Barbara Bush: Things Working Out 'Very Well' for Poor Evacuees from New Orleans

NEW YORK -- Accompanying her husband, former President George
H.W.Bush, on a tour of hurricane relief centers in
Houston, Barbara Bush said today, referring to the
poor who had lost everything back home and evacuated,
"This is working very well for them."

The former First Lady's remarks were aired this
evening on National Public Radio's "Marketplace"
program.

She was part of a group in Houston today at the
Astrodome that included her husband and former
President Bill Clinton, who were chosen by her son,
the current president, to head fundraising efforts for
the recovery. Sen. Hilary Clinton and Sen. Barack
Obama were also present.

In a segment at the top of the show on the surge of
evacuees to the Texas city, Barbara Bush said: "Almost
everyone I’ve talked to says we're going to move to
Houston."

Then she added: "What I’m hearing which is sort of
scary is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is
so overwhelmed by the hospitality.

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you
know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she
chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."

Yeah, that would be scary. Just imagine all them po' folks wantin' to set up their squalid housekeeping in the Lone Star state.

Some of them might even try to squat in a roadside ditch near Wee Georgie's gopher ranch. Time to call the sherrif and haul their sorry asses off to the hoosegow before they get too many uppity ideas.

Don't you just wish it would wind up well for the rest of us.No chance
H.W Bush would have had to pull out for that to happen."W" is the poster boy for having birth control.
