"[T]he taxpayers and people from all around the country have got to understand the people of this part of the world really do appreciate the fact that the American citizens are supportive of the recovery effort."If you guessed the "country" of New Orleans, give yourself a no-bid government contract.
"I come telling the folks in this part of the world that we still understand there's problems and we're still engaged."
"We care deeply about the folks in this part of the world."
Why would the President of the United States of America refer to New Orleans as that part of the "world" instead of "country"? Why would he say "American citizens are supportive" instead of "fellow" citizens?
I guess I shouldn't read too much into it, since, as we all know, Bush is a uniter and and not a divider. But it is still completely ignorant and creepy. Then again, that is par for the course.
