John McCain has asserted that, because Barack Obama has not visited Iraq since 2006, it demonstrates a “lack of appreciation of the importance of this issue.” The Huffington Post notes that, by analogy, McCain must have a lack of appreciation for the importance of post-Katrina reconstruction. “Up until traveling there one month ago, [McCain] had made just one public tour of New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina touched down in August 2005.” Obama has visited five times over the same period.
