Newsflash: Bush's Compassion Extends to White Hurricane Victims
According to the New York Times, Bush did not"interact much with storm victims," and nor, in particular, did he "go into the heart of the city's devastation, where thousands of largely poor, black refugees have raged at the government's response to one of the worst natural disasters in American history." The paper further notes that Bush "steered clear of the streets of New Orleans, whose stricken population could not be counted on to hail him with open arms."
Bush was able to muster some compassionate conservatism for poor Trent Lott, who seems to have lost one of his homes in the flooding in Missisippi. -- and apparently for the pre-screened white folks seen in the photo, left, as well.
