“What I’m hearing which is sort of scary is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this–this (chuckles slightly) is working very well for them.”
— Barbara Bush referring to the evacuees in the Astrodome, Labor Day 2005

Wow, she definitely is the source of Dubya’s “compassionate conservatism.” Barbara Bush basically said that the conditions in a large shelter are better than where the poor black people were before the storm. Oh, okay, the people that have lost everything they own, barely escaped the disaster with their lives, lost a few loved ones, and are now hundreds of miles away from everything they knew are now better off trying to sleep on a cot in the middle of the Astrodome. She even audibly chuckles during the interview as she lauds about how good they have it. Nice.

With this crazy woman as his mother, is it any wonder that the President behaves like Alfred E. Newman. He is totally detached from his emotions because of her. His “what me worry?” attitude towards the disaster is indicative of the beatdown he suffered under the hands of this woman as a child. Mind you, this doesn’t excuse his incompetence, it simply explains it.


  1. Truly callous. Hat tip to you for shedding light on just what a bitch Dubya’s Mommy is. No wonder her son is a jackass.
