For John, BLUF: Just a nice story. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Hill Reporter Benedict Carey gives us "Donna Brazile praises Bush’s Katrina response on flight with Obama". There are the parts The InstaPundit quoted:
Donna Brazile, a prominent Democratic political operative, praised President George W. Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina on Thursday, just hours before President Obama’s speech in New Orleans marking the storm’s 10th anniversary.There is no doubt in my mind that Ms Donna Brazile is a Democrat, but I have thought of her as a straight shooter, and still do.
Brazile, a Louisiana native, has applauded Bush’s Katrina response before. But she made her latest comments on board Air Force One while flying to the Big Easy with Obama, who has previously criticized’s his predecessor’s handling of the storm recovery.
“Under President Bush’s leadership, we got it right,” she told reporters.
Brazile said Bush’s initial response to the storm was “slow,” but chalked that up to chaos plaguing state and local governments along the Gulf Coast.
It is nice when someone from one side says something nice about someone from the other side.
