Obama Dozed, People Froze

Victoria over at Sundries spares Obama little in her take-downof his handling of the ice storm in Kentucky - hundreds of thousands are without power and, nationwide, 55 deaths have been blamed on the storm.

Of course, the media's coverage is largely favorable but there's no point in complaining. It's no secret that Obama can do no wrong and, in this case, I'd defend his actions as I would've Bush's in the Katrina disaster: a President, and his government, can only do so much in the face of a natural disaster and there are always going to be people who think something more could've been done.

The ice storm was a bad thing but bad things happen and the government can't do it all. It's too bad the media wasn't as generous with Bush as they have been, so far, with Obama.
