John Gibson Preps Fox Viewers For Bush Speech

Reported by Deborah - September 15, 2005

Big Story today, 9/15/05, was all about the great strides made in New Orleans.Maybe viewers, amazed at the speed of recovery down in NOLA, would come to the obvious conclusion that President Bush has everything under control and is most cetainly making up for those 5 days that have horrified people around the world.

The big news was the announcement that residents of the French Quarter and downtown business district could start moving back this weekend to begin opening their businesses. After only 3 weeks this was uplifting news although there was no discussion today about EPA results that have declared some areas uninhabitable. On Big Story today, New Orleans was getting back on it's feet with the help and resolve of the Bush Administration.

David, axis of evil, Frum was interviewed by Gibson about what the President needed to cover tonight in his speech.Gibson asked Frum if Bush needed a "hair shirt" to prove his guilt.

Frum claimed that Bush just needed to show concern and make an emotional connection with the viewers. Frum added that Bush needed to avoid the 4 or 5 days and point to the progress being made. Frum suggested that he show people how the Gulf is "snapping back'" already.

Gibson told Frum that Bush needs to acknowledge the people who have suffered and Frum gushed, "This comes naturally to George Bush. He's an authentic person."

Then Brenda Buttner put the icing on the good times cake with her upbeat interpretation of the poor economic numbers. She acknowledged that the jobless numbers are high because of Katrina but that could be very positive when Greenspan announces interest rates. She was sure that there would be many jobs available during the reconstruction efforts and she was sure that there was plenty of work for everyone in Houston. When Gibson sounded doubtful, she declared, "Not right away but soon."

comment: So the people displaced, flat broke, homeless and mourning for lost friends and family should be heartened to hear that their hometowns are "snapping back". But here are some compassionate plans that they won't be hearing about tonight.
