Katrina v. Border Crisis: The Trouble With 'Optics' 11.7.2014 American Prospect
I've been writing about politics for a long time, and it's a tribute to the dynamism of our glorious democracy that every time I think that things couldn't get any stupider, I'm proven wrong yet again. While we face a genuine humanitarian and policy crisis on our southern border, with thousands of children making their way across hundreds of miles to wind up in the arms of the Border Patrol, the news media allowed Republicans to turn the focus to the deeply important question of whether or not President Obama would travel there to mount a photo op. Seriously. Then because it wasn't removed enough from reality already, people in the media are now talking about whether Barack Obama does photo ops and how often, because if he rejected a photo op on this particular issue but has photo-opped before, then I guess he's a hypocrite and therefore...um...therefore something.   I'm not saying that "optics" are, per se, a bad thing to discuss. I certainly agree with Kevin Drum that as a general matter, "how ...

The Fix: Why Obama should probably visit the border 10.7.2014 Washington Post
President Obama is not going to the U.S.-Mexico border. And not only that — he thinks the idea is stupid . "This is not theater," Obama said late Wednesday. "I’m not interested in photo ops." The response was strong because the calls for him to visit the border have been strong. Border-representing Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Tex.) said earlier Wednesday that Obama looked "aloof" by coming within a few hundred miles of the border without actually going ...

Ex-New Orleans mayor given 10-year sentence 10.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
New Orleans • When Ray Nagin was elected mayor in 2002, there was real hope that he was a break from the city’s sleazy past. Three years later, with his city awash in foul water and rotting corpses, he became something of a national cult hero, raging against the slow, incompetent federal response to his crippled city’s plight. “Excuse my French — everybody in America — but I am pissed,” he shouted during a radio appearance three days after Hurricane Katrina swamped the Crescent City. In the end...
