Just a few weeks ago, the New York Times was still in “cover President Obama’s Obama” mode, as they tried to say Obama merely “misspoke” when he made the same promise dozens of times to the American public, and then broke it. Now it’s becoming clearer just how disastrous a predicament Obama is in, and how Democrats are scurrying in a panic to disassociate themselves with the creator of #DebacleCare. Even the New York Times can’t deny it anymore.
Some on the Left chafed at the comparison:

(According to the Urban Dictionary, AYFKM means “Are You F”n Kidding Me?”)
@GarrySouth if you said "This is Obama's Katrina", then the comparison, no matter how accurate politically, disrespects those who suffered

@MarkHarrisNYC Press has been declaring everything "Obama's Katrina" since the Salahis crashed that party in 2009. Ridiculous.

See what Wonkette writer Kaili Joy Gray did there? Because racism!
And check out this Huffpo reporter huffing and puffing:
Obamacare is not Obama's Katrina. That analogy makes no sense. But the NYT goes there http://t.co/ThBV9Io4OI

But many others thought the Times’ comparison was rather fitting, or not harsh enough on Obama:
"a majority of Americans no longer trust the president or believe that he is being honest" http://t.co/BhQBpnKnwR

NYTimes compares Obama and Healthcare rollout with Bush and Katrina response. Ouch! http://t.co/joTg76foye

Obamacare = Bush/Katrina http://t.co/NiiDUpLTaA Except (a) Obama actually caused this disaster and (b) you aren't implying he's a racist.

RT @kesgardner For those suggesting that Obama’s problems are comparable to GWB, Obamacare is causing FAR more harm than Katrina or Iraq War

Media can compare Katrina and ObamaCare all they want. History will vindicate Bush on Katrina. ObamaCare is ALL Obama.
