A pictures worth 1000 words

Published by at 6:13 PM under Comm 208

Nearly a week after reading that George Bush Jr. deemed Kanye West’s remarks the darkest time of his presidential career (Kanye was then quoted as saying Bush didn’t care about black people) he is back in the news defending himself over a photograph. In the photo Bush is seen overlooking Katrina’s destruction from Air Force 1. The photo which Bush referred to as a big mistake reinforced to some allegations that Bush didn’t act quick enough or fully grasp the severity of Katrina and it’s aftermath.

One major aspect of the story is that Air Force 1 didn’t even land in New Orleans that day. It merely flew over on it’s way back to Washington. Would a quick stop have really helped or hurt? That depends on who you ask, unless of course it’s Kanye West.

One response so far

    I’d like to see the story, Kevin. Where was it published? How does he defend his actions? Or does he?

    Any comments on the newsworthiness of the story? It’s good publicity for his book, I imagine.
