Two years ago today, the most devastating hurricane to strike the U.S. came ashore, causing widespread destruction to New Orleans and the Louisiana/Mississippi coast. Two years later, much remains to be done, despite Preznit Chimpy's promises from two years ago. Fraud, corruption, mismanagement and bureaucratic delays have hampered most of the reconstruction of New Orleans. Families displaced by the flood are still living in trailers, hoping to get their lives back. But Chimpy has had other priorities. The families will just have to wait.
Maybe he'll bring his fishing gear when he drops in on the Gulf region today for a photo op.
