Mayor Nagin: “I Want To Thank You, Mr. President”

Remarks By New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin

May 20, 2006

MAYOR NAGIN: “I want to thank you, Mr. President. You and I have probably been the most vilified politicians in the country. But I want to thank you for moving that promise that you made in Jackson Square forward. We now have $3 billion for levees. We have $8 billion for incentives. We have $10 billion for housing. You are delivering on your promise, and I want to thank you for all the citizens of the City of New Orleans.”

Your tax dollars at work, re-electing a clown backed by a Republican president. Wonder what Mary Landrieu will threaten to do to President Bush now!
