President Bush Center Stage On Studio B

Reported by Donna - August 28, 2006 -

On Studio B with Shepard Smith today they spent between 20 and 25 minutes focusing on President Bush's speech in Mississippi since tomorrow is the one year anniversary of Katrina. His speech focused on thanking the Governor, the Senators, the Mayors, over and over.

He also said that he gave a big check and now it's up to the local governments to make things happen.

While the news was all positive coming out of Mississippi, it was a different story when they went back to New Orleans and Shepard Smith. Smith asked Fox analyst, Juan Williams what the president had to do politically. Williams said he needed to do exactly what he was doing -- saying that the Federal government did everything it could and it was now up to the local governments.

Smith and Williams both spoke of the failure in New Orleans as compared to Mississippi. Williams said it was Ray Nagyn's fault, he should have had a planning session instead of pushing for a Mayorial election.

Comments: President Bush's speech was all upbeat in Mississippi with plenty of praise for the Republican lawmakers. He also did what Williams said he should do -- take the focus off of the Federal Government and put it on the local level.

All choreographed perfectly.
