2. Kudos!
We must never forget the inaction of Bush and his minions as New Orleans drowned and the fact that they just left that beautiful city to rot afterwards.

in the federal flood could mount a class-action wrongful-death suit against Bush.

people of color who tended Democratic, couldn't be bothered with their safety, and was only too happy to see them scattered around the country and not return, if not dead--which made Louisiana a redder state.

All of US knew the disaster that was about to happen. We were up all night terrified for the people of the Gulf Coast. George Bush didn't have a care in the world.

21. Once Katrina turned due north around Key West and juiced up to
Force 5, the Gulf Coast was a horror waiting to happen.

And Bush played air guitar.

24. Beautiful Pictorial and comments ....
I will never forget Katrina and what he let happen there. I thought that I knew the limits of human depravity, but taught me that I really had no idea.

Look at his eyes while he is photographed in the plane flying over New Orleans. They are full of malice and spite. He probably resented having to leave his party.

42. Yeah I know ......
I used to think that everyone had some bit of compassion or redemption inside of them if one could look long enough or hard enough or simply wait until they were so buffeted by life that they understood the meaning of it better.

After Bush though, it finally sank in that there are people who have no compassion, no concern for others and absolutely no redeeming qualities.

I think it was during this same time period that he was returning to Washington DC one night. He wasn't expecting photographers, but they were there, and they captured his essence. Laura was helping him off the plane so he wouldn't fall over. His face was flushed like only a drunken person's face flushes, and he had wet himself so that even in the dark you could see it staining a large area of his pants in front and down most of one pants leg. He had a very pleased expression on his face and an idiotic grin. Must have been a great party. Laura had obviously been doing this for years. It looked very practiced and she was nearly carrying him. Of course he wasn't drinking or so he assured everyone. He must have been holding a goldfish bowl on his lap. :wtf:

So there you have him. Unfeeling, cruel, witless and beyond redemption. What a winning package. Just ask the people of New Orleans. He is the worst president in history and one of the worst examples of humanity that I have ever seen.

If one hit Louisiana tomorrow there'd be no difference in the response. We know that America and Americans will never care about what happens to us.

Don't worry it doesn't hurt anyone's feelings down here, we gave up on you ever caring a long time ago.

in NOLA post Katrina, you're welcome.

And may I have the hundred dollars back I gave to the Red Cross for Katrina relief efforts? I could use it. I'm living on a small pension.

Not everyone turned their backs. Don't compare us to Bush

30. I understand how you feel, but that is simply not true.
There were a lot of Americans from all walks of life, including many here at DU, who helped us in new Orleans.

George W. Bush was and still is mostly to blame for what happened in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina... not the governor, mayor, bad or good police, thieves or innocent victims, et al.

The buck stopped on the desk of President George W. Bush.

31. Bullshit
Not one soul was lost in New Orleans due to the storm. Bush*, in all of his republican hatred for the government, dismantled FEMA as it was under President Clinton and put in a party stooge at its helm. The bush* administration actively blocked relief efforts. While people were trapped, drowning, and dying from lack of hydration and lack of medical care (normal heart, bp, and diabetic medications) orders came from the administration to not allow rescuers into New Orleans and to not let anyone leave. There was actually a naval ship with medications and the ability to create 100,000 gallons of potable water that followed the storm to land to provide aide if necessary. That ship was not allowed to give aide in anyway.

I stayed at this computer for days stunned and shocked by the purposeful disaster that was foisted upon the people of New Orleans. People here monitored what was happening in real time and if you could please bother yourself to do an archive search you would understand how ridiculous and offensive your post is.

35. That's way too much generalization for such a short paragraph
You know how everyone in and out of Louisiana feels and would react to a storm? The problem wasn't a nationwide lack of caring, it was ineptness in the ones wielding the power to do something. Your statement does not represent the views of everyone from Louisiana.

With lighting by Scotty Forza, and Bush couldn't even button his own shirt right. And as soon as the speech was over, they shut off the generators and New Orleans was in in the dark again.

Do you think that had such a disaster hit a place populated mainly by affluent whites, that place would have been abandoned in her hour of need by BushCo?

The SUPER dome is in New Orleans and was damaged by the storm as shown in your picture.

The ASTRO dome is in Houston and was undamaged by the storm.
