Katrina Victims Surprise ABC News

ABC News reporter Dean Reynolds gathered reactions to President Bush’s speech last night in the parking lot of the Houston Astrodome. What Reynolds obviously wasn’t prepared for was the answers to his leading questions that these black evacuees from New Orleans gave him.

This exchange was typical of the segment:

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 buses, Greyhound buses, school buses, that was just sitting there going under water when they could have been evacuating people.”Transcript available at Newsbusters
