After the White House announced that the president would visit the flood-damaged areas on Tuesday — 11 days after the flooding began — Alley posted a video of him criticizing George W. Bush for his slow response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

“I can say from personal experience how frustrating, how unconscionable it is, that it has been so difficult to get medical supplies to those in need quickly enough,” Obama — then a senator — says from the Senate floor in the video.

“If there’s any bright light that has come out of this disaster, it’s the degree to which ordinary Americans have responded with speed and determination even as their government has responded with unconscionable ineptitude.”

Alley added that she thought Bush waited too long to visit the area in 2005. (RELATED: Here’s How George Bush Responded To Louisiana Compared To Obama Today)
