Clinton Levels Sharp Criticism at the President’s Relief Effort – New York Times

Slick Willie beats about the Bush, and as usual, the Bush team misses the point entirely:

“This is a matter of public policy,” he said. “And whether it’s race-based or not, if you give your tax cuts to the rich and hope everything works out all right, and poverty goes up and it disproportionately affects black and brown people, that’s a consequence of the action made. That’s what they did in the 80’s; that’s what they’ve done in this decade. In the middle, we had a different policy.”

The White House spokesman, Scott McClellan, did not respond directly to Mr. Clinton’s remarks about the hurricane-relief effort or mention the former president by name. But in a statement on Sunday, Mr. McClellan suggested it was unfair to link the plight of low-income victims of the hurricane to the economic policies of the Bush administration.”
