Dear Mr Bush,
Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.
Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?
Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!
I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?
And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!
On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.
There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.
No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!
You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.
Yep you�re right; it�s entirely the Presidents fault. He is after all God. He created the storm and sent it straight for New Orleans! What could he have been thinking!! While your passing around blame how about the Mayor of New Orleans? Why didn�t he better prepare his city? Check the link below. He didn�t even deploy the school buses to evacuate citizens before the storm or even move them to higher ground to use for evacuation after the storm. Now they are underwater and useless and buses are coming from Houston and Dallas. Great preparedness right? No, you�re right it�s all Bush�s fault.
You don't seem to get the point.There were no plans of any kind prior or after the disaster.Bush was vacationing and simply didn't give a flying
as of yesterday.Bush is talking about home land security but he can't secure the citizens of this country in the face of a natural disaster.It proves the point that there are no plans of any kind for anyone except those beurocrats who are hiding behind the walls of the white house ,congratulating and praising each other for their efforts to the crisis.In the mean time as the media claims thousands have died many of them on the aftermath of the disaster,thousands were left in the mercy of God.Our elected in goverment politicians were aware of the great danger and the catastrophic results but they choose to do absolutely nothing and rather enjoy their vacations.It's a sin it's a crime it's immoral.They shamed us Americans to other nations but shamed on them and not to the citizens of our great nation.God bless America but God curse those responsible.
That is one of the stupidest thing i have ever read. How in the hell, can mr. Bush be blamed for all the blacks living in new orleans? Tou and the ass hole who wrote it, need to be shot.if it was not against the law, i would be glad to bust a few caps in each of you.
