A Pledge From This President Is Worth What?

Does any one listen to presidential radio addresses? This is what I found after reviewing the text of this week's load of propaganda:
So last year I made a simple pledge: The federal government would learn the lessons of Katrina, we would do what it takes, and we would stay as long as it takes, to help our brothers and sisters build a new Gulf Coast where every citizen feels part of the great promise of America.

That was the same pledge I repeated to Rockey during his visit to the White House....

...We will stay until the job is done, and by working together, we will help our fellow citizens along the Gulf Coast write a new future of hope, justice, and opportunity for all.
Now, I don't live anywhere near NOLA, but the reiterated "promise" from the President leads me to...drum roll please...

Winspike's Weekend Sentence Completion Contest

There are two parts to this week's contest:

  1. I was just wondering - do folk in the Big Easy feel like the government is with them until this presidential "promise" is requited?

  2. If you can, finish the title sentence: A pledge from this president is worth...

Part 1: Are there any folk in the Big Easy? I've read that more than 2/3's of former residents have not returned and do not intend to.

Part 2: "...the goddamned piece of paper it's printed on, and that's about all."
