Hurricane Politics

It took just three days for politics to reveal its ugly head concerning Hurricane Katrina.

Today the Congressional Black Caucus all but directly stated that New Orleans residents were not receiving help quickly because they are poor and black. Half the democrats in congress are blaming the hurricane's severity on global warming, and thus Pres. Bush because he would not sign the Kyoto treat.

Can't we simply concentrate on saving people before the politicians try to score points for their relection? Their actions are disgusting and these people should be called on the carpet for the actions.

I was listening to the news on the radio this morning and, although I don't remember the exact wording of the story, the sentiment was something like, "President Bush is scheduled to land in Louisiana today, so now things will finally get moving."

That's just as bad as all of the politicizing on the other side of the fence. The implication was that (a) nothing was being done yet, and (b) once the President sees all the damage, he'll give the okay for all of the real rescuing to start.

Also, maybe he brought is ax from his ranch so he can help clear debris.
