From The Left Coaster:

The quake struck Saturday. Within two days, the Bush Administration had already started delivering blankets, tents, food, and water. Plus, water, food, blankets, and medicine for 2500 families will arrive in Pakistan tomorrow. More importantly, heavy lift and supply helicopters and engineering support will be there immediately.

Now, tell me again, how many days did it take the Bush Administration to get the same supplies and equipment into New Orleans and Mississippi in the wake of Katrina?
