How Much Did The Bush Family Give To The Hurricane Victims?

I know that he asked his Daddy to buddie up with Clinton to beg money from people.

I know that he asked all of us to give up some rides in our cars to save energy.

I know that he thought that Drownie was doing a great job and saving lots of lives of "those people down there." Did he give FEMA some $$'s for the cause?

I know that he clowned around with a selected crowd of
Christians leaders and fake two girls from somewhere to give everybody some love in the Gulf States.

I know that he was so sorry that his buddy Trent lost his house in the hurricane. Did he give his buddy some $$ to ease the pain?

How many $$$$$$'s did these billionaires give to the cause?

1. Besides contempt?
No clue - but they did show a lot of contempt for the victims.

2. Acted like they didn't want to soil their

lilly white hands and touch something dirty.
Begged everyone to help their fellow Amerikans but what did HE do?

8. They think our money is their money

and they happily give it to all their rick friends.

There is a special place in hell for this kind of greed.
