Show Us That You Care, George
More presidential piffle:
"The federal government still knows you exist."
Well, gee, thanks a fuck of a lot. Considering we still pay our taxes...and still send soldiers off to die in your wars, that's real nice...you asshole.
"I fully understand that there are frustrations, and I want to know the frustrations," Bush said while sitting down to lunch with city leaders. "To the extent we can help, we'll help."
Hmmm...another "to the extent" the federal government blah blah blah, tripe/nonsense statement. Hey, dick--and Dick Big Time, if you're bothering to listen...to paraphrase Hyman Roth, the money never made it to the island.
That's why you were being rebuked, even if you never mentioned it. Because you continue to lie and bullshit your way around the region, hoping a photo-op can cover up not just a lack of committment, but an utter abandonment.
"To the extent..." To paraphrase another movie line, I didn't know they stacked shit that high.
And to the rest of the country--beware. What's happened to New Orleans can--and might well--happen to you. Don't say you weren't warned.
