More thoughts on the Hurricane

I'm not much of one for TV, but last night I watched one of the specials on Hurricane Katrina. WOW. Having grown up on the coast and been through a storm or two, I ain't ever seen anything like that. I feel bad about my joking about hoarding hot sauce. This is terrible. So after watching TV last night, I even turned on the TV this morning in time to watch our fearless leader Georgie Boy reassure us that people look to the White House for answers (or solutions or results, I don't remember the exact quote) and he's going to deliver. Yeah, sure, I'm comforted now. Interestingly, he didn't sound nearly as confident as he was after 911. The only thing he said that I feel I can take to the bank is that this tragedy will not change our activities in Iraq and we'll not have a tax increase (at least as long as he's President). The next President and Congress will get to figure how to pay for it all.

Oh yeah, Bush also warned gas stations against price gouging. This is from a former oil executive! I can sleep soundly knowing a fox is watching the hen house.


  1. Hi! Michele sent me.

    Nice to see that Americans have just as little faith in their fearful leader as the rest of the world!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. And yeah, I agree that is probably the only thing he said you can believe.

  3. The trouble, politically, with a natural disaster, is that there's no one to bomb. For an administration that clearly sees things in terms of good/evil, righteous/wicked, it’s pretty hard to figure out how to spin this one.
