Yes he's making an appearance for the anniversary. Here are some of the comments at the Times Picayune and they reflect the vast majority of the comments there:
--The last thing we need this time of year is more hot air.
--was he invited? just like a bush to crash a party.
--How dare he! That is like going to the funeral and your caused the death.
--whoop-de-freaking-doo, lets give ole dubya a medal
--The Prez has some set of ballz comin' down for the anniversary after the his watch has pretty much left New Olreans for dead.
--Maybe I should invite all them to my slab in Arabi!
--NEW ORLEANS MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
--No details available regarding his itinerary? Maybe he's going to do another fly-over...
--What a joke. All this does is remind me of two years ago, and what an utter failure this moron was. The nerve he has to come here again, after failing us so miserably.
--bush you failed you cheated and you lied. On august 29 go wipe cheneys butt and kiss it your good at that . The great and courageous people of Nola and the Mississippi Gulf Coast forgot about you a long time ago . When your false term is FINALLY over now thats a time for a major party .
--GWB go home.
--Well this news just made my whole day complete, aaaarrrrggggg! Why don't we all just line the streets with our beloved Amercan flag turned upside down in the international sign of DISTRESS!
Other commenters really liked the idea of that last comment so don't be surprised if you see some upside down flags. In fact Suspect Device has one already....
If you live /work in NOLA and own an American flag, fly it upside down this Wednesday. Hell, fly it upside down the whole week.
I think we bloggers should post upside down flags in solidarity.
