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?
