2: No, you proved my point. Trumpeting the 13 percent up top without factoring in the other 18 shows you didn't understand the data you were citing.
3: See: http://www.exisle.ne...ndpost&p=688217
for the link to the SurveyUSA, and go to http://www.rasmussen...005/Katrina.htm
for one of the Rasmussen polls (there are others.)
4 and 5: Get over yourself. You admitted up front that you were passing along spin from Ogami. And it's not like I came out and accused you of caring more about the political standing of the President than the unnecessary deaths of 10,000 or more Americans. Because that would have been overly personal and inappropriate.
5: Edited at moderators' request.
1. I see you beat me to posting this poll by several hours. But it really deserves its own thread. IMO.
2. You are mistaken once again. I didn't prove your point at all and you didn't understand my point. I boldened the words of my choice, as they related to the title I chose for this thread. See like this:
President Bush's response to the disaster as "bad" or "terrible," while 35 percent said it was "good" or "great."
who is to blame for the problems in the city following the hurricane -- 13 percent said Bush
Most Americans, 55 percent, also say Bush does not deserve a significant level of personal blame for problems in the federal response to the crisis.
See how they all correlate to the topic of "Bush not taking the Brunt."
3. I see no response to your post yet, even with your poll of a greater history of accuracy. Thanks for the link.
4 & 5. If I had responded to you in such a manner, I would have been suspened.
5. I see you are asked to edit once AGAIN.
4. Do you care whether or not the deaths of perhaps 10,000 of your fellow citizens are due at least in part to the President's decisions, or simply the polling results? Is everything simply politics? Your little smiley face would seem to suggest that you've already made up your mind on the matter.
Your ignorance is amazing at the fact you would write such a thing. I just got back from 6 days Sept 2 - 6 of working an event that I helped put together in my area. And I had so much fun working. Heres a copy of the flyer we put out.
The Village ______ has initiated a disaster relief fund to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina. “The destruction left by Hurricane Katrina is described as ‘one of the worst natural disasters in history’,” said Mayor _____. “We’ve all been riveted by the media coverage and want to do what we can to help,” the mayor added. To make donating convenient, the Village of ______ has established an account at ____ Bank to which area residents and businesses can send their contributions. “We’ll leave the account open for a few weeks and any money collected will be forwarded to the Salvation Army to help with relief efforts in the affected region,” ____ said.
Contributions may be made payable to the ________ HURRICANE KATRINA RELIEF FUND and dropped off at any of three village facilities or at the _____. Village facilities accepting contributions include the

Is everything simply politics?
What do you think? How much have you done for the folks that are displaced? How much do you really care?
Your concern about a smilie face on a thread. Whoa . You would think with all the hate, anger, piss and vinegar on this board concerning the Katrina issue already in sooo many threads, you could leave just one opposing positive thread alone. You hate folks have had the run of the board from what I can see for the last week. Running over the few who dare to post anything but hate. Sorry but I'm not going to be one of those haters.
Is the main concern here, blaming everything on Bush? Hating him so much you'll do anything to squash a thread that might say the slightest good thing about him? Sheeeez......25 threads full of hate blaming the Feds, FEMA and Bush isn't that enough?
