That said…

I thought I may feel better today. I don’t. I doubt you do as well. Bits of phrases run through my head still…Americans voted for change last November…Prez at 30% approval…almost 2/3 of Americans supported a timetable…72% think we’re on the wrong track…Americans want leadership…They want OUT of Iraq…Man the Dems blew it big time.

I’m disgusted.

That said…I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that the bill which passed did 2 good things for New Orleans. First it waives the 10% match requirement that has held up Gulf Coast recovery. Second it replaces about a billion dollars which the Bush administration had shifted away from
raising and armoring levees. It appears Bush understands these 2 measures, which he has opposed in the past, are part of the deal. All the same I will be watching for any signing statement.
