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?"

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 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.

Kinda hard to leave when fools do this.

Cops trapped survivors in New Orleans
By Shaun Waterman
UPI Homeland and National Security Editor
Sep. 9, 2005 at 10:48AM
Police from surrounding jurisdictions shut down several access points to one of the only ways out of New Orleans last week, effectively trapping victims of Hurricane Katrina in the flooded and devastated city.
An eyewitness account from two San Francisco paramedics posted on an internet site for Emergency Medical Services specialists says, "Thousands of New Orleaners were prevented and prohibited from self-evacuating the city on foot."
"We shut down the bridge," Arthur Lawson, chief of the City of Gretna Police Department, confirmed to United Press International, adding that his jurisdiction had been "a closed and secure location" since before the storm hit.
"All our people had evacuated and we locked the city down," he said.
The bridge in question -- the Crescent City Connection -- is the major artery heading west out of New Orleans across the Mississippi River.

I personally love the wolf blitzer "so poor, so black" statement. It reminds me of a commerical for hair products aimed at the African-American community.

They were supposed to leave prior to the storm remember? At least discussing an ideas to promote more people responding to evacuation orders is useful, where its a penalty or incentive if it helps to save lives it should be considered.

Based upon what? Her matronly qualities? The fact that she keeps her mouth shut most of the time?

I suppose this little snippet from snopes ought to provide a little more insight into her feelings...

The body count is 183, not 10,000 as the number the left always claims for every disaster. Does that count as dodging a bullet?

-edit-
what did Barbara Bush say that was incorrect? Some of these people had nothing before the hurricane, they didnt lose anything, now they have shelter and food and will receive free permanent housing with cash in a better area of the country. sounds like Barbara is right. its becuase of people like BeeBee that we have so much PC crap. people attack you for anything you say, even if its true. I guess only the left have freedom of speech, for the "insensitive" right its verboten.

You make it sound as if all the people were living on the street in cardboard boxes. These people had some life there.

Yes, freedom to say anything is important...don't mean you can't get blasted right back for saying something though.
