The new White House website unveiled by President Barack Obama’s team Tuesday includes a shot at former President Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina.
Under the “agenda” portion of the site regarding Katrina, it reads: “President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.”
“President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina,” the statement on the site continues. “Citing the Bush Administration’s ‘unconscionable ineptitude’ in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims.”
But, remember, it’s not about The One!
Like so many other items under the “Agenda” link, this appears to simply be a copy and paste from Change.gov, before that, BarackObama.com.
It’s the new Permanent Campaign campaign, comrade!
Just look at Whitehouse.gov… the only thing missing is a ‘Donate Now‘ button.
