There's a Hurricane hitting the United States and where is George W. Bush? He's off rubbing elbows with foreigners at the United Nations. This man never learns, does he? Two weeks ago he was out west meeting with a veterans group when Katrina came ashore. Now he's in New York while North Carolina is threatened. Can't our President prioritize any better than that? I mean, leaving the emergency management to state and local authorities -- has he no shame? Everyone knows the President must call every shot. No one can exist without guidance from Washington. And where's FEMA when you need them? They're in Louisiana and Mississippi and Aladambama, for heaven's sake! Can't they get better organized than that? Didn't they learn from their previous mistakes? What buffons! Fire them all! Impeach Bush! When will the cavalry arrive to save the day? We're waiting!
In case you didn't GET IT, the above bloviating is a parody. Unfortunately, it's not inconceivable these days that such idiotic ranting might just appear on a leftist blog -- or even in the MSM -- or be spoken by a liberal Democrat politician.
By the way the local emergency management folks, mayors, county and state officials are doing the jobs they're supposed to do, thank you very much. They'll put in a call for help if and when they need it, and not blame others for their own errors. It will be a marked difference from two weeks ago, but the mainstream press won't make a big deal out of it. Just watch them and see. I hope I am wrong.
