Despite all the bullshit that comes out of President Bush's mouth, the simple facts are these:
1. Hundreds of billions of dollars are going to be spent under the direction of the White House's chief political operative, Karl Rove.
2. The agencies responsible for that money have a history of incompetence in the handling of far smaller sums of money.
3. The corporations brought into the rebuilding effort with be those with the closest political connections to the Republican Party and the Bush Administration.
4. Those corporations will include many of the same companies that have stolen unaccounted billions from the United States in Iraq.
That is Bush's Four Point Plan for the reconstruction of the Gulf Coast.
