This administration must get a discount if they buy in bulk – and they must LOVE THEM because their feet are ALWAYS in their mouths:
From the Washington Post
“In New Orleans, “you are dealing with the permanently poor — people who don’t have jobs, are not used to getting up and organizing themselves and getting things done and for whom sitting and waiting is a way of life,” says Linda Chavez, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity and a former head of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. “This is a natural disaster that is exacerbated by the problems of the underclass. The chief cause of poverty today among blacks is no longer racism. It is the breakdown of the traditional family.”
“As President Bush battled criticism over the response to Hurricane Katrina, his mother declared it a success for evacuees who “were underprivileged anyway,” saying on Monday that many of the poor people she had seen while touring a Houston relocation site were faring better than before the storm hit.
“What I’m hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas,” Barbara Bush said in an interview on Monday with the radio program “Marketplace.” “Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality.”
“And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway,” she said, “so this is working very well for them.”
I do try VERY HARD not to think very hard about these ARSES that are in power. But with someone making statements like that who is the president of Equal Opportunity… how much opportunity do they really have??? When she’s basically written the off as active functioning parts of the human race… *shaking my head*
It just won’t ever make sense to me…
