President Bush did not mention Katrina or the Katrina recovery during his State of the Union speech. Louisiana’s ruling class and the New Orleans based left-wing blogosphere are not pleased.
The incompetant so-called Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen “Maw Maw” Blank-o, who had this:
“I guess the pains of the hurricane are yesterday’s news in Washington,” Blanco said.
“But for us it’s still very real, very real, and it’s something that we live every single day,” the governor said. “But we will continue to fight, and we will continue to come on, and we will effect a recovery.”
When is Louisiana’s ruling class going to stop looking for a handout and start leading and rebuilding the state? It’s 17 months since the storm, it’s time to stop blaming Bush and start rebuilding.
