Bush Baffles With Bullshit In Katrina PR Opportunity

It amazes me that George Bush has the brass balls to show up in Louisiana and brag about all the aid the government has given post-Katrina victims. Here's an excerpt from a ThinkProgress article:

He bragged that the federal government has provided Louisiana with $700 million in emergency education funds to rebuild the school system. “I believe in freedom to manage and accountability to make sure everybody learns,” said Bush. “It’s what I call challenging the soft bigotry of low expectations.”
What does his sentence mean? "I believe in freedom to manage..." must mean that he doesn't believe in government regulations that would keep people honest. "...and accountability..." must mean that he's going to make General Petreus accountable for the disappearance of 190,000 weapons in Iraq? " make sure everybody learns." Who the fuck is everybody? Him?

Here's what it all really means. George Bush believes in no-bid Katrina contracts where nobody can be held accountable and nobody learns a fucking thing while they siphon huge amounts of money into their own and their relatives' pockets while meanwhile a shitload of human beings in Mississippi and Louisiana suffer.
