Where Was He and What Did He Know?

Mike Lester, 5/25/11:
As an anonymous reader pointed out, Bush was on vacation on his Texas ranch on the day after Katrina hit and the levees broke -- and, one could note, Katrina was seen coming many days ahead of time, which allowed much more scope for pre-planning.

Obama, on the other hand, was on a working international tour at the time of the -- unexpected, one might note -- Joplin tornadoes.

So this is not precisely a fair comparison...but, then, when do we ever go to editorial cartoonists for fairness?
