"This is working very well for them."

Would you like a glimpse into the mind that raised our Chickenhawk in Chief? From the former first lady, Barbra Bush, commenting on the refugees from New Orleans that have been bused to the Houston Astrodome:
What I'm hearing which is sort of scary is that they all want to stay in Texas. Everybody is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway so this (chuckle)--this is working very well for them.

That's right, boys and girls. If you are a poor black resident of New Orleans and have just survived a hurricane, had your home and all worldly possessions washed away from the ensuing flood, then waited for nearly a week while Bush and the rest of his government was on vacation, only to be shipped by bus to the Houston Astrodome where you now call home, things are working very well for you.

Not only does she find this logical, she thinks the idea of these poor black people moving to her state is scary. No wonder George is fucked up.
