NEW YORK Accom­pa­ny­ing her hus­band, for­mer Pres­i­dent George H.W.Bush, on a tour of hur­ri­cane relief cen­ters in Hous­ton, Bar­bara Bush said today, refer­ring to the poor who had lost every­thing back home and evac­u­at­ed, “This is work­ing very well for them.”

In a seg­ment at the top of the show on the surge of evac­uees to the Texas city, Bar­bara Bush said: “Almost every­one I’ve talked to wants to move to Hous­ton.”

Then she added: “What I’m hear­ing is they all want to stay in Texas. Every­one is so over­whelmed with the hos­pi­tal­i­ty.

And so many of the peo­ple in the are­na here, you know, were under­priv­i­leged any­way so this (she chuckled)–this is work­ing very well for them.”
