Some of George Bush’s Best Photo Ops Are With Black People

Reported by Ellen - February 28, 2006

Rather than discuss the state of New Orleans, the violence in Iraq or the UAE port debacle (which was the second story), the top story last night (2/27/06) on Hannity & Colmes was Bill Sammon touting his latest loveletter of a book about President Bush.

In his portion of the interview, Alan Colmes focused on the problems and missteps in Bush’s second term: Harriet Miers, Social Security privatization and Katrina, e.g. Colmes said, “They seem not to be in control of the news cycle or the politics of these things.”

Sammon agreed there had been some missteps. “But on the lack of the response to Katrina, I was with President Bush. I was the only newspaper reporter with him on his first trip down there. After the hurricane, he walked up to these – a couple of black ladies came up and were crying and he was kissing them on the forehead… I’m a pretty jaded guy and I thought maybe he’s fooling me but he doesn’t look like a heartless racist to me.”

Comment: Let me get this straight: Bush played guitar at a fundraiser while New Orleans drowned but after it was all over, he kissed two ladies on the forehead and it proves he did a heckuva job?
