Bush New Orleans Address

Live-blogging the Bush address. Don't like the Jackson Square background. With the official podium it makes the scene look like Jackson Square is a studio backdrop.

Good start as he notes the heroism of so many during the hurricane. "A faith in God no storm can take away"

Giving a list of all the progress that has been made - levees fixed, pipelines running, electricity to most of Miss. Continues with all that is being done by the various agencies of govt. Not exactly music to the ears of small-govt. conservatives.

Emphasizes that federal govt. will be involved, but state and local guys in charge of planning.

More in a second.
