    Possibly the laziest administration during my lifetime in terms of actually keeping tabs of the functioning of government departments and agencies.
    The government that presided over FEMA during hurricane Katrina and watched an American city drown on television with the rest of us, is by far the laziest and most incompetent administration in my lifetime in terms of actually keeping tabs of the functioning of government departments and agencies.

    This was the same administration that presided over the Walter Reed Medical Center neglect.

    I just don't see a chronic, systemic problem across agencies that merits this administration as being the laziest administration.

      Obama's administration is handling this as opposed to the bush administration.

      ... not really giving a damn (or the side effects of actual bad intentions).  Things that were important to that administration WERE paid attention to.  Things that were not important were (in effect) sabotaged -- or at least ignored and de-funded in order to further some other more (less) worthy purpose.
