On the Mark

This Rich Lowry column pretty much nails what has been bedeviling the president for the past year -- Katrina hangover.

People don't expect the government to stop disasters (natural or otherwise) but they do expect them to respond appropriately. The Bush administration has done virtually nothing about fixing the problems that exist in New Orleans. And even if it is not always at the top of their minds, the voters subconsciously realize that this administration is not strong at making sure that government works for all the people, and that is troubling because the government needs to protect the weak and the strong.
