25 Mind-Numbingly Stupid Quotes About Hurricane Katrina
1) "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." President Bush, on "Good Morning America," Sept. 1, 2005, six days after repeated warnings from experts about the scope of damage expected from Hurricane Katrina

2) "What I'm hearing which is sort of scary is that they all want to stay in Texas. Everybody is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway so this (chuckle) this is working very well for them." Former First Lady Barbara Bush, on the Hurricane flood evacuees in the Houston Astrodome, Sept. 5, 2005

3) "It makes no sense to spend billions of dollars to rebuild a city that's seven feet under sea level....It looks like a lot of that place could be bulldozed." House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), Aug. 31, 2005

4) "We've got a lot of rebuilding to do ... The good news is and it's hard for some to see it now that out of this chaos is going to come a fantastic Gulf Coast, like it was before. Out of the rubbles of Trent Lott's house he's lost his entire house there's going to be a fantastic house. And I'm looking forward to sitting on the porch." (Laughter) President Bush, touring hurricane damage, Mobile, Ala., Sept. 2, 2005

2. Hard to figure these people.
Maybe they come from Mars? They are some type of class act that I just never wish to meet. And now letting their pals in to do the work and they can pay the worker less than every one else. They just do not under stand shame at all. Greed will do this country in if nothing else does, that for sure.
