It's Official, The Oil Spill IS Obama's Katrina

By more than a 2-to-1 margin, Americans support the pursuit of criminal charges in the nation's worst oil spill , with increasing numbers calling it a major environmental disaster. Eight in 10 criticize the way BP's handled it and more people give the federal government's response a negative rating than did the response to Hurricane Katrina.
A month and a half after the spill began, 69 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll rate the federal response negatively. That compares with a 62 negative rating for the response to Katrina two weeks after the August 2005 hurricane.

BP's response to the spill draws isn't anywhere NEAR better. 81% rate it negatively, and 64% say the government should pursue criminal charges against BP and other companies involved in the spill.

We're on Day 50...and nothing has changed.

Speaking of change, apparently Obama Administration was supposed be a "Change" from the Bush Administration.  Look at these two timelines; one of the Bush Administration's responsse to Katrina and one of the Obama Administration's response to the BP Oil Spill.

The Bush Administration: Katrina

The Obama Administration: BP Oil Spill

So much for 'change' America.
