3. Where do they find these people? Surely there can't be that many
adoring Bush fans in New Orleans. How quickly they forget. Look around people: things are NOT back to normal. The people who died because of the government this man is leading will never get a second chance to live their lives.

And people can still hug this man! Disgraceful.
