That isn't what happened.
Also, this mess in N.O. hasn't even begun to get cleaned up and he's already running his mouth.
You are absolutely correct.
Pres. GW Bush offered help to Governor Blanco on TWO occasions and she refused federal intervention.
The mayor of New Orleans was upset because the buses available to evacuate citizens of his city were school buses and not plusher.
When summoned to Congress to discuss Katrina and her aftermath, both appeared only under the condition that the subject of their actions (or inactions) NOT be discussed.
They got a free pass to denigrate Pres. Bush when in fact he reached out to them immediately and his help was refused.
That fact surrounding the impact of Katrina has been ignored by the media but should be expressed every time anyone accuses Pres. Bush of not responding appropriately.
That’s what I thought also. I am sure I heard Bush declare a disaster 3 days before the hurricane hit. I recall Fox mentioning it in a newscast.
