It doesn't take a weatherman to see which way the wind blows

Bush Says Relief Results 'Not Acceptable' - Yahoo! News:

President Bush, facing blistering criticism for his administration's response to Hurricane Katrina, said Friday 'the results are not acceptable' and pledged to bolster relief efforts with a personal trip to the Gulf Coast.

...

'There's a lot of aid surging toward those who've been affected. Millions of gallons of water. Millions of tons of food. We're making progress about pulling people out of the Superdome,' the president said.

For the first time, however, he stopped defending his administration's response and criticized it. 'A lot of people are working hard to help those who've been affected. The results are not acceptable,' he said. 'I'm heading down there right now.'

Bush hoped that his tour of the hurricane-ravaged states would boost the spirits of increasingly desperate storm victims and their tired rescuers...

Sure, that's what they need, having their spirits bolstered.

...and they're being shipped "millions of tons of food"? Is that possible?

  • "millions of tons of food."

    The population of New Orleans is 484,400. Two million tons (which is the minimum to qualify as 'millions') would be four billion pounds.

    Four billion pounds divided by a population of 500,000 would be 8000 pounds of food per person.

    You thought water was bad, try surviving a flood of bouillabaisse!

  • Asking the prez to do simple math is way out of line for this simpleton,
    he can hardly speak without
    reading Chaney's lips.
