This should send a real message to the people whose lives were changed last year by Katrina. Instead of worrying about the fact that 1000s of U.S. citizens were losing their lives while hundreds of thousands had lost their homes, the White House instead worried about who was taking the blame for the failures the storm exposed.
The former emergency management chief who quit amid widespread criticism over his handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina said he received an e-mail before his resignation stating President Bush was glad to see the Oval Office had dodged most of the criticism.
Michael Brown, former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Friday that he received the e-mail five days before his resignation from a high-level White House official whom he declined to identify.
A couple things here. First off, placing blame should not have even been brought up. Instead the White House should have focused solely on how to save the citizens down there and get the aide needed to those that desperately needed it. Hey George – WWJB (Who Whould Jesus Blame).
The second and most disturbing part is that the White House actually felt they weren’t getting that much blame for the failing disaster. This is the final proof that the White House watches FOX and no other news source.
Let’s go back to those horrible days following the disaster. FOX’s own Sam Sheppard and Geraldo Rivera appeared on Hannity and Colmes in tears about the death going on down there and the lack of help. You can view the video of this at Crooks and Liars. During that entire segment there was a definite attempt by Hannity to get the reporters to put blame onto local or state officials. They didn’t. Instead they blamed everyone.
Every other news channel out there were raising serious questions about the impact Iraq had on our National Guard and if that impact effected the response to rescue this nation’s own citizens. The news also questioned Bush’s decision to ignore the greatest natural disaster in this nation’s history and instead hop on over to California for some photo-ops.
Make no mistake about it. Everyone had some fault in the failures but the so called “Christian” White House, lead by the man who says he talks to God – George Bush are the ones who ignored what was happening and allowed people to die. If that is Christianity then it is no wonder more people are turning to Islam.
