96 hours after Katrina

Katrina hit 4 days ago:

George W. Bush, today: "We're going to stabilize the situation, and then get food and medicine and water."

Ya know, I wonder if the situation is NOT stable because no one had a plan to get food and medicine and water in there sooner?

Bush also said "right now we need to get food and clothes and medicine to the people"

No, George, food and clothes and medicine needed to get there 4 DAYS ago."

Bush also thanked and applauded Sen. Trent Lott (R), Thad Cochran (R) and Governor Haley Barbour (R). He did NOT mention Rep. Gene Taylor (D), who represents the Mississippi Coast in the House of Representatives.

I couldn't agree with you more. Supplies should have been there days ago. If the folks suffering there weren't largely poor and black, I don't believe we would have seen such an inexcusable delay.
