In her own words, on Larry King...

"What I'm hearing, which is sort of scarry, is that they all want to stay in Texas, and so many people in the arena were underpriviledged any way, so this is working very well for them."

A little hard to swallow after watching Laura for a week, giving out all those frozen hugs with her shoulders, while holding her head away from the huggee.

The Bush Motto..."Let them eat cake."

I read about this in the paper tonight. She was even said to be laughing about it, kind of making a joke in the article. Now I know where George W. gets his arrogance! Someone should drop kick her in her goat smelling a$$.
Damn another Texan speaks, and puts entire foot in mouth. We will soon be voted out of the Union with all of this bad Texas publicity! /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Hey Wendy, I know the type. George Carlin called her the Silver Douche Bag, LMAO! This was the perfect example of what I think is unconscious racism. The lives of the wealthy political oil rich resmuglicans who surround Bush, is sich a far cry from the plight of the poverty strickened, they can't even relate to black people on rooftops with no food or water. When we know that black people represent the great majority of the underpriveleged in our country, and we take a serious look at the policies of the Bush Administration, is it any wonder that his own Mother would make such a racist statement right on national television? Add to that the arrogant statements of the right wing press, such as O'Reiley, who suggests, with raging ignorance of their plight, that the poor just need to get an education, that's all.

Amazing how many in this country have no understanding of what these people face, day to day, and what they must overcome in order to advance. But, as long as we are focussed on the plight of the Iraqis, well, who gives a $hit about the poverty strickened in this country, right?

While I hope we don't have any more oil rich presidents, with oil rich cabinets running this country, one only has to watch the news to see that there are many kind people in Texas, who did reach out to help these people. Be proud of that my friend.

I'm pretty sure that those people in those helicoptors rescuing people aren't making any distinction about what color the victims are. I can't imagine any order telling them to get the whites first!

Once again, you miss the point. It is the Bush policies which deprived the New Orleans area of the financial help they needed to correct the flood problem in the first place.

Also, it is the tax structure of the Bush administration which is increasing the number of poverty strickened in this country in the first place, while the rich get millions back in tax relief every year, and the middle class pays for the luxuaries of the rich, AND jions the ranks of the poor.

Ya think Bush, while he gets richer on oil, is very concerned about the gasoline crises? Think Cheney is? Oh and how bout Rice, former management of Chevron Corporation?

Barbara Bush was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, and so was Bush senior. Her statements on Larry King show give ample proof on her racist views, and her inability to identify with the poor. The Bush tax structure does the same, along with his inability to give a damn about what was happening to New Orleanians for five days.

I did see one news clip which also stated that many whites in boats just zoomed on by those blacks on the rooftops and helped the whites first, this was admitted by one of the white men who saw it happening.

What a joke to blame the Bush policy for the flood problems. There have been many mayors, governors and presidents who have pilfered this money long before Bush.

The government at all levels has not performed as well as I would have liked in this situation. But putting all the blame on Bush is foolish. Washington shares in the blame, but the local and state officials weren't exactly on top of things either.

Bush IS at fault for eveything. I lost a set of

beaten. If I wasn't so upset about Bush's foreign
policy I wouldn't have lost my concentration.
I've noticed that more and more Republicans are

Onepocketfanatic. I had suggested selling Texas back to Mexico but SPetty protested that not all Texans are oilman etc.

Now I am suggesting that Petty Point become the replacement 50th State. That should solve our problems with Texas.Let every city that wants to secede to PettyPoint.####

You brush away the reality of yet another of Bush's stupid, costly, devastating errors in judgment, and you dilute and twist the facts.

Look, I can understand how embarrassing it must be for folks like you, having to watch the news everynight, and see blunder after blunder, mistake after mistake, but don't expect the rest of us to twist everything around so that the chimp can look like he has a brain in his head.

You obviously are not informed about the timeline involved, when the Governor asked for federal emergency assistance, and when it finally arrived. Guess that you, like Bush, don't watch the news, huh? Guess you think that Michael Brown was a great choice on Bush's part for FEMA?

Guess you thought Barbara's statements were full of love, compassion and understanding for the poor?

NEWSFLASH....Bush admits responsibility for the failure of the Federal response.....even the chimp knows he was at fault....this is definately a first....I'm going to stock up on fire wood, there must be a blizzard coming this way, LOL.

I already admitted that it could have been handled better at ALL levels. Gee...so did the President. It's the local and state leaders who refuse to accept any responsibility for their own failures, prefering to pass them on up the line. But in this day an age, no one wants to accept responsibility for anything. (Oops, sorry! As you pointed out, the President is willing to accept responsibility for his failure....must be that "chimp brain" taking over. No one in his right mind would accept responsibility for anything!)

GW must have seen a sign on his desk that said "the buck stops here". It must have taken a room full of people to convince him that the buck was not $$$.
The Bush "apology" sounded more like "all the people below me failed me... and to the extent that I am boss, even though I did nothing wrong, I take responsibility for their failure".
The apology would ring much truer if Bush had said "I appointed all these inept political hacks who have shown the country that they are almost as inept as me...but let me make it perfectly clear...NO ONE can be more inept than me".

I don't see how the local representatives are nearly as responsible as the Federal people are. The failures on the local level would never have been so critical if they had gotten the money that they knew they needed in order to correct the levee system, and restore the wetlands. It seems many scientists and engineers were warning about it for years, but apparently, Bush didn't know this, since he stated that no one expected the levees to fail. They couldn't get the funding they needed to fix the problem. Bush, knew he couldn't wiggle out of this this time, and with his approval rating taking a dive, this is his new tactic, admit the mistake.

Subject: What happened in New Orleans
Date Sent: 12 Sep 2005 10:33 PM

Was President Bush Forced to Use the Insurrection Act?
Written by Barbara J. Stock
Tuesday, September 06, 2005

Hurricanes do not sneak up on people. Unlike tornadoes, hurricanes don’t just reach down out of the dark storm clouds to wreak havoc on humanity Hurricanes are tracked, named, have warning flags dedicated to them, and all coastal cities have long-standing plans for dealing with them. Nearly everyone in the world knew Katrina was going to hit Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, and yet so many have died in New Orleans. Why?

Hurricane Katrina struck the tip of southern Florida as a category 1 hurricane and made a beeline for the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. For three days Katrina churned her way across the Gulf, growing in size and strength until it was a monster storm. With sustained winds of over 175 mph, Katrina bore down on the city of New Orleans. Literally, at the last possible moment, Katrina was pushed, ever-so-slightly, by dry air from the Midwest, off to the East and dropped from a category 5 to a high category 4 with sustained winds of 150 mph. Katrina was still a killer storm by anyone’s description. For three long days, the governor of Louisiana and the mayor of New Orleans watched Katrina bear down on their state and city respectively but took very little action to protect their citizens other than to state the obvious: “Leave town.” No assistance was offered to the poor or elderly.

Aerial views of New Orleans have shown pictures of hundreds of buses, left parked and unused. Why didn’t the mayor of New Orleans activate those buses to move the people out of the city those who wanted to leave but had no way out? Why was this golden opportunity to save lives left parked, only to be lost to the floodwaters? This from the Louisiana disaster plan, pg. 13, paragraph 5, dated 01/00: “The primary means of hurricane evacuation will be personal vehicles. School and municipal buses, government-owned vehicles and vehicles provided by volunteer agencies may be used to provide transportation for individuals who lack transportation and require assistance in evacuating'...” Why was the city’s own disaster plan for using those buses to evacuate people not implemented? Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagging had three days to evacuate the poor and elderly from New Orleans but they did not. Why?

While the governors of both Mississippi and Alabama put in a formal request for federal assistance before Katrina even made landfall, the governor of Louisiana refused to relinquish any of her power for the good of the people. Now she and her party point the finger of blame at the White House.

Liberal bogs and websites are pointing to the Department of Homeland Security’s website which states that it can take control in any disaster, natural or otherwise, but this is not true. The Department of Homeland Security can only work with the state and local officials in organizing relief efforts such as food, water, and shelter. There is no military arm of the Department of Homeland Security or the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the military is what was needed and everyone knew that. Instead of asking why the Democratic leaders of Louisiana failed the people, these sites post disgusting pictures of floating bodies with the message: “George Bush did nothing.” The truth is, the Democratic governor wouldn’t allow Bush to do anything. That floating body belongs to Governor Blanco. She is the one who “did nothing.”

Roving bands of violent criminals quickly took control of the streets. While Mayor Nagging did declare martial law, it was a toothless declaration. The New Orleans police department was instantly overwhelmed. Many policemen just threw up their hands and walked off the job. Some joined the looters and were videotaped by MSNBC “shopping” in the local Walmart. The handful that was left on the job did their best but the best they could do was try to stay alive in a now lawless and dying city.
Because there was no one in charge, the initial rescue operations were feeble at best and there was chaos. The scope and magnitude of the disaster, which covers an area the size of Great Britain, still had not been realized by Governor Blanco who steadfastly refused to declare martial law and officially request that the federal government “send in the troops.”

It has come to light that all during the night on Friday, September 2, the president of the United States was forced to “negotiate” with Governor Blanco for the lives of the suffering and dying people of New Orleans. She feared that allowing the federal government to take control would make her administration appear as though it had failed. How she would be judged was more important to her than the lives of those people who were dying in the squalor. How many died as Blanco maneuvered to protect her reputation?

The Posse Comitatus Act prevents, by federal law, the president of the United States from sending federal troops into any state without the direct request of the elected governor of that state. A frustrated President Bush could only stand by and watch as the horror unfolded until he received the request for help. Despite the finger-pointing at President Bush, there was little that he could do until he was formally asked for assistance. No matter how loudly the liberals scream, they know full well that the president was helpless to do much of anything.

As the death toll rose and the animalistic behavior of some of those who chose to remain within the city became public knowledge, it was obvious that authorities needed to regain control. As the scenes from New Orleans, now a national disgrace, were being beamed around the world, a shameless Governor Blanco only cared about her own political image.

There is reason to believe that President Bush, running out of patience with Blanco by Saturday morning, used the only option that remained to him. It is being reported that Bush went around Blanco and utilized the Insurrection Act to federalize the National Guard and send in active military troops to take over the rescue and put down the lawlessness that had taken over New Orleans. The forces that Bush had poised to move into the city, swung into action. It was no accident that the major, organized rescues began when the sun came up on Saturday morning. At 6:30 AM, when the sky over New Orleans was suddenly filled with military helicopters and military convoys poured into the streets, they were there because of President Bush, not Governor Blanco.

The largest military evacuation the world has ever seen moved with the precision and efficiency that is only seen within the military. With men like Lt. General Russel Honore, 1st Army Commander and Army Brigadier General Mark Graham in charge, law and order was quickly restored, and an endless line of helicopters and boats began removing the stranded people and taking them out of the hell-hole called New Orleans. Those forces were ready to act because the President of the United States had positioned them to be ready.

Everyone demands answers and everyone wants to put the blame for this catastrophe on someone. The most convenient person to blame is President Bush. In truth, he is the least responsible on the local level. While the liberals feel this is the perfect time to make political hay because so many African-Americans are involved, the first line of defense for those people, the mayor of New Orleans, and governor of Louisiana, both Democrats, are the leaders that failed them. The people of New Orleans were abandoned by an arrogant governor and a hapless mayor as both struggled to save their own political careers. But, because they are both Democrats, the leftists want these ineffective leaders seen as helpless victims of a thoughtless and racist Bush who ignored their repeated pleas for help.

Mayor Nagging has been reduced to babbling about how the CIA is out to kill him because he “spoke his mind,” and Governor Blanco has become the invisible woman hoping that no one will notice that her gross incompetence and arrogance cost lives. But the left marches on, blaming President Bush because it knows it can. Most Americans are not aware of the laws preventing the federal government from “taking over” a city or a state.

The Democrats have closed ranks around their incompetent members and blame the president who was forced to “deal” with an inept governor. Governor Blanco’s thanks is to point the finger of blame back at the president when she knows the fault is her own

The Democratic Party could not possibly sink much lower than it has this past week. The mayor, the governor, and all those liberal websites, blogs, and shrieking leftist politicians should jump into the sewer water that now flows in the streets of New Orleans. That’s where they belong, with the rest of the floating waste. The Democratic or “Progressive” Party should be buried with the dead. Cause of death: Gross incompetence, asphyxiation from lies, and the failure to accept responsibility for the deaths of thousands of American citizens because power meant more to them than lives.

Barbara,
You may disagree with Gayle but why do you insult her?
We are adults here (I thought) and are entitled to have an opinion.
The "have another drink" comment is just out of line.
I don't care who started it, when it started, but to me this is simply juvenile... it belongs on a playground.
Is it possible to share differing opinions in an adult civilized manner?...can't we just agree to disagree?
