Skip to comments.Obama is still attacking Bush

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.
Today is the first day of this loser's administration. His accountability for everything that happens during this administration begins today.
Classless Chicago thug.
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.
Surely this is satire. The man isn’t this stupid. Is he?
Obama is still attacking Bush BUT Bush is still afraid to attack O’bama...
Isn’t New Orleans below sea level? What’s O going to do to fix that? Isn’t the Mississippi coast almost completely rebuilt?
He's the miracle man. Didn't you get the memo?
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.
...alas, there will be NO Republican that will fight back or stand up for Bush. Get ready for 8 years!
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..
“classless chicago thug.”
correction: “classless, irresponsible, chicago thug.”
This is the OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE GOVERNMENT SITE.
No, it’s not satire.
The whole next four years will seem like satire though.
If I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for him to take off these words. No way someone put them up without his knowledge.
For this type of politicized wording to be part of the official White House website, is schockingly unreal. So totally ‘un-Presidential’.
I suppose the only answer to your question is ... yes.
“Isnt the Mississippi coast almost completely rebuilt?”
Far from it.
The campaign is over, ya putz. Do something constructive. Hell, just do *something*.
Oh sheesh I don’t even use this language but FU Barry, just F off. Let me get off FR and go listen to some Jack Hyles sermons before I bust a gut. My quick prayer, Dear God, have mercy on those of us who love and worship and you, and MAKE IT STOP!
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.
He can’t fix thousands of ignorant people.
Incredibly, it does actually say it.
If he keeps this up, the 76% approval rating won’t last long.
I actually wish Bush had done more of this in 2001 regarding Bubba and his ineptitude. Especially on Terrorism...
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.
And because there is NO Republican who will or has stood up for President Bush, they will not get a penny from me.
They are ALL cowards!
Moses was able to deal with this problem. Obama should have no trouble either.
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: $3.99 from Home Depot) and a sheet for privacy would serve the purpose a whole lot better than no busses at all?
Isn’t it unconstitutional for the federal government to bust into a state without an invite?
Forgive me. I forget easily. In the White House (or is it now the black house?)The Constitution is hanging on the toilet paper holder.
>> No way someone put them up without his knowledge.
I’m not sure I agree. I am going to archive the pages. We’ll see if the vitriol is still up there in a few days.
I don’t recall obama ever visiting New Orleans either. In fact, since he hails from an oppressed minority race, I’m surprised he hasn’t publicly praised Bush for caring enought to liberate other oppressed groups. What the fu$k has Obama ever done to help the people of Kenya, Iraq, or Afghanistan. He’ll probably try to take credit for Iraq.
Hey Precedent Hussein ..... it’s been almost 12 hours since you took the reins to this goobermint mule and 40 acres and nuthin is fixed yet !! Funny as it ain’t the Obamanination has no one to blame now. But he will try as he isn’t about accountability or responsibility. 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)
Clown College is in session and I ain’t laughing !
There that was easy... for a new president that has a big bag of nothing.
You mean you don’t know? He will (as the messiah) stand on the edge of the city and command it to rise 15 feet thus solving the flooding problems forever. All hail the 0!
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.
That’s all I got to say.
One never hears about Mississippi, so I didn’t know. All one hears about in the news is how bad off N.O. is.
Funny, they always seem to forget the horrendous aftermath of Hurricane Floyd during Clinton’s watch...I just don’t know how that happens...effing hypocrites.
Yo obozo, the pot calling the kettle black (pun intended). And here you were campaigning on bringing about change but instead you who have absolutely no experience whatsoever persistently engage in Bush Bashing. You have no shame, you fraud. You’ll get your comeuppance.
Absolutely classless. I’m not surprised at the Chicago thug.
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.
Plenty of people around here still attack GWB, too.
