PRESIDENT SPEAKS [John Derbyshire]
Just saw W’s address on his way to Marine One. It reinforced the impression that Katrina is bad, bad for him. “The results are not acceptable,” he said lamely. Well, obviously. Don’t the feds have legions of troops, flights of helicopters, warehouses full of food…? Where are they? What the hell use is the federal government?
It impacts everything. “Where’s the National Guard?” asked Shep Smith yesterday. To the minds of several million people watching him, the answer must have occurred, as it did to me: “Oh, they’re in Iraq…” Sure, that’s not altogether fair, but the thought was hard to resist.
