The Shit Storm Follows the Weather Storm
Once again this administration is reflecting any blame and their responsibility in the aftermath of Katrina. Bush had this to say about the slow federal reaction:
"I am satisfied with the response," he said of the government's emergency operations. "I'm not satisfied with all the results."
GOI: Huh? What the F*ck does THAT mean???
The Right Wing apologists are spinning faster then the spin cycle on your washing machine:
Bush partisans went on the offensive. Grover Norquist, the conservative activist with close ties to Karl Rove, blamed the chaos on "looting in a Democratic city run by a Democratic mayor and a Democratic governor."
GOI: So, Democrats are looters by nature? Is that implication here?? The Democratic mayor decided to let anarchy reign I guess. Even though he was cut off from his police forces and stranded in a city hall which had basically turned into an island. Hmm, yeah that makes A LOT of sense.
Still, nobody accused Bush of an overly rapid response. It took two days for Bush to fly over the disaster zone in Air Force One, and four days for him to touch down.
GOI: No matter how you try to spin this mess it is still Bush's country and therefore Bush's baby. He seems to like to take credit when credit is do but point fingers whenever it is obvious that he and his administration have made mistakes.
