Former President George W. Bush, whose legacy was marred by the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina, visited New Orleans today to mark the 10th anniversary of the tragedy.
Bush and his wife, Laura, arrived Friday morning at Warren Easton Charter High School, where they met with students as well as New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Kathleen Blanco, who was Louisiana's governor when Katrina hit in August 2005.
In a speech at the school, the former president said he will never forget the images of "misery and ruin" from Katrina. He said New Orleans was a city where "the levies gave out but ... [the] people never gave up."
Yeah, but their government sure did, didn't it Georgie?
If it wasn't for the media scrutiny and the resulting outrage I think the Bush administration would have simply let this whole city just wash away.
I cannot believe that Bush has the balls to show is face his face in New Orleans.
It kind of reminds me of an arsonist who stands next to the firetruck to watch the building he set on fire burn.
Worst President EVER!
