Rep. Boustany got the memo

This was Boustany three days ago:
Rep. Charles W. Boustany Jr., (R-La.), said he spent the past 48 hours urging the Bush administration to send help. "I started making calls and trying to impress upon the White House and others that something needed to be done," he said. "The state resources were being overwhelmed, and we needed direct federal assistance, command and control, and security -- all three of which are lacking."
This was Boustany today.
"Most of the red tape and problems have been at the state level. I have to say that the federal response has been focused on new orleans with search and rescue operations which is going very, very well at this stage. but we've had a completely ineffectual state response and this is being borne by the local communities to help now. and I have asked the president to take this into consideration, consider that the state response is completely ineffectual and the full range of social and health care needs needs to be met.
One can only imagine how Rove put the fear of God into this spineless twerp.

Please remember that Karen Hughes is back on staff for Bush and largely responsible for getting the bimbos to walk in lock step fact or not about what they want said in the press.

The CNN and FOX news stations and even the locals - and even our QC papers get the message very quickly loud and clear. The amazing thing for me is that this time they blew it and it took a couple days to get it all lined up. They are not as cohesive as they have been in the past.

Karen Hughes must have not seen this one coming. She probably thought as Bush did that it was a part of the country that no one cared about.

Bad move - bad decision but they did recover themselves masterfully. So sad - people will not realize how we are being played in this game.

Knowledge is power - power is knowledge.
