15 months in office, and this president is the proud owner of a whole bunch of Katrinas.

From Media Matters:

  1. H1N1 flu
  1. Fort Hood shootings
  1. Kentucky Ice storms
  1. Haiti earthquake
  1. GM bankruptcy
  1. Christmas Day Underwear Bomber
  1. Housing policies in Chicago (No kidding)

And now the disaster in the Gulf.

This is bullshit with a capital B. At least 1,836 people lost their lives in Katrina and George Bush couldn't care less about a bunch of poor black people in New Orleans. This horrific image (i'm leaving space because it's really a very difficult picture) was Katrina (THOMAS DWORZAK/Time Magazine):

George Bush' stupidity and incompetence now became the standard. The Right and the MSM can't help themselves, they're just praying for Obama's Katrina and Obama's 9/11. The notion that dead people in some terrible disaster will be the only way for Republicans and their partners in the media to "redeem" Bush' presidency, is downright sick and sickening.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
