"I am very excited to visit New Orleans again. I just hope all the water is gone by now," said George W. Bush, who stood on a platform and watched as a suspiciously familiar "Mission Accomplished" banner was hung behind the podium he would speak at.

Jeb Bush was also excited to visit New Orleans and stated, "I want all Americans to know that as president my response to all future devastating storms in America will be just like my brother's response to Katrina."
President Bush declared he stood by his "Heckuva job, Brownie" statement to Michael Brown, who was the director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.
