With hurricane season entering its peak, New Orleans is protected better today than at any time in its history. That’s because of Bush. His administration committed $15 billion to build a massive hurricane protection system around the perimeter of the city. It will be completed by next June, fulfilling a promise Bush made before leaving office.
Don’t expect him to get any credit, though. President Obama, who visited New Orleans on Sunday to mark the fifth anniversary of Katrina, didn’t mention Bush once in his remarks.
