Bush Outpaced Barack Obama's Gulf Trips

It figures. President Bush’s trips to the Gulf Region following Hurricane Katrina outpaced Barack Obama’s Gulf trips following the rig explosion and oil spill this year. But you certainly wouldn’t know that from the state-run media.
FOX Nation reported:

…When it comes to visiting the disaster-stricken area, Obama still lags behind his predecessor, former President George W. Bush, whose slow and stumbling reaction to Hurricane Katrina drew scathing reviews and left a permanent mark on his approval rating.

In the 46-day period in the fall of 2005, after back-to-back hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Bush made eight trips to the distressed region, including a 35-minute flyover of the region on board Air Force One. That trip came two days after Katrina hit, and Bush returned to review response actions on the ground several days later. He proceeded to make trips to Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Texas to track the government’s response.

The difference, of course, being that President Bush was a Republican and President Obama is the the media’s chosen one.
