Bush - Didn't Take Storm Predictions Seriously

Let's just cut to the chase and spell out what really has gone down in the Gulf states in the face of a predicted disaster. The path is so similar to 9/11 and the predicted warnings this criminal administration received - one is struck by the blithe, seemingly unaccountable reach of this
group. As Bush strolls about kissing survivors on the head and promising that they will have "zero tolerance for anyone trying to steal a loaf of bread or bottle of water..." after waiting FOUR days with neither.

In 2001, the Federal Emergency Management Agency ranked a major hurricane strike on New Orleans as "among the three likeliest, most catastrophic disasters facing this country," directly behind a terrorist strike on New York City.

Yesterday, disaster struck. One of the strongest storms in recorded history rocked the Gulf Coast, bringing 145 mph winds and floods of up to 20 feet. One million residents were evacuated; at least 65 are confirmed dead. Tens of thousands of homes were completely submerged. Mississippi's governor reported "catastrophic damage on all levels." Downtown New Orleans buildings were "imploding," a fire chief said. Oil surged past $70 a barrel. New Orleanians were grimly asking each other, "So, where did you used to live?" (To donate to Red Cross disaster relief, click here or call 1-800-HELP-NOW).

While it happened, President Bush decided to ... continue his vacation, stopping by the Pueblo El Mirage RV and Golf Resort in El Mirage, California, to hawk his Medicare drug benefit plan. On Sunday, President Bush said, "I want to thank all the folks at the federal level and the state level and the local level who have taken this storm seriously.” He’s not one of them. Below, the Progress Report presents

"How Not to Prepare for a Massive Hurricane," by President Bush, congressional conservatives, and their corporate special interest allies. SLASH SPENDING ON HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS IN NEW ORLEANS:

Two months ago, President Bush took an ax to budget funds that would have helped New Orleans prepare for such a disaster. The New Orleans branch of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers suffered a "record $71.2 million" reduction in federal funding, a 44.2 percent reduction from its 2001 levels. Reports at the time said that thanks to the cuts, "major hurricane and flood protection projects will not be awarded to local engineering firms. ... Also, a study to determine ways to protect the region from a Category 5 hurricane has been shelved for now." (Too bad Louisiana isn't a swing state. In the aftermath of Hurricane Frances -- and the run-up to the 2004 election -- the Bush administration awarded $31 million in disaster relief to Florida residents who didn't even experience hurricane damage.)

Now watch him grandstand kissing children, while Halliburton and their subsidiaries (all registered offshore of course) slather over the kick backs and the rebuild that will likely be directed their way. Of course young American (poor) boys and girls will be enlisted to aid the
vanguished and help the poor by joining the military...only to be swept off to Iraq to be part of the Halliburton Bechtel cannon fodder.

And the paid off corporate media of America plays right along, pretending they are mirroring decency, kindness and character.

Well the problem mr. bush and his media have now is that, like most of the world and black America....the rest of America is waking from the storm of propagandized pap..and they no longer take anything Bush says or does as anything but spin.
