"ABC Stunned: Evacuees Don't Blame Bush"

After Bush's big speech, ABC's Nightline tried to get some interesting sound bites. They failed:

...[DEAN] REYNOLDS: Did you harbor any anger toward the president because of the slow federal response?
LONDON: No. None whatsoever, because I feel like our city and our state government should have been there before the federal government was called in. They should have been on their jobs.
REYNOLDS: And they weren't?
LONDON: No. No, no, no. Lord, they wasn't. I mean, they had RTA busses, Greyhound buses, school buses, that was just sitting there going underwater when they could have been evacuating people...

No doubt all the people ABC interviewed were just Karl Rove plants.
