O.K...? If that is what Kanye said then you both sound like idiots.
But I'm pretty sure he said that "George Bush doesn't care about black people."
How was he way off base by saying that. The vast majority of the people affected by Katrina were black people and Bush did an absolutely disgraceful job at protecting and aiding them.
Either he doesn't care about black people, or he is tremendously incompetent. What's worse?
And what is the hypocrisy of the Democratic argument?
Was it just black people who got the short end of the aid stick after Katrina?
I think N.O. got the worse of being left unaided. But I think Mississippi wasnt taken care of very well, either. Altho Miss. got way more help than N.O.
Race may have been a part of it. But I think politics may have been more. N.O. is Democratic and the rabid Republicanism and stupidity of this Administration is likely to have been more of a factor on who got aid and who didn't.
Republicans have never been known to be able to govern. They are too inflexible. They can only see issues in black and white. They are immobilized if they have to operate outside of dogma.
Which is why for 40 years the Congress was Democratic. You can't run a Congress if you can't compromise. Republicans don't do well outside of being president, where they can have a set-in-concrete platform. But they don't survive unless they have a Democratic Congress to save them from their own excesses.
