News comment of the day: ‘We are on our own’

In Times-Picayune reporter Paul Rioux’s story about President Barack Obama’s visit to Louisiana on Friday, “President Obama again says he understands oil spill frustration during speech in Grand Isle,” openmike made this comment:
Having seen Bush through the federal flooding after Katrina and now seeing Obama through this one, it is increasingly clear to me that government is not able to respond to disasters. There is simply not the organization to do so . . . We are on our own, just as we were after the levees broke.
