Opération de relations publiques

Standing with the governors in an airplane hangar, Bush said, « We have a responsibility to clean up this mess. »

Et pendant ce temps sur le terrain, monsieur le Maire Nagin de la Nouvelle-Orléans, absent lors de cette opération de relations publiques, avait un tout autre message à passer au président:

I don’t want to see anybody do anymore goddamn press conferences. Put a moratorium on press conferences. Don’t do another press conference until the resources are in this city. And then come down to this city and stand with us when there are military trucks and troops that we can’t even count.

Don’t tell me 40,000 people are coming here. They’re not here. It’s too doggone late. Now get off your asses and do something, and let’s fix the biggest goddamn crisis in the history of this country.
