What is your opinion of the president’s response to the Hurricane Katrina emergency?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 8, 2005
“I’m disappointed. He didn’t convey the gravity of the situation. All he had to offer was his typical smile and saying everything will be better tomorrow. I think people wanted a clear explanation of what would be done to help.”
“It was slow. I think the blame goes much further than the president, but he’s the boss.”
“It was a little late. I think the president grossly miscalculated the situation. I don’t think there is anything he can do to redeem himself.”
“I feel like his response was not adequate, and he deserves the criticism that he has been dealt.”
