Katrina victim Rockey Vaccarella has been appearing before the press to talk of the appreciation he and others feel toward President Bush, in his re-building of the devastated region, and the tax credits he has supported for families trying to re-gain their footing. The one year anniversary of the disaster is approaching. Vaccarella appeared before camera, telling interviewers he wished Bush could be elected to a third term (though this is not currently permitted under the US constitution).

It is reminiscent of other shows of support during his Presidency by families and supporters otherwise felt to be at risk under the president’s policies, such as families of fallen soldiers from Iraq, town hall audiences of seniors who came out to support his Social Security reform package, elderly infirm patients who turned out to support the unpopular Medicare Part D initiative, and a guy Bush hit with his car in 1994. Stez Belstein suffered a concussion, and still has problems with his gait, but he says “Getting hit by George Bush in his car was the greatest thing that ever happened to me, and I am grateful to be able to support all his efforts on behalf of this country. I only wish my trunk and head had inflicted less damage to the grill of his car, but it is offset, in my mind, by the honor of just briefly being a part of the world of this great, great man. It is an honor my family and I will bask in for many generations.”
