Cafferty and Cooper of CNN are fed up.

Watching Jack Cafferty today and Anderson Cooper on CNN the last couple of days was amazing and I'm very impressed with new style of CNN with less spin and more hard news. These guys are not holding any punches when it comes to criticizing the Bush administration's response to this national disaster and they are absolutely right.

From Crooks and Liars (w/ video)

Cafferty:...I'm 62 and I remember the riots in Watts, I remember the earth Quake in San Francisco, I remember a lot of things. I have never, ever seen anything as badly bungled and poorly handled as this situation in New Orleans. Where the hell is the water for these people. Why can't sandwiches be dropped to those people that are in that Super Dome down there...This is Thursday...This storm happened five days ago. It's a disgrace and don't think the world isn't watching...

Anderson Cooper (w/ Crooks and Liars commentary)

Anderson Cooper was visibly upset today by the fact that "person after person" came up to him asking why the federal government hasn't shown up to help out yet.

He reiterated over and over again. " Where is the help?"
