The differences between former President George Bush, President Obama, and Hillary, are myriad. Every president is different. Each has their own style of leadership. Some good, some bad. In this video, we see the good in Bush, and the not-so-good in Obama.
Watch how Bush responded to the devastation that Hurricane Katrina wrought on Louisiana in 2005. Then compare that to how Obama is responding to the current disaster Louisiana is suffering from because of historic flooding.
Like Obama is today, Bush was on vacation when the disaster hit Louisiana in 2005. The difference in how each handled the catastrophes is stark, though. Bush cut his vacation short by two days in order to be with the people affected by the superstorm. Obama continues golfing to this day – as the people of Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas suffer.
While some criticized Bush’s policies that dealt with the disaster, you can be sure he felt for the people enough that he ended his vacation to comfort them. The same can’t be said for the current president.
Obama’s vacation began on August 6th. It’s not supposed to end until Sunday, the 21st. He is not cutting his vacation short, instead choosing to visit Louisiana on Monday.
Even the liberal Washington Post displayed disbelief at the president’s seeming callous disregard for the people of Louisiana.
The Post’s Dave Boyer wrote,
“Not even the worst natural disaster since Superstorm Sandy could pry President Obama away from the golf course Wednesday.”
At least 13 people have died in the floods, 30,000 have been rescued, and 40,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed.
Not even this can get President Obama to cut short his golf outing.
Even presidential candidate Donald Trump adjusted his schedule to visit the people of Louisiana during their trying time.

Obama should be ashamed of his lack of concern for the citizens who are suffering so, right now. A real president would wish to be with his people.
Once again, George Bush is still leading by example.
