Better than Bush flying over New Orleans in Air Force One, days after the hurricane!!
"31 AUGUST -- WEDNESDAY
President Bush surveys Gulf Coast damage from air as he returns to Washing
02 SEPTEMBER -- FRIDAY
President Bush visits New Orleans, taking a helicopter tour with Mayor Nagin. According to the Mayor, Bush tells him that "he [the President] was fully committed to getting us the resources we need," Nagin said in the tattered Hyatt hotel next to the Superdome. "I told him I knew we could work together, and he said he understood."
Gov. Blanco rejects Bush administration proposal asking her to request a federal takeover of the evacuation of New Orleans. Louisiana officials rejected the request after talks throughout the night, concerned that such a move would be comparable to a federal declaration of martial law.
President Bush visits Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, and later signs a $10.5 billion disaster relief bill.
05 SEPTEMBER -- MONDAY
President Bush makes his second visit to the stricken region since Katrina struck, meeting with Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco and other officials at the state's relief headquarters in Baton Rouge."
"Barack Obama has failed to match George W. Bush's multiple visits"
"Say what you will about former President George W. Bush and his administration's handling of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath --the man knew how to put together a post-Katrina White House visit to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.
They were exhaustive, exhausting, sunup-to-sundown, sometimes multiday and multistate affairs. And there were a lot of them: 13 in all to the New Orleans area in the three years after the storm.
"Having traveled with President Bush when he would go to New Orleans or elsewhere in the Gulf Coast, it was absolutely exhausting for him, I'm sure, although he rarely showed it. I know it was exhausting for me," said retired Marine Gen. Douglas O'Dell, who served as the second coordinator of the Office of Gulf Coast Rebuilding under Bush.
"He wanted to hear multiple voices from across the community on a one-on-one level," recalled O'Dell, who said Bush packed every crevice of his visit with interactions with people of every stripe. "He made unbelievable use of his time," said O'Dell."
