Jeb! blames poor for lack of aid

October 27, 2005

It’s New Orleans redux in South Florida, as FEMA drops the ball and Jeb! tries to deflect blame from his brother by taking responsibility for sloppy planning and implementation of disaster recovery.

Well, Jeb!’s not accepting full responsibility – he thinks that people who were unable to stockpile supplies are dumbasses because they failed to attain the financial means necessary to fully prepare for the destruction of a storm that most experts felt would blow through without causing severe damage to South Florida. Really.

“People had ample time to prepare. It isn’t that hard to get 72 hours worth of food and water,…” Bush said.

Like the imbecile who blames a rape victim for inviting an attack by dressing provocatively, Jeb! just doesn’t get it.
