Response

Matt asked a good question: what was my reaction to Bush’s interview?  To put it nicely, his reasons for not even mentioning Hurricane Katrina is bullshit. So he says there’s been money given to the area and its people. Well, great, he should have let the nation know that improvements have been made. The only thing is, he undoubtedly knows that not enough attention/aid has really been given and that’s probably why it wasn’t mentioned. He, along with others, does not like to remind people of his past mistakes.

People are still living in FEMA trailers and luckily there has been an extension for those residents.  They were going to have to be out of them by this month and then have no place to live. Now they have until August to find somewhere else other than this trailer that many people reside in for a week or so on vacation.

So Bush didn’t mention Katrina and I’m over it now. I give him some lee-way though, seeing that he has defend his belief in something that most of the country disagrees with. I’m just hoping that this doesn’t turn out to be another “mistake”.

Annnd I’m done ranting.

Bush Interview

I was driving home from school the other night and I had a couple hours ahead of me.  I randomly turned to NPR news (which I definitely was called a dork after admitting this in class the next day), and an interview with President Bush was being given.  The interview asked a lot of questions concerning the State of the Union Address.  He was confronted about not even mentioning Hurricane Katrina.  Ballsy.

P.S. NPR rocks. no shame.
