Thread Name: BS: Rush Limbaugh blames Katrina's victims
Subject: RE: BS: Rush Limbaugh blames Katrina's victims
Someone sent me the following - statements from our former first "Lady" Barbara Bush. I'm sickened by Limbaugh & the Bush Family arrogance. She said:They were "underprivileged anyway!" So I guess they're HAPPY the storm came cause now they are better off!
Former first lady Barbara Bush told a radio interviewer Monday night that many of the people she met with at Houston's Astrodome were____ "underprivileged anyway"____ and their newfound shelter "is working very well for them." "Almost everyone I've talked to says we're going to move to Houston," Bush told American Public Radio's "Marketplace" after touring the obsolete sports
arena, where 17,500 residents from the New Orleans area are being housed.

"What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everybody is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway -- this, this is working very well for them.
