Grasping for any travel opportunity which gives him an excuse to leave the Oval Office in a time of war, the president flew to New Orleans to make somber faces in remembrance of Hurricane Katrina. Unfortunately, many residents of the storm-battered coastal states consider the president's brief four hour visit to be nothing more than a photo-op at their expense.
In fairness to Obama, despite "expert" opinions that global warming would cause catastrophic hurricanes this year, it was the mildest hurricane season in 27 years, without a single hurricane making American landfall since the president took office. Coincidence? We think not.
