In last year's State of the Union address (which I'd taken to calling his State of Denial address for this very reason) Bush never said a word about New Orleans, the Gulf Coast, or Katrina--as if he'd written off an entire area of the country. So I didn't expect him to mention them last night.
You could have knocked me over with a feather when Bush first mentioned "armies of compassion" on the Gulf Coast, then announced that NOLA will be the venue of the next North American Summit with Canada and Mexico.
What is this--NOLA's "not ready" to host a presidential debate, per the site selection commission--yet she can host a summit of three world leaders?
Bush must be up to something---more later.
