Flashback: Barack Obama slams George Bush for ignoring Louisiana flooding after Hurricane Katrina

When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans back in 2005 George Bush was on vacation and both the left and the media (but I repeat myself) had a field day with a President they claimed was out of touch and uncaring. Then Senator Barack Obama was no stranger when it came to blasting George Bush for vacationing while the people of New Orleans were suffering through an unbelievable natural disaster.

Here is what he said:

Yet as parts of Louisiana are underwater today Barack Obama has been absent because he is on vacation. I believe today he played his ninth round of golf while parts of Louisiana are suffering through the same devastation as did New Orleans in 2005, yet he gets a free pass in the media because it does not fit the narrative.

At least George Bush saw the devastation from an airplane as he flew overhead. Barack Obama has only seen the devastation form the television, if he has seen it at all, and yet the Democrats and the mainstream media remain silent. And by the way, why are not the Republicans calling him out on his hypocrisy?
