The Death President

I have to say up front, I'm still overwhelmed with the events that occurring, just one state away in Louisiana. On a number of occasions, the pictures and the stories have brought tears to my eyes. I’m feeling overwhelmed by it all.

But the incompetence of the current administration has my blood boiling. The time it took for Bush to peak out of his turtle shell, and accept that during this event, he needs to do his damn job rather than spend weeks of ‘me time’ on the ranch told us everything about how this rescue effort would proceed.

Our leader doesn’t want to lead. He had to be dragged away from his vacation to do the job he was elected to do and from all accounts, was very unhappy about being bothered with this. I guess he’s especially annoyed that not only will he be known as “The War President”, he’ll also be known as the “President that Botched The Biggest Natural Disaster the US has Ever Seen.” Bush must be pissed at Jesus for making him go through such a tragedy. He’s probably wondering why Jesus wasn’t happy with just the killing part of his job. Now he has to save lives too?

But as we’ve seen, he hasn’t the capability to actually save lives. He lacks coordination and organizational skills, and thus is unable to marshal the forces under his command. And what we see as a result, is a half-hearted and belated rescue effort that Bush doesn’t really care one whit about.

Until someone with authority and the skills to organize the rescue effort, is allowed to step up to the plate, we’re going to continue to see this situation deteriorate. As this administration has never allowed anyone to do their job properly, I expect that Bush will sabotage any meaningful effort to ameliorate this crisis. That’s been his MO all along.

This disaster means that support for his war in Iraq will wane. It also means that support for Bush from all levels of the government will decline, as the public continues to watch people die on live television. And unlike the Iraqi war, Bush has no authority to tell the refugees to keep their ordeal secret. They are going to fan out all over the nation and tell everyone they come to know, how Bush bungled the worst natural crisis that the US has ever faced.

Bush is showing us that he is a failure. He’s a loser. He’s not a ‘War President’. He’s a ‘Death President.’

In the first days after 9/11, Rudy Giuliani was not just mayor, but filled the public role of the president.

Sadly, no such public figure has emerged on the Gulf Coast.

The mayor of New Orleans seems to be pretty vocal.

Actually, Jack, GW Bush is the "whore President" more than he is anything else.

This is the same impotent gentleman "C" student who sat on his ass reading a book about a goat while people hurled themselves from tall buildings in New York City.

What do you think? That the chickenshit would miraculously turn into a hero?

He's still the same chickenshit who took four days to come out of hiding and get his sorry ass to NYC after the WTC was professionally imploded.

Same shit - different day

Bush = Emporer Nero.

While the flood waters were engulfing the city of New Orleans, Bush strummed his presidential guitar and then played a round of golf.
