Conservative approach to Katrina?

What's the real, ultra-conservative American response to Katrina? The Waterbury Republican-American, one of the most conservative newspapers in Connecticut [maybe the country], suggests that New Orleans deserves this disaster and isn't worth saving in yesterday's editorial. LINK

Americans' hearts go out to the people in Katrina's path. But if the people of New Orleans and other low-lying areas insist upon living in harm's way, they ought to accept responsibility for what happens to them and their property. And if the government insists on rebuilding ravaged homes and businesses along Gulf Coasts, it should stipulate that the next time a hurricane blows through, it will be up to the people living there to make themselves whole.

However, before the government commits to reclaiming New Orleans and its marshy environs, it should think long and hard about whether the investment of time and money would be worth it.

Does the president feel the same way the people whom elected him do?
