Default Stupid Quotes About Hurricane Katrina

Stupid Quotes....


There be some doozies here...and sorry if this is double posted or anything....
Listing a few..there is 25 of them listed..


) "Well, I think if you look at what actually happened, I remember on Tuesday morning picking up newspapers and I saw headlines, 'New Orleans Dodged the Bullet.' Because if you recall, the storm moved to the east and then continued on and appeared to pass with considerable damage but nothing worse." –Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, blaming media coverage for his failings, "Meet the Press," Sept. 4, 2005 (Source)

9) "I mean, you have people who don't heed those warnings and then put people at risk as a result of not heeding those warnings. There may be a need to look at tougher penalties on those who decide to ride it out and understand that there are consequences to not leaving.” –Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), Sept. 6, 2005 (Source)

10) "You simply get chills every time you see these poor individuals...many of these people, almost all of them that we see are so poor and they are so black, and this is going to raise lots of questions for people who are watching this story unfold." –CNN's Wolf Blitzer, on New Orleans' hurricane evacuees, Sept. 1, 2005 (Source)

13) "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans.
We couldn't do it, but God did." –Rep. Richard Baker (R-LA) to lobbyists, as quoted in the Wall Street Journal (Source)

14) "Louisiana is a city that is largely under water." –Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, news conference, Sept. 3, 2005 (Source


25) "Thank President Clinton and former President Bush for their strong statements of support and comfort today. I thank all the leaders that are coming to Louisiana, and Mississippi and Alabama to our help and rescue. We are grateful for the military assets that are being brought to bear. I want to thank Senator Frist and Senator Reid for their extraordinary efforts. Anderson, tonight, I don't know if you've heard – maybe you all have announced it -- but Congress is going to an unprecedented session to pass a $10 billion supplemental bill tonight to keep FEMA and the Red Cross up and operating." –Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), to CNN's Anderson Cooper, Aug. 31, 2005, to which Cooper responded:

"I haven't heard that, because, for the last four days, I've been seeing dead bodies in the streets here in Mississippi. And to listen to politicians thanking each other and complimenting each other, you know, I got to tell you, there are a lot of people here who are very upset, and very angry, and very frustrated. And when they hear politicians slap – you know, thanking one another, it just, you know, it kind of cuts them the wrong way right now, because literally there was a body on the streets of this town yesterday being eaten by rats because this woman had been laying in the street for 48 hours. And there's not enough facilities to take her up. Do you get the anger that is out here?"

Jack Thompson: Yes, put down the controller and get a life. Video gaming is an escapist activity and you’re being exploited by these companies. It’s not healthy; I worry about someone who would play Grand Theft Auto for ten hours a day. It’s a masturbatory activity, and it would be better if people put down the controller and went outside.

Personally I feel this is appropriate for people who refuse to leave. There is obviously a big difference between those that refuse and those that cant physically leave of course. Can you give me your reasons for feeling this is stupid ?

Add the matron of compassion to your list.


"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them."
----Barbara Bush

Barbara Bush is one of the most compassionate people you will ever meet. Dissing her just makes you look spiteful (which of course we all know you are).

Nothing really is off limits to you is it Mumbles. You would kick your Grandma in the teeth if it meant getting your partys person in the white house.

The fact you are now attacking the man you hate the most wife really shows your character. You have officially become the biggest fucking tard ever.

Answer me this Mumbles, do these underprivliged, because that is what most of the evacuees are in the Houston Astrodome are, have it better now than when they did fighting for everything they own in the streets for their survival?

She made a silly comment. I have a lot of respect for her, and I'm sure all of us have made a silly remark before. (some a lot more often then others)

I actually think you two are being hypocritical. You are to mumbles, what mumbles is to the president.
