How's Bayou, Mr. President?
WASHINGTON, DC Upon his return from New Orleans, President Bush was
greeted by staff members on the White House lawn.
"How are you Mr. President" asked the White House Chief of Staff, Andy Card.
"I'm OK," said the President. "How's bayou?"
President Bush viewed the most devastated regions from a helicopter, flying over the Alabama and Mississippi coasts and landing in Mississippi to speak with people there. Upon landing, the President was overheard telling an aide, "I'm hungry. I could go for some fresh battered Gulf shrimp."
Later in the week, President Bush visited New Orleans. When told that some looters had been firing at rescue helicopters, he said that was probably due to years of their being discriminated against and being trapped in poverty. "We been Cajun them too long," he said.
