Nero Bush Fiddles While the Gulf States Drown
It was announced that Bush would be cutting his precious vacation by 2 WHOLE DAYS. Oooh, don't hurt yourself by giving a natural disaster of this mammoth proportion your Presidential attention, Bush. Didja catch him presenting a birthday cake to the Arizona Bush Bootlicker McCain? I guess those who have lost everything weren't invited, huh? But why would massive destruction and death toll make Bush take notice? (courtesy of Attytood): "It appears that the money has been moved in the president’s budget to handle homeland security and the war in Iraq, and I suppose that’s the price we pay. Nobody locally is happy that the levees can’t be finished, and we are doing everything we can to make the case that this is a security issue for us." -Walter Maestri, emergency management chief for Jefferson Parish, LA as printed in the New Orleans Times-Picayune, June 8, 2004.
