Cafferty transcript, CNN, 9/1/05:
“The thing that’s most glaring in all this is that the conditions continue to deteriorate for the people who are victims in this, and the efforts to do something about it don’t seem to be anywhere in sight. I want to read you something, Wolf. This is a quote from an editorial:
‘A better leader would have flown straight to the disaster zone and announced the immediate mobilization of every available resource. The cool, confident intuitive leadership Bush exhibited in his first term, particularly in the months following 9/11, has vanished.’
Now that’s not from some liberal rag; that is an editorial from one of the most conservative newspapers in the country, New Hampshire’s Union Leader.
I believe I just heard Stephanie Miller refer to a Jack Cafferty rant comparing the slow response of Bush and the Republican Congress to Hurricane Katrina with their rapid response to Teri Schiavo. Congress returned on a Sunday and Bush immediately cut his vacation short.
Too bad New Orleans doesn’t have any cute, sympathetic white girls in distress.
