It wasn’t LBJ. It was more Jack Kemp. Opportunity zones, and oversight to make sure the money is spent correctly. And this:

Americans want the Gulf Coast not just to survive, but to thrive; not just to cope, but to overcome. We want evacuees to come home, for the best of reasons — because they have a real chance at a better life in a place they love.

President Bush may have started slow, but he’s making up for it now. Dick Morris is correct. Conservatives believe the role of government is to fight wars, and help in times of natural disaster. President Bush was defined by war in his first term. He will be defined by Katrina in his second.
