The White House Website is totally redesigned to celebrate America (snicker, cough, aha). It's really just tooting their own horn and by that I mean Our Glorious New Leader's. There's a place of course to solidify the new push for all Americans to serve their community, and another place to view all of BO's speeches and special words of wisdom and truth. And then there is a section dedicated to BO's agenda which contains a wonderful and heart felt slam of the now former President Bush--Great message of hopey changey there. . God help us.
How much money did President Bush end up giving the Katrina hit areas? A Busload and not one of those buses the NO mayor let just sit there and get flooded. Bush wasn't who let down the low-income people of NO. It was the mayor and the governor who dropped the ball.
President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.
President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration's "unconscionable ineptitude" in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips to the region. He worked with members of the Congressional Black Caucus to introduce legislation to address the immediate income, employment, business, and housing needs of Gulf Coast communities.President Barack Obama will partner with the people of the Gulf Coast to rebuild now, stronger than ever.
There is nothing worse than a politician who lies about others to make himself look better.
And OMG where will I volunteer so I too can feel all hopey changey---the commercial is everywhere. I gotta go breathe into a paper bag for a few minutes or hyper-ventilate. I'm gonna need valium or something to make it through the next 4 years.
