gwbush once said, "i love america and its citizens."...aren't black people citizens of america?
What did she say?
I, for one, think that Bush's response to this disaster has been disgraceful. I expect that leaders in the democratic party and civil rights activists to ask for his resignation. Moreover, President Bush's attempt to divert attention away from the hurricane crisis by announcing he would nominate a person to replace Rehinquist and his insistance of Roberts nomination to continue this week shows just how political minded he is. I have reserved opinion on George W. Bush for many years, but his performance as President in this aftermath has been pathetic.Now we might have an oil crisis if we can reopen the refineries in New Orleans, we're spending hundreds of millions of dollars a month in Iraq, and now we have a massive multi-billion dollar rebuilding project on our hands. Who else still thinks tax cuts were a good idea? Especially tax cuts favoring the rich over the less fortunate?Had Clinton been President, he would've been down at that Stadium the day after the storm shaking hands and making the people feel like everything was going to be ok. He would've had troops on the ground ASAP and he would've called a special session of Congress to secure the funding earlier. He would've been on FEMA's ass from day one. Clinton would've been in the water talking to survivors and he would've made a speech outlining our options. Bush campaigned in 2000 that he was no Clinton - and that is probably his main problem.I'm disgusted.
