I’ll always believe that George W. Bush was unfairly tarred with what happened in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrnia. (The Democratic mayor and governor were the real culprits.) But thanks to biased media coverage and an unfortunate comment by the president to the head of FEMA, Katrina planted in the public’s mind that Bush was somehow to blame.

(I won’t list all the examples here.) I’m wondering if, given the failures of the CDC, his PC refusal to ban flights from the affected countries, and his own repeated false assurances, the Ebola epidemic will finally be Mr. Obama’s Katrina moment.
You know Mr. Obama’s worried, because he actually canceled a fund raiser….
