Much can be said about the legacy of President George W. Bush, both good and bad. However, this video sums up the major difference between his presidency and that of President Barack Obama.
This YouTube video highlights two disasters in Louisiana under the two difference presidencies — Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Obama’s response to the massive flooding in Louisiana in 2016:
As the video shows and as many of us likely remember, Bush went down to Louisiana and comforted those that were hurting. Regardless of what anyone may think about Bush’s policies, that kind of compassion is difficult to fake.
Bush held people in pain and tried to comfort them. His presence there mattered — it showed that even the president was there to help and wasn’t sitting on his hands in Washington.
Flash forward to 2016 and what did President Barack Obama do? Well he did what he does best, golf.
As you can see on the video, Kanye West famously claimed that Bush “doesn’t care about black people,” because of West’s and other liberals’ massive ignorance about how the federal government works.
Given the two very different responses by Obama and Bush and the resulting backlash Bush faced, it appears that of the two men, Obama is the one that doesn’t care about the people of Louisiana (since it isn’t just black people that were affected in either disaster). Apparently he sees his golf game as more important than going down to Louisiana to do his job.
