny that?

Here's evidence:

http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=65111
Quote
Waters responded, in part, "And guess what this liberal would be all about. This liberal will be about socializing uh, um. "

The congresswoman paused to collect her thoughts.

"Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies. "

The oil executives responded, according to Fox News, by saying they've seen this before, in Hugo Chavez's Venezuela.

Awww, let's not live in the past, right swish  :(  because if Babble shows everyone what goes on in the real world of multi-national big oil, swish is going to look like a colossal idiot to everyone else, too.

Poor swish! :crying:  Can't deal with the real world events of recent years--2010, 2009, 2008 or the more distant past 20-30 years hence--because...because...because???

Oh yeah, because the conservative meme is: don't look back!  :mad1:
Yeah, don't look back because the way conservatives have f**ked up this world is indefensible.

swish, you're the biggest f**king idiot I've conversed with you pathetic sack of crap.
