Bush Takes “Full Responsibility” For Katrina Response

The only reason Bush is saying this at all is because he knows it is meaningless.

It's complete bullshit, we have tape of Bush joking that he was glad that another person was under the spotlight instead of himself.
That was a year ago.

So Bush you are responsible, lets see what that means:
  • Less than half of the city’s pre-storm population of 460,000 has returned, putting the population at roughly what it was in 1880.
  • Nearly a third of the trash has yet to be picked up.
  • Sixty percent of homes still lack electricity.
  • Seventeen percent of the buses are operational.
  • Half of the physicians have left, and there is a shortage of 1,000 nurses.
  • Six of the nine hospitals remain closed.
  • Sixty-six percent of public schools have reopened.
  • A 40 percent hike in rental rates, disproportionately affecting black and low-income families.
  • A 300 percent increase in the suicide rate.
  • Eighty-four percent of New Orleans residents rate the government’s recovery efforts negatively, while 66 percent believe the recovery money has been “mostly wasted.”
  • A disproportionate number of Black people have been affected, could not return. While the whiter richer areas are starting to come back.

Looks like George Bush is a racists.

George Bush,
Your fired. Don't let the door hit you on the ass.

To keep this in perpective the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake the earthquake and fire that destroyed the entire city. Back in 1906 with no heilocopters, no bulldozers, no cars. It took 1 year to rebuild the city.
