Whether he does nothing or jumps in with both feet, the leader of the free world can’t help but mess things up. Three tons of food ready for delivery by air to hurricane Katrina refugees in sat immobile Friday afternoon as all air traffic was halted because of President Bush’s visit to New Orlean. Arrangements had been made to airlift food by helicopter, and the food sat in trucks because helicopters were not permitted to fly until the president left.
The food was expected to be in the hands of storm survivors after the president left the devastated region Friday night. You mean he didn’t wait around for a photo-op meal or two with some of the survivors? Amazing. Mahalo to my Celtic cousin Scott for the link.
