New Orleans Rooftop SOS

President Bush selling Medicare drug program while New Orleans drowns
As New Orleans drowns, President Bush stays the course with his original schedule,
and goes off to sell his prescription drug plan to incredulous seniors.

New Orleans roof scene 2005    President Bush sees Katrina from his sky box
As the poor folks await rescue in the lower levels of New Orleans, President Bush descends from the heavens in Air Force One to peer at them.

Compassionate Conservatism inaction.

William's Whimsical Words:

Now we have learned that Katrina was not a natural disaster. It was a hurricane that was turned into a man-made disaster by malfeasance in the Army Corps of Engineers that permitted some of the levees that failed to be literally built on sand.
