Washington (CNN) – From the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico to Washington, critics charge that the Obama administration didn't act fast enough after the April 20 oil rig explosion and subsequent spill.

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh called the incident "Obama's Hurricane Katrina." A Palm Beach Post editorial stated that Obama "acted way too much like George Bush after Katrina." A Washington Examiner headline read: "Gulf oil spill becoming Obama's Katrina: A timeline of presidential delay."

Is the analogy fair?

    Of course the analogy isn't fair...but somehow the party of Nope, will try to convince/brainwash you through their official GOP Network Fox Fixed News until you are convinced.
