It's Never To Early To Campaign

My take on the N.O./Katrina/Blame Some White Boys fiasco….

Give me a break! It’s gone from merely sad to downright ridiculous. Why are President Bush and his whole friggin’ administration taking heat for a natural disaster? The only evidence I’ve seen that even remotely hints at a slower than normal recovery process is being spoon fed by CNN, etc. And just when did the Federal Government become responsible for every facet of our lives? Come to think of it, I can’t think of a single, solitary thing the Government has ever done for me or mine and we like it that way!

If you listen you’ll hear the most vocal are the most malcontented and the ones that hope to boot the Republicans out of office by hook or by crook. Even a Democrat must know that at the beginning the Federal Government had no business rushing into the Gulf Coast and taking over. The States have rights and the citizens should look first to their own State for assistance. Now President Bush “took responsibility today for federal government mistakes in dealing with Hurricane Katrina” and that’s just wrong. As wrong as Mr. Brown taking the rap and leaving his job at FEMA.

Who are the malcontents? As usual when the race card is played, Jesse Jackson has his mug in front of the cameras pointing and, guess what, he’s a Democrat. Then there’s Louisiana's Democratic governor, Kathleen Blanco; Mayor Ray Nagin, Democrat ; Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va.; Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La.; and, of course, the Democratic Senator from N. Y. who wants to be President. They are all beating their drums trying to make sure the Democrats have a chance at coming back politically.

Well I’ll never vote for any of them and if this keeps up I predict the backlash from people who think as I do will be terrible and swift. People are donating and trying to do everything humanly possible to ease the suffering and they aren’t going to take kindly to being constantly criticized. The malcontents are not just bashing Mr. Bush, they are bashing each and every one of us that are trying to aid and comfort. Have you seen even one picture of any of the above scooping up dead bodies and bagging them or standing in a dank warehouse sorting through tons of unmarked donated clothes, or making and delivery food etc.? Ha! No, I didn’t think so. I’m proud of my President and this country and I respect the tremendous job that FEMA and the military and all the volunteers are doing. God bless them all!
