Jon Stewart “It is hard to overstate what a low point this is in Barack Obama’s Presidency, hard to overstate it, but not impossible.”

Brian Williams (NBC) “President Obama now finds himself compared to President George W Bush, as in the problems with the health care plan have become President Obama’s Katrina.”

CNN host “Is this Obama’s Katrina moment?”

MSNBC host “President Obama’s Katrina moment.”

Stewart “Katrina? Hurricane Katrina? Yes, I believe we’ve all see the damning photos of the Presidential flyover surveying the human suffering, (Shows a picture of a man on a roof surrounded by water and wreakage, holding a sign that says 404 error page not found) of the Healthcare.gov website, from a safe distance. I’m not trying to polish the .turd that is Healthcare.gov, but comparing the government abdication of responsibility during hurricane Katrina, the death of hundreds of people, the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people to a (bad) website is offensive, apparently, to the people who were in charge during hurricane Katrina”

Former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card (November 18, 2013) “Katrina was a real disaster, but we also had jurisdictional challenges because you had a Mayor and the White House couldn’t do anything with the Mayor objecting. We had a Governor of Louisiana that was a challenge to work with.”

Stewart “That’s President Bush’s Chief Of Staff Andy Card saying it’s not fair to President Bush to compare the Healthcare.gov roll out to Katrina, because during Katrina Bush didn’t get the cooperation of the Louisiana Governor, you know, the way Obama gets it now”

Gov Bobby Jindal (R-LA) November 8, 2013 “Look, nobody’s going to bully Louisiana into expanding medicaid or joining part of Obamacare.”

Stewart “Bullying? The Feds were going to pay for the medicaid expansion. How is that bullying? Hey four-eyes, if you need to see an ophthalmologist, we can cover that. I mean, how is that bullying? That’s not the only reason, by the way, that the comparison is unfair to George Bush.”

Fox News Anchor “George Bush didn’t invent a hurricane.”

Fox News Anchor “Katrina was one region, though, this is across the country.”

Chris Wallace (Fox News) “Katrina was a terrible event. Lord knows, you were there, you saw how badly our government responded, but it began and ended within a week. This could affect people’s lives for years”

Stewart “Are you out of your bleeping mind? …I mean, hurricane Katrina lasted a week, and the effects of Obamacare, Spike Lee’s documentary about Katrina lasted longer than a week.”

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said Sunday that top Republicans urged him to go after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the latest indication that the junior senator from Texas has alienated members of his own party over his strategy to defund Obamacare and risk a government shutdown.

Cruz was a guest on “Fox News Sunday,” which Wallace hosts.

“This has been one of the strangest weeks I’ve ever had in Washington and I say that because as soon as we listed Ted Cruz as our featured guest this week, I got unsolicited research and questions, not from Democrats but from top Republicans, to hammer Cruz,” Wallace told his panel before asking GOP strategist Karl Rove why Republicans were upset with Cruz.

“Well, because this was a strategy laid out by Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz without any consultation with their colleagues,” Rove told Wallace.

The host of “Fox News Sunday” Chris Wallace rebutted the suggestion made by some conservatives that President Barack Obama was stoking racial tensions by wading so deeply into the the issue of the George Zimmerman verdict on Friday.

“I thought he was trying to help both sides of the divide understand, and I thought he was especially moving when he talked about the new generation, talked about his daughters and the idea that the new generation, the upcoming generation, is better than people of our ages were in the sense they’re more color blind, they don’t see whites see black or blacks see whites as much of a threat,” the veteran journalist said on Fox News.

“I thought he was trying to deal with it in a forthright fashion,” he added. “Whether it was his race speech during the 2008 campaign or other speeches, this is when the President can be most effective. The speech he gave after the senseless shooting of Gabby Giffords in Tucson about violence in our society–Boy, I sure don’t see how you can read this as in any way stoking racial tensions.”
