Scottie to Katrina victims: We obviously did a good job
The White House on Thursday made available top Corps officials to assure reporters that cuts to the agency's budget did not cause the Katrina disaster. Even though the administration has chronically cut back on the Corps' own requests for funding -- including two key New Orleans-area projects -- White House officials trumpeted the administration's support for the Corps.
"Flood control has been a priority of this administration from Day One," McClellan said.
See, we support things by taking vital dollars away from it, but our empty words more than make up the difference... don't you see?!?!
