Spinning at Hurricane Speed

Reported by Judy - September 24, 2005

Neil Cavuto and his guests during the first hour of the regular Saturday (Sept. 23, 2005) Cost of Freedom business news block were spinning faster than the Accu-Weather radar picture of Hurricane Rita, telling us what a swell job authorities in Texas did to prepare for the storm.

Cavuto, along with Steve Forbes from Forbes magazine, continued the Fox agenda of comparing the situation in Louisiana, which was hit by a Level 4 hurricane, and Houston, which was not hit by a level 3 hurricane.

Forbes and Cavuto claimed Bush had wanted to come to Louisiana earlier but was told by state officials not to come. Forbes said Bush, who also stayed away from New York right after 9/11, did not need to go there right away because Rudy Giuliani was such a strong leader.

Later, Elizabeth McDonald from Forbes magazine, earned brownie points with her boss by comparing Louisiana to "Haiti" and its government to a banana republic. She brought up a former governor who ran against David Duke and noted that bumper stickers in that campaign read, "Vote for the crook and not for the Nazi."

That was a below the belt remark, totally unrelated to what is going on now.

The program also featured video of Bush making remarks from a command center in Colorado, where he had been briefed on the hurricane, congratulating the National Guard on doing its job.

Mention was made of Bush looking tired. I know the real story. I read the National Enquirer while standing in line at the grocery store, and it said Bush is drinking again. Laura caught him taking a shot right after Katrina hit. Would explain a lot, but nobody in the mainstream media will dare ask the question.
