Let them eat cake.....

The below AP snippet that appeared in a Houston paper makes you just cringe.

Can this clan of elitist, wealthy Americans be this out of touch with reality and the common man. Just because you are poor does not mean that losing what little you may have is a good thing. They still had 'lives' just not 'privilege'. The gross generalization and insensititivy of Mrs. Bush's words is hard to imagine or grasp. And, by god, doesn't EVERYONE want to live in Texas.....what idiocy.

Interesting that comparisons are always drawn within the Bush dynasty, our president talks like his father, who was equally prone to malapropisms and non sequiturs, but he thinks like his mother, whom Nixon admired and reportedly said, "she knows how to hate."

Some would draw an analogy that Mrs. Bush is our very own Marie Antoinette. Too bad she didn't have any cake to share.

Relocation Working for Refugees Who Are 'Underprivileged Anyway'
By PAM EASTON, AP

HOUSTON (Sept. 6) - Former Presidents Bush and Clinton got smiles, hugs and requests for autographs when they met with refugees from Hurricane Katrina - but it was Bush's wife who got attention for some of her comments.

Barbara Bush, who accompanied the former presidents on a tour of the Astrodome complex Monday, said the relocation to Houston is "working very well" for some of the poor people forced out of New Orleans.

"What I'm hearing is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality," she said during a radio interview with the American Public Media
program "Marketplace." "And so many of those people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them."
