Imagine if while Katrina's after effects were still herding homeless people all over the south President Bush went golfing. He would have been destroyed in the press in a tsunami of hit pieces that would still be whirling about your head and neck.
Not Obama. He gets to shoot 18 holes while the Gulf of Mexico burns and pukes oil and the press says nothing. If this guy had to deal with the same treatment in the media as Bush, he would already be considered one of the worst Presidents ever. Instead he gets another pass.
Grading on a curve has sure saved Obama so far.
