As you addressed the nation, Andrew Jackson turned over in his grave. Mr. President, flying over the Gulf Coast region is not going to give you a first hand perspective or "scope" of the devastation. Mr. President, the San Diego campaign fundraising event for John McCain, a man who once wanted your job, does not deserve your time if one million people in one of our nation's cities don't have homes. Waiting three days after a natural disaster is not excusable and praising a man for doing "one heck of a job" is ridiculous when days later the man is taken off the job, resigns, and the nation learns the "scope" of his corruption.
The blame for Hurricane Katrina cannot be placed on anyone, for it was merely an act of God. Not an act against corrupt and unrighteous, but a natural disaster. If we are to believe that our government is prepared for a terrorist attack of massive proportions on our home soil, prove it to us by being prepared in the face of a natural disaster.
FEMA has failed, Homeland Security is weak, the President of the United States is slow in responding. It is time to put the money we've placed in a country that has no WMDs into our own country. An investigation into Katrina will only aid more division. Don't waste the Congress' time on something that will only point at a weak internal structure and a weak administration. Your glory days of 80% approval ratings are over and never to return.
Maybe when stating "God Bless America" at the end of your speeches you should be considering the reason for which He acts as He does.
