Obama is still attacking Bush
The White House ^ | 20-Jan-2009 | Obama

Posted on 01/20/2009 6:52:23 PM PST by Sgt_Schultze

Katrina

President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.

President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration's "unconscionable ineptitude" in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips to the region. He worked with members of the Congressional Black Caucus to introduce legislation to address the immediate income, employment, business, and housing needs of Gulf Coast communities.

President Barack Obama will partner with the people of the Gulf Coast to rebuild now, stronger than ever.

What a petulent little clod.

Today is the first day of this loser's administration. His accountability for everything that happens during this administration begins today.

He’s a paranoid little Chicago thug. He’ll be attacking Bush, Sarah and Trig Palin and Dick Cheney for the next for years. We need to get used to it. Every mistake the “messiah” makes will be Bush’s fault.

Isn’t New Orleans below sea level? What’s O going to do to fix that? Isn’t the Mississippi coast almost completely rebuilt?

As much as I detest this guy, I have to think that the wording of this (”broken promises of the Bush administration”) is a direct reflection of the shockingly - but not unexpected - vitriolic corp that is now part of this new administration. I hope that Obama removes this wording.

I don’t recall obama ever actually visiting LA or MS. Not saying he didn’t, but I don’t recall it and it didn’t have any impact if he did. President Bush on the other hand has been here many times.

Sorry, P.O., YOU are now the one to get blamed. Get over it. President Bush has paid his dues and put up with crap from the media long enough.

There is more to it than just classlessness, although that’s definitely a big factor. The Obama admin along with the media will not let Bush be forgotten easily. The longer the memories of Bush are kept alive, the longer they can continue to blame Bush for all their screwups. And there are plenty of them coming..

For this type of politicized wording to be part of the official White House website, is schockingly unreal. So totally ‘un-Presidential’.

Fitting that the error of Obama begins with lies.

One word you will never associate with Obama and that word is character.

“broken promises—catastrophic failures-— Bush Administration’s “unconscionable ineptitude”

What happened to all the coming together of today’s speech? This sounds like the same hate that comes from MSNBC. Such over the top rude, exaggerations will make this a long four years.

"Obama is still attacking Bush BUT Bush is still afraid to attack O’bama"

Bush can't really attack Hussien, because Hussien hasn't really ever done anything...

Obama is such an empty suit, it makes him a hard target. Of course his past associations were enough to deny him office this year, had he only been running against a competent opposition campaign not named McCain.

. . . then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims . . .

Would that include having school buses available for the evacuation since low-income residents may not have cars? Would that possibly include the same buses that NO's Democrat mayor and LA's Democrat governor refused to use because they weren't equipped with full toilets on board? Did it ever occur to them that in an emergency a 5 gallon pail (retail: $3.99 from Home Depot) and a sheet for privacy would serve the purpose a whole lot better than no busses at all?

Isn’t it unconstitutional for the federal government to bust into a state without an invite?

Forgive me. I forget easily. In the White House (or is it now the black house?)The Constitution is hanging on the toilet paper holder.

You're probably right. I wouldn't be surprised to see BHO's approval ratings chart look something like GWB's in a few years.

I don’t recall obama ever visiting New Orleans either. In fact, since he hails from an oppressed minority race, I’m surprised he hasn’t publicly praised Bush for caring enought to liberate other oppressed groups. What the fu$k has Obama ever done to help the people of Kenya, Iraq, or Afghanistan. He’ll probably try to take credit for Iraq.

He has screwed up from day one, even mucked up his oath......couldn’t even repeat what Chief Justice Roberts told him to say.....:o)

Obama should move to New Orleans, buy a mansion and start to help fix up the place. It could be his summer White House (or winter White House might be better) I bet you can pick up an old mansion in the ninth ward for cheap. Then fix it up. The reporters, security, would help the city rebuild—and having the president living there would help with tourism. Besides—they have some great restaurants and they know how to party there. He could do photo ops with the black mayor and just help to re-invigorate the Big Easy. Obama would find himself at home with all the corruption. By moving there he could put his money where his mouth is and help the city revive. After his one term is over he could put his Library there in New Orleans as a tourist attraction.

Just a seething hatred for President Bush. It's all they've got.

Let's see how that plays for another four years...

I already called my congressman about this and complained. A government website is no place for partisan politics. Let alone, the White House web site.

I used the old Ronald Reagan line: “I paid for this web site”!

I found this absolutely disgusting...I guess I might have to get used to that feeling.
