    Rena, you nailed it.

    Obama in Haiti is a mission of mercy, not a presidential duty.

    And Obama will outperform Bush, even though NOLA is IN the USA and Haiti is not.

    •  I was reading the Fineman article (0+ / 0-)

      and the comments attached to it.  Lots of back-and-forth going on there now that this had made the rec list.  A lot of people were pointing out that even it is a crappy comparison, it will still be made and to accept that fact.

      And sadly, I thought - the majority of Americans won't give a shit because Haiti is not in America.  So the good news comes shrouded in depressing news - no, he won't be judged overmuch on the response to Haiti.  But the reason why is because average American's don't care what happens outside of their immediate proximity.

      Sigh.
