Do you think Obama handled the Louisiana floods well?
Leadership means delegating to responsible people. Bush was criticized because FEMA was in disarray under his management. Sure, Obama didn't visit the flooding, but he made sure competent people were providing relief.
It's fair to say that Obama did not go to Louisiana to survey the damage. But that's just a photo opportunity. Do people think he is going to jump into the flooding waters and reverse the tides? He is doing what he can from afar—he's being a commander-in-chief.
Bush was criticized on Katrina not b/c he didn't show up, but for FEMA's bungled response to Katrina. Fair to judge Obama on same metrics.
