The 2005 Marie Antoinette Awards

From today's Chicago Tribune:

Former First Lady Barbara Bush, who toured the Astrodome and met hurricane evacuees Monday in Houston, may have tried to put too cheerful a spin on what has occurred in the last week.

"Almost everyone I have talked to says, `We're going to move to Houston,'" she said in remarks to National Public Radio's "Marketplace."

"What I'm hearing is they all want to stay in Texas," she said. "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 is working very well for them."

You almost... almost feel badly for old W. Here he is, overseeing the worsening of the largest preventable loss of American lives (ok ok - I know he oversaw others) and then Moms pops off with that gem. The only good news in it for W is that now he is competing for the 2005 Marie Antoinette award - with his mom.
That apple certainly didn't fall far from the self-absorbtion tree.

I posted about that comment too. I cannot believe she had the audacity to say such a thing. I hope an apology comes some time.

I had to find an actual source for this, but I will have it posted son as well. I think those comments are disgusting.

BTW, thanks for the link :)

Absolutely no problem. I had actually heard it on CNN and then went out to Google News to locate a reference so I could steak it and put it on my blog. ;-)

Where were any of your readers during the reign of Ex President Busy Pants. Just wondering!

I'm digging this site.

When a president takes over 330 vacation days in five years some things are bound to catch up with ya.

Thanks for linking to me.
