Hurricanes

TV shot of Bush as biggest disaster

I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68), 2005-09-01, on Good Morning America, six days after repeated warnings from experts about the scope of damage expected from Hurricane Katrina.
What didn’t go right?'
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68), 2005-09-07, as quoted by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), after she urged him to fire FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Director Michael Brown because of all that went wrong, of all that didn’t go right in the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.
We’ve got a lot of rebuilding to do … The good news is — and it’s hard for some to see it now — that out of this chaos is going to come a fantastic Gulf Coast, like it was before. Out of the rubbles of Trent Lott’s house— he’s lost his entire house — there’s going to be a fantastic house. And I’m looking forward to sitting on the porch.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68), 2005-09-02 Mobile, Ala., touring hurricane damage.
There’s no question that the minute I got elected, the storm clouds on the horizon were getting nearly directly overhead.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68), Washington, DC, 2001-05-11
At any rate, we look forward to working with you. Let me put it another way: We look forward to hearing your vision, so we can more better do our job. That’s what I’m telling you.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68), The White House, President’s Remarks at Governor’s Commission Briefing in Mississippi, 2005-09-20.
I believe that the great city of New Orleans will rise again and be a greater city of New Orleans. I believe the town where I used to come, from Houston, Texas, to enjoy myself — occasionally too much — will be that very same town, that it will be a better place to come to. That’s what I believe.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68), The White House, MediaChannel, In Bush’s World, PR Equals Action, Simon Dumenco, 2005-09-13.
Listen, I want to thank leaders of the — in the faith — faith-based and community-based community for being here.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68), The White House, President Meets with Representatives from National Voluntary Organizations, 2005-09-06.
Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 68), The White House, Praising Michael Brown, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the morning after he revealed, in a network television interview, that he did not know about the thousands of people stranded at New Orleans convention center until a day after extensive media reports on the situation. The Steady Buildup to a City’s Chaos Confusion Reigned At Every Level of Government, Spencer S. Hsu and Susan B. Glasser, Washington Post, 2005-09-11.
Considering the dire circumstances that we have in New Orleans, virtually a city that has been destroyed, things are going relatively well.
~ Michael DeWayne (Brownie) Brown (born: 1954-11-08 age: 59) FEMA Director 2005-09-01
Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?
~ Tom DeLay (born: 1947-04-08 age: 67) House Majority Leader, (R-TX), 2005-09-09 to three young hurricane evacuees from New Orleans at the Astrodome in Houston.
Well, I think if you look at what actually happened, I remember on Tuesday morning picking up newspapers and I saw headlines, 'New Orleans Dodged the Bullet.' Because if you recall, the storm moved to the east and then continued on and appeared to pass with considerable damage but nothing worse.
~ Michael Chertoff (born: 1953-11-28 age: 60), Homeland Security Secretary, 2005-09-04, blaming media coverage for the government’s failings, Meet the Press
I mean, you have people who don’t heed those warnings and then put people at risk as a result of not heeding those warnings. There may be a need to look at tougher penalties on those who decide to ride it out and understand that there are consequences to not leaving.
~ Rick Santorum (born: 1958-05-10 age: 56), senator, (R-PA), 2005-09-06
You simply get chills every time you see these poor individuals… many of these people, almost all of them that we see are so poor and they are so black, and this is going to raise lots of questions for people who are watching this story unfold.
~ Wolf Blitzer (born: 1948-03-22 age: 66), CNN (Cable News Network), 2005-09-01 on New Orleans’ hurricane evacuees.
I’m going to go home and walk my dog and hug my wife, and maybe get a good Mexican meal and a stiff margarita and a full night’s sleep…
~ Michael DeWayne (Brownie) Brown (born: 1954-11-08 age: 59) head of FEMA, 2005-09-09.
We just learned of the convention center — we being the federal government — today…
~ Michael DeWayne (Brownie) Brown (born: 1954-11-08 age: 59) head of FEMA. 2005-09-12, reported in The Chicago Sun Times.
Hurricane Corrina…

And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this — this (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them.
~ Barbara Bush (born: 1925-06-08 age: 89), 2005-09-05, on the hurricane evacuees at the Astrodome in Houston, source
Go fuck yourself.
~ a Mississipian to Dick Cheney, 2005-09-08, referring to Cheney’s famous remark of 2004-06-25, reported in the Washington Post.
