Katrina, Two Years Later: Still Waiting for Bush to Deliver on Promises [VIDEO]

This video of Bush giving his much ballyhooed speech following Hurricane Katrina, where he pledged money and dedication to rebuilding New Orleans and the rest of the Gulf Coast, has the same almost farcical quality that a lot of his early Iraq speeches had. You watch this chimp, making promises you know he doesn't intend to keep or claims he has no intention of backing up and yet just by making the statements he gets credit for having shown "leadership." Where's the leadership now? The number Bush gives in his speech for assistance is now a dead line, a perfect symbol of the failure of post-Katrina strategy or lack thereof. Check out the video to your right for more.
