Bush Strummed While New Orleans Drowned

Jon Stewart's Daily Show manages to do an interesting piece on the travels of President Bush as Katrina came ashore and the following aftermath. As New Orleans filled with water, Bush was off giving a couple of speeches in other parts of the country that had nothing to do with Katrina.

The Bush chain of events during this critical time in the Gulf Coast region and the city of New Orleans seems to me to be so telling of the Bush character.This is the Bush version of compassionate conservatism we've seen in so many instances, great and small.

We have become an imitation of the worst of the Roman Empire. Remember the classic line of Rome leadership indifference to its citizens. Nero fiddled while Rome burned.

Bush strummed while New Orleans drowned.
