At least, that is what I would claim after reading this news if I were as deranged as the Left was during and after hurricane Katrina. Instead, I will assume it is merely incompetence as a result of his lack of previous leadership in, well, anything. But maybe he can put together an inspiring speech with mellifluous intonation to those shivering in their homes .
Update: The Anchoress blames the media. I'd be content to have the media report hysterically when a Republican presides over a natural disaster and semi-hysterically when it is a Democrat. I would prefer balanced, even-tempered, objective coverage of both, but I could barely contain my laughter as I write this sentence.
Update: A lot of people are seeing the hipocrisy here.
