President Barack Obama took a veiled jab at his predecessor, George W. Bush, Monday during an appearance in New Orleans, where the former was touring damage caused by last week's Hurricane Isaac. Here's what Obama said, according to the White House transcript:

I despise this arrogant pos
Not more than myself. Obama is the worst thing to happen to this nation in a hundred years.
It actually looks like he insulted the coordination between the Bush administration and state/local officials after Kaatrina. Which, to be honest, is perfectly fair - federal, state and local agencies did a horrible job coordinating their response.
He is repulsive and foul. His hubris knows no bounds.
In no universe is piddly tropical storm Isaac comparable to the Cat 5 hurricane that was Katrina.
* Romney was seen for a few seconds on a boat taking the day off. There was a brief remark on Paul Ryan and the rest of the political news was all how great and magnificent Obama is, how we really are better off than 4 years ago and a quick interview with the local DNC chapter to tell us how glorious dear leaders is for bringing us a "sustainable 21st century economy."
The whole thing was maddening.
“I despise this arrogant pos”
You aren’t alone! We can’t be rid of him fast enough for me!
How fair and balanced of you. e
The fact is it’s done and over with and we’ve beaten this (*&#@I!! horse to death already. It’s not relevant to anything happening in NO with Isaac at this time. Nothing will compare to Katrina unless another Cat 5 blows through the Gulf. THEN we can’t say if things on all levels of the Government improved. And here’s something nobody likes to talk about; you are on your own in any disaster. This is why depending so much on big brotha’ for your existence is the worst kind of life. Did you hear about other middle class areas in other states acting up like the poor welfare riddled blacks in NO?? Nope, because they had the skills to cope and make it on their own while awaiting for some help.
There are no words for my hatred of this Muslim communist gay ghetto lying grifting looting stealing, thug.
I meant the middle class in areas that were wiped out and hit hard by Katrina. Everyone only ever talks about NO and the poor black population that Bush ‘hated’ and let drown.
He flies in after Romney like some savior AFTER IT IS ALL OVER (& press start asking about it) and taken care of by the governor of the state like it should be handled.
What does a junior Senator (& community organizer) from Chicago’s gutter know about ANYTHING?! Apparently nothing as we have sadly found out!
He is a snarky smartass who doesn’t realize we know he is stupid.
so do I, I can’t take seeing him on tv, and worse hearing him. November 7th is my birthday and I want my present on the 6th....
That isn't what happened.
Can you imagine trying to work with that sorry POS?! He thinks he knows it all and in fact knows nothing, not a damned thing!
I can’t wait for the jerk to slither off to his hole out of sight and out of mind!
And may the Democrat Party rot in hell for foisting him on this country!!! I will never forgive the people who voted for him either! If they are that stupid they deserve him but the rest of us don’t!!!
Love this post!!
When you think the bastard can't get any lower, he digs deeper.
My loathing of the illegitimate, bisexual, Marxist Kenyan Muslim Usurper requires a stiff drink.
And not in salute.
I caught the beginning of the convention and noticed they are all running against Bush!
This must be the talking point now - Bush bashing.
They are desperate.
On the Saturday edition of the NBC Nightly News, anchored by John Seigenthaler, correspondent Lisa Myers reported several critical mistakes made by Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco in handling the Hurricane Katrina crisis. The story even showcased a whispered conversation, recorded by CNN, between Blanco and an aide in which Blanco admitted she had been too slow in asking for federal troops. Blanco: “I really need to call for the military ... and I should have started that in the first call.”
Myers also relayed that when Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin ordered a mandatory evacuation 20 hours before Katrina hit, they were ignoring the advice of experts who had warned it would take 48 hours. Additionally, Blanco was slow to get National Guard troops to restore order. A complete transcript of the story follows:
