I'm sure you'll be as surprised as I was to read this article, describing the Bush administration's failure to keep its promises to the people in New Orleans and elsewhere who were hit by Hurricane Katrina:

(also linked to at The Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ -- "Broken Promises")

I seem to remember Bush making a statement about how he was going to address the underlying problem of poverty that was exposed by the hurricane. I'm guessing he's going to roll out his plan for doing just that in his State of the Union speech, if not sooner. Most likely he'll pay for it by rolling back the tax cuts for high income Americans. Don't hold your breath though.

Wow. You said that with a straight face? I'm impressed. Frankly, I expect the "lib'rals" to get the blame for the problem, somehow. If not by King George, then by one of his spin doctors/interpreters (Hannity, O'Riley, Limbaugh, Savage, et all..)

Somehow, the problem will lie with the need to protect "umerica" from "the terrorists", so that's why the money and resources haven't been available. But, in the end, if the lib'rals had been doing their part, we wouldn't be in this mess.

Or some nonsense to that effect...
