The difference is Obama's Katrina's are the worst things he's done, while Bush's Katrina was his finest hour.
 
2013-11-15 06:29:58 PM  
8 Katrinas.  That's as many as four twos.  And that's terrible.
 
2013-11-15 06:32:23 PM  
I mean, Benghazi is like 4 Katrinas on its own.

I'd go with when unemployment hit 4.4 during his second term. But to each his own.
 
2013-11-15 06:33:13 PM  
How many of those 8 besides Obamacare weren't already done by Bush? And so far Obamacare is about an overloaded website.
 
2013-11-15 06:33:47 PM  
8 Katrinas is like 6 Watergates, which is just a smidge under 11 Teapot Domes!
 
2013-11-15 06:41:04 PM  
I had 8 Katrinas at that Moscow whore house.
 
2013-11-15 06:43:19 PM  
How many Rhode Islands wide is Obama's Bush's Katrina?
 
2013-11-15 06:44:50 PM  
So to summarize the thread so far:

1 Benghazi = 4 Katrinas = 3 Watergates = 5.5 Teapot Domes

So what's a Benghazi in Iran Contras?

Is a Whitewater more or less than a Crack Tape?

If I accumulate enough "Getting slapped by co-workers for leering glances", can I trade them in for a Lewinski?

Ah yes, because there's nothing like the very edge of a huge bubble about to pop to be the benchmark of good times.

It's just like the orgasm David Caradine must've had in Thailand that night.

Strangely, perhaps, the website debacle is the most apt comparison. A government agency overseen by someone who is not qualified to handle the mandate of their department so they are woefully unprepared when the shiat hits the fan.

Just like how that time my car got robbed because I ignored my friend when he told me to lock it was exactly like 9/11.
 
2013-11-15 07:03:39 PM  
They've had to name eight, because none of them has been as bad as Katrina. They keep naming something "Obama's Katrina", then when time proves them wrong and the media moves on, they name another one. If the administration gets the healthcare.gov website even reasonably workable, people are going to forget about it by the end of next year. The GOP will never be able to get rid of the ACA, just like medicare, medicaid, food stamps, etc. That is what they really fear.
 
2013-11-15 07:05:54 PM  
Obama having eight Katrina's is Obama's Katrina.

Pretty much. One Lewinsky is roughly equal to 4 Weiner weeners.

So sext away!

All of these combined are nothing compared to the ravages of   Grover "Ma Ma, Where's My Pa" Cleveland, and he also had Free Silver and Mugwumps to boot.

Which in turn pales beside the XYZ Affair, which, because of his magical time machine, is entirely Obama's fault.
 
2013-11-15 07:12:56 PM  
Keep chuggin' on, teatards...your feeble whines nourish me.
 
2013-11-15 07:17:44 PM  
Could you just imagine what would happen if 9/11 happened under Obama? Given all these manufactures scandals, somehow I doubt he'd enjoy the 90%+ approval rating Bush had.
 
2013-11-15 07:19:48 PM  
Obama caused Katrina to help America forget that Bill Clinton caused 9/11, which, of course, was meant to obscure Jimmy Carter's masterminding of the Beirut Barracks bombing -- a false flag to cover up JFK ordering the break-in at RNC headquarters in the Watergate hotel, which hardly did the intended job of turning American hearts and minds away from Woodrow Wilson's inventing pornography.
 
2013-11-15 07:24:56 PM  
President Obama is dishonest/misleading:

Dems:  Yeah, he fkt up the rollout and made promises he shouldn't have.
GOP:  OMFG!!  WORST SCANDAL EVAR!!!1!

President Bush is dishonest/misleading:

Dems:  I think we were lied into war...this deserves attention...
GOP:  WHY DO YOU HATE OUR TROOPS?!!  GO BACK TO RUSSIA, COMMIE!!11!

This is not Obama's Katrina, it's Obama's Medicare Part D: a fkt up start that will be forgotten once the glitches are ironed out.

Of course, with Part D, the Dems conceded defeat on passage of the law, and worked toward making it function properly.  The GOP - to a man/woman - engage in hyperbole and do whatever they can possibly think of to NOT get the program running.  A bunch of colicky fkn babies.

Just when I think the GOP has hit bottom, they start digging.  F*ck them.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: I had 8 Katrinas at that Moscow whore house.


I once had 8 Katrinis at Harry's Bar in Venice and got wiped out.

/actually they were Sidecars but that's another story ... couldn't stick the key in the hotel room to get in and woke up every one

like all the rest this has aged him incredibly

ya'll think he'll shoot for a spot on the supreme court a decade or two down the road?
 
2013-11-15 08:28:37 PM  
By my calculations, lying to the American people in order to justify a war that you then aren't willing to pay for is equal to 10,000 Katrina's, so I think Obama still has a ways to go.
 
2013-11-15 08:30:11 PM  
Just fine.  How's that whole 'Losing the Culture War' thing coming along for you, rightwingboy?
 
2013-11-15 08:31:51 PM  
Wasn't Katrina Bush's Bay of Pigs?

You're doing a heckuva job, brownie.

One of them is hilarious.

Yeah, we totally should have elected one of Obama's opponents. They were farking geniuses and would have fixed all our problems.

Well color me shocked. Another complete bs right wing conspiracy theory.

I'll be surprised when a week goes by without these racist teahadists don't manufacture lies and outrage.
 
2013-11-15 08:34:42 PM  
Hannity started calling him a failure in November, 2008.

So that's where we are.
 
2013-11-15 08:34:45 PM  
Compared to the offered alternatives?
Fine, thanks.

Well as Pres. Obama has been driving the Republican party to frothy levels of idiocy, I'd say that Hope and Change is working out just fine for me. Thanks for asking for the 6,893rd time.

We're working to help the people and stabilize healthcare costs instead of lining the pockets of the oil companies and Halliburton. We got out of Iraq instead of staying there 100 years. We're talking to Iran again instead of bombing it.

I like my Hope and Change just fine. Your concern is noted and you are dismissed.

Obama's time machine has been retrofitted to carry cargo.

They didn't. They did have a time machine in 2008, though.
