War President /Vacation President- Bush ends his two month vacation a little early to view the damage from Katrina


  • Great collection of pictures.

    It's a shame those people have to go through what they are going through right now. I hope there is an investigation into this whole ordeal and President Bush is jailed.

    Everyone knew those levees could only handle a category 3 type Hurricane and this was known to be a category 5 storm like a week before it actually hit- Deffinately the most evil red neck racist president in American history.

    Hardcore George Bush fans, open your eyes and stop being ignorant. This guy has screwed up so many times and now it's cost thousands of people their lives. How can he fight the war on terror when he can't even protect his own American citizens on US soil? Instead of saying, "Oh, the left hates the president no matter what". Try reading something besides Fox news and you might actually learn something.

  • This reminds me so much of the old story of Nero playing the fiddle as Rome burned. In this case the great emporer plays guitar as New Orleans drowns... so erie you wonder if it was intentional...

  • Hey, does anybody realize that Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and not New Orleans? New Orleans was flooded and conditions are horrible there - no doubt. However, how is the condition of the levees George Bush's problem? The levees in N.O. have been like this for years through many prior presidents. Why when the mayor and governor of New Orleans were given federal funds to shore up the levees, was the money spent elsewhere? Some responsibility needs to be placed on the government of LA. This was a natural disaster and nobody should be blamed. Also, why make this a racial issue? Nobody would intentionally withhold help from any victim of this disaster. Mississippi's coastline is obliterated. Electricity was lost to 85% of the state during the storm. Many people still do not have electricity or water or shelter. Mississippi has a large black population as well as N.O. Nobody here is shooting at our rescuers or shouting profanity at them. This storm is not a racial issue. Everyone in it's path has been affected in some way or another. 35% of Mississippians are homeless. We are thanking everybody who has helped us and are helping each other. No thanks to the media for coverage or lack thereof. I for one am thankful for the federal government's assistance as well as the many, many individual and group efforts. Quit placing blame and do something to help or shut-up!!!!

  • You have to careful not to critcise someone when you weren't in their shoes. You are treading on thin ice to make any comparison. Help is now here and just because Bush didn't respond as quickly as he should have doesn't give license for comments left on this page

  • Kelley...In response to your levee restoration, please refer to several budgetary laws passed by the Clinton administration that allowed for nearly 55 million in federal funds which were later slashed from the budget by the Bush administration. This money was not squandered by the City of New Orleans OR the State of Louisiana, it was taken back by Congress and approved by President Bush. Originally, the funds were assigned to the Army Corp of Engineers (who are ultimately responsible for the maintenance of the levees) and then were revoked for redistribution. I'm certain that those dollars were "more wisely spent" on the military efforts in Iraq.

  • According to one official there in New Orleans, the funds that where for shoring up the levee was spent to build some bridge. That I seen on cnn.

  • Most presidents take at least 30 days each summer as did George W. Clinton usually went to Marthas Vinevard, George HW went to kenebunkport (sp) and Reagon went to California etc. The Bush White House has responded as quickly and efficiently to the disasters during his presidency as any of his predecessors. The difference is that he is not interested in Photo ops and polls like Jesse and Bill. Get your facts straight before you criticize and thank God that Kerry was not elected because I doubt that he even knows where Mississippi is. And watch your mouth, because I grew up in Mississippi and lived 9 years in Louisiana and I have been there twice doing what little I could in relief since Katrina hit. Use your energy to help those who need it and quit blaming the hurricane on the president. If you live in NOLA (1) you need to find a good candidate for mayor and (2)for governor because the two you have now don't know what to do but blame other people for their shortcomings. Much of the news reporting from NOLA was not accurate as to when aid was recieved and order was restored. The people who stayed tell a different story than CNN and Friends. This is a natural disaster and the people I saw there helping to relieve the pain were not politicians of one party or another, they were from all parts of the country donating their time and resources to feed, clothe, furnish housing, restore power, treat many physical and mental ailments and to help bring things back to normal as soon as they can. When you criticize and blame someone else you become part of the political problem and believe me, the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast don't need any politics, they need help. So become part of the solution and volunteer some time or money to help those people out. Things will get better faster by doing that rather than playing the blame game. The real reason for the problems in NOLA and on the coast was the hurricane and all we can do is help out and build it back.

  • You guys are focusing too much on Bush and he isn't focusing on any of the right issues, he's a jackass. He isn't going to help the people of New Orleans or Mississippi for that matter, we as Americans and I as a Texan have to rise up and help, which is exactly what Texans are doing. Bush isn't going to do shit but vacay!
