So, how much have you heard of an historic nuclear energy agreement between the US and India brokered by President Bush and his team while visiting there the past couple of days?
How much have you heard about the "secret" stop in Afghanistan and the Afghanistan people praising President Bush for being their liberator and hero? The first president to visit Afghanistan since President Eisenhower, by the way.
How much have you heard about reform pushed to the front of the agenda at the UN, thanks to the energy of Ambassador John Bolton? You remember, that evil man John Bolton, don't you?
How much have you heard about the video tapes put out there by the AP to show the administration's actions leading up to Hurricane Katrina, which in fact show the administration in place and prepared? How much have you heard of Gov. Blanco telling the President and FEMA that the levees hadn't breeched and may not, even though this conversation took place a good 4 hours after the levees did, in fact, breech? But it is the sole responsibility of the administration in Washington, DC to control a natural disaster?
Just a little perspective, people. That's all I ask.
The local news stations here in our fine city have now for the past two nights talked about the video tapes and asked Katrina evacuees their thoughts on how the administration handled the situation. Not their mayor or governor, or even themselves, mind you, just the administration in Washington, DC. Of course they think the president should be impeached and all that utter nonsense.
No personal responsibility with these folks. They have all been healthy looking, capable people from what I have seen on camera. Just waiting for "the government" to do everything for them.
My question is - what were they doing to take care of themselves waiting for the storm to come? No preparation, no plan, just expect "the government" to do for you. Then complain afterwards because it didn't all go smoothly for you. Don't blame yourself for your life. Blame the president. Blame FEMA.
Personal responsibility. What a concept.
