Quote of the Day

"Well, what do we have? We have the US military that's been mobilized. The president has been talking to the governors. The senators of these states can't really do a whole lot, but the governors can. He's had numerous conversations with the governors. He's assured them that they're going to get what they need. You have neighborhoods governors from Texas, Rick Perry, they're going to take some of these people from the Superdome into the Astrodome. They're even going to give them school books and try to conduct school and sessions for the youngsters that are going over there to try to have some sense of normalcy. All kinds of people are banding together. Folks, this is no disparagement to President Bush or anybody else, but I'm sorry, it's not going to be the president that puts this back together. It isn't going to be a member of Congress and isn't going to be a series of governors that puts this back together. It never is. The people who make -- they'll be a part of it but a crucial role, they're not irrelevant -- but without the people who make this country work none of what you see on TV would be taking place. The Army Corps of Engineers, you've got people down there risking drowning trying to get these pumps going, trying to fix these breaches in the sea walls and the levees, doing the rescue operations, the search operations. They're going to have to deal with the dead. Nobody has even talked about the wildlife yet that they're going to find that has expired, and that's going to have to be dealt with. " --Rush Limbaugh
