Katrina never mentioned in The State of the Union
I have a long play-by-play analysis of the State of the Union speech that I will put up shortly, but my initial reaction to the speech sums up my overall impression of it:
THIS BASTARD DID NOT MAKE ONE MENTION OF THE GREATEST DOMESTIC CRISIS TO EVER OCCUR ON AMERICAN SOIL: HURRICANE KATRINA!!!!
I guess Kanye was right. I never liked G. W. Bush, but I for damn sure cannot stand him now. He talked all this noise about helping people, and about helping Iraqis, and about helping Africans. Why no talk about helping “AMERICANS?”
This is disgusting. I dare someone to defend his purposeful exclusion of Hurricane Katrina in a speech on domestic policy.
Any presidential hopeful that does not call out and talk about how terrible this is will not get my vote in 2008. Period.
