Hey Bush Bashers, What About This?

One of the hardest things for me to stomach in the aftermath of Katrina is this incessant attack against President Bush. A hurricane is a natural DISASTER for crying out's not everyday business. While the media was showing people angry because it "took so long" to get aid and help to vicitims, interviews with on-scene doctors who said it was "amazing" that people got evactuated as quickly as they did, interviews with people in California who said things like, "we've been told when the 'big one' hits we should expect to be on our own for a minimum of 4 days before any type of help arrives" and people in Dallas' own Reunion Arena who were so very grateful for the help they got were given pitifully little or no air time whatsoever. And of course, all of this has been blamed on the President in the midst of accusations that President Bush doesn't like black people, that the government is set up to help black people as slowly as possible and that his National Day of Prayer for Katrina victims is nothing more than a diversion or a cover up. And who was blaming Bush the loudest? What's that you say? The governor of Lousiana and Mayor of New Orleans? Yep, that's right. And now we read Lousiana Officials Indicted Before Katrina Hit . Hey Bush bashers, what about this?
