Among several similar quotes from different Bush Administration officials is this one from FEMA director Michael Brown today:
“…to help those who are stranded, who chose not to evacuate, who chose not to leave the city…”
They’re POOR. They didn’t “choose not to leave the city.” They have no cars, no money, and no way to leave the city, except on foot. And thousands of those people are aging, infirm, in wheelchairs or in hospitals. There are people DYING in intensive care right now, because they have no electricity, no medical staff, no supplies. You expected them to get out of bed and leave?
I keep picturing something like this happening to me, when I was in intensive care earlier this year — it’s a terrifying thought.
The people in the White House are EVIL. There’s just no other way to look at it.
