Oh, Here We Go

I wondered not to long ago how long it would take for the Bush bashers to begin complaining that Hurricane Katrina was all his fault. Well, we've heard that as well as this from the U.N. goodwill ambassador. I wondered in an earlier post what Angelina Jolie would bring to the table as a U.N. goodwill ambassador. Now, we begin to get a peek.

The federal government's response must be dramatically increased in order
to prevent a further loss of life."
Jolie said she has sent letters to
members of Congress and the White House asking them to increase the speed of the
federal response. She added, "Like most people, I am simply trying to understand
the situation in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama and how I can best help."

One would think that in her position with the mighty United Nations she would be lining up international contributions to assist in the efforts to bring comfort and relief to those along the gulf who are trying to deal with a catastrophy empty handed. Instead she whines about the failure of our own nation to respond quickly enough. If she had called members of Congress instead of sending letters she may have gotten her message through to the legislators much more quickly.

Just an observation.

I fail to see how her comments about speeding aid to the region equates to "slamming" the government as the article declares. She is only voicing what many others are voicing. I also see nowhere in the article where she berates Bush. Your supposition is reaching at best. I'm afraid that you might be accused of knee-jerk conservative defensiveness.

While I wholeheartedly disagree with Ms. Jolie, I have to agree with Beef this time.

Without reading the rest of the artice (time is of the essence today), I don't see anything in your quote that berates or blames the President for anything.

But I said she was saying this "in addition" to those who are slamming Bush.
