Bush’s address to the nation. (shrugs shoulders) Well personally, after watching the speech all I was left with was a skeptical outlook, yet again. And how could I forget some cynicism to go along with that sentiment–but that’s just how I felt about the address. Media Girl said that she was “cautiously optimistic” about the speech, but still had a “healthy amount of skepticism.” The pundits are going to have a field day with it and I wonder how Bush’s ratings will do in the next few days. And I agreed with Echidne of the Snakes when she said “watch the money.” Hopefully all the hurricane relief-funds will be put to the specific uses–such as the rebuilding effort–the talking heads on the news, fundraising group reps., politicians, and President Dubya have assured us. Still, I have my concerns with what’s exactly going to happen to all of the millions of dollars being raised for this, how it will be distributed, spent, etc., and the very powerful individuals who are involved in this massive reconstruction and funding effort.
