Bush speech

I missed the Bush speech, and I'm kind of glad I did. The folks over at The Corner are going nuts about how poor it is. I'm a little disappointed that this is the conversation over there right now because Bush's speech doesn't mean a hill of beans, and it doesn't matter what we outside of the damage zone think about it. The only thing that matters right now is action and results, because it is clear that the New Orleans and Louisiana governments are incapable of dealing with this disaster. While I'm disappointed in the Corner, I'm not going to hold it against them. If you are a political pundit, it can be tough not to see the political angle of a Presidential speech, even if we are in a time where the politics are irrelevant.
