Baton Rouge, We Have A Problem

I'm sure the Louisiana GOP will simply blame the partisan leaning of Public Policy Polling. I'm more inclined to blame unmitigated GOPer ignorance:

Poll: Louisiana GOPers Unsure If Katrina Response Was Obama’s Fault
Tom Kludt [TPM] 10:33 AM EDT, Wednesday August 21, 2013

A significant chunk of Louisiana Republicans evidently believe that President Barack Obama is to blame for the poor response to the hurricane that ravaged their state more than three years before he took office.


Education dysfunction?
Twenty-eight percent said they think former President George W. Bush, who was in office at the time, was more responsible for the poor federal response while 29 percent said Obama, who was still a freshman U.S. Senator when the storm battered the Gulf Coast in 2005, was more responsible. Nearly half of Louisiana Republicans — 44 percent — said they aren't sure who to blame.

Several decades ago, a friend of mine casually offered me a job on the staff of a major Louisiana university's computer services department, which he was being hired to direct. I turned him down. Does the article excerpted above give you an idea why?
