I find it disgusting that people think there's no reason to politicize the
disaster that has become the "relief effort" following Hurricane Katrina.
It's nothing but political and if you think otherwise you're an idiot who
undoubtedly voted for that moronic simpleton (Bush) in the first place.
I continually hear people saying that there's no one to blame - it was an
act of God. Whatever. On the Sunday before Katrina hit, the Director of
the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, Max Mayfield "even talked
about the force of Katrina during a video conference call to President Bush
at his ranch in Crawford, Texas."
(< <http://www.sptimes.com/2005/08/30/State/For_forecasting... >> So
for anyone to tell me that Bush or anyone in his administration didn't have
any idea that Katrina would be as bad as she was is obscene.
I don't blame Bush. I hold him accountable, not because of any action he
took that Sunday, but because of what he didn't do - remember he was still
on his month long vacation. On Monday, he left the sanctuary of his "ranch"
in Crawford, Texas to go give a speech to veterans who valiantly fought in
foreign wars, unlike himself when he had the chance, and continued on with
his song and dance of selling the Iraq War by telling these honorable
veterans "that the Iraq conflict and World War II both "came to our shores
with a surprise attack that killed thousands in cold
blood."( <http://msnbc.msn.com/id/9136915/ > How many times must it be proven
that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11? Even the Republican controlled 9/11
Commission emphatically stated that Iraq was not involved in the events of
9/11. Good grief!
Then, he had just enough time for a photo-op with John McCain. There's a
nice picture of the two of them with a big birthday cake . 'Let them eat
