President Obama has had 19 Katrina moments according to Conservatives

The Washington Post puts the hilarious list together for us all.

The BP Oil Spill

Charles Krauthammer: “In the end, speeches will make no difference. If BP can cap the well in time to prevent an absolute calamity in the gulf, the president will escape politically. If it doesn’t — if the gusher isn’t stopped before the relief wells are completed in August — it will become Obama’s Katrina.”

Karl Rove: “Could this be Mr. Obama’s Katrina? It could be even worse.”

Associated Press reporter Calvin Woodward: “Will this be Obama’s Katrina? Should the federal and state governments have done more, and earlier? Did they learn the lessons of the devastating hurricane?”

Professor John Barry: “Until recently, it didn’t look like this was going to be Obama’s Katrina. That seemed to be a Fox News hope, rather than a reality. But from where we sit, there seems to be a lot of inaction.”

Sean Hannity: “The president has not taken the lead. This is Obama’s Katrina on steroids.”

The NSA leaks

Jennifer Rubin: “In a way, the NSA intelligence gathering is President Obama’s Katrina.”

Swine Flu

The Kansas City Star: “If the number of deaths mount, and if critics start second-guessing the speed in which the vaccine was distributed, could H1N1 become Obama’s Katrina?”

The Fort Hood shooting

Human Events: “Fort Hood could become Barack Obama’s Katrina.”
