Empty Field of Dreams

This is why we can never have anything nice. One million dollars donated by private entities gone and an empty field to show for it.

2. Sure was, and Bush rolled over and let it happen

Even though the federal government is not a first responder in natural disasters, Bush bowed under the negative media hype they showered upon him and allowed billions of federal dollars to flow into New Orleans where the democrat governor oversaw programs that abused the response with corrupt politicians leading the way. Mary Landrieu, democrat senator, was one of the biggest fraudsters.

Emotions overtook common sense. A compassionate nation demanded that the feds "make it right" by paying for people's houses, when they had no insurance. Interestingly enough, people that did have insurance didn't get a dime of federal money.

FEMA was STILL building schools and hospitals for the "needy," 7, 8, 9 years after the storm. They built a new high school for the Archdiocese of New Orleans, a private school, in a different neighborhood. (one that also flooded).

But then, Obama could just print more money, right?

3. Yep, he didn't want to get labeled as being a racist...

...even though racism had nothing to do with stupid people living below sea level nor the idiot mayor of ''chocolate city'' not following his own evac plan.

4. Democrats played the race card to the hilt

After a while, I had to check to make sure the storm did NOT make landfall on the black 9th Ward. Turns out, it didn't.

5. They use what works, sadly too many people lap it up without ever checking to see if it's true...

...hence you have the dem-lefties aka the democratic party.
