Making Hay






After my brief dismissal two weeks ago; I had not thought I would return to this blog. My brief misstatement was blown out of proportion by my enemies and my coworkers piled on without provocation. And the recent tragedy in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama have somewhat dampened my eagerness to engage in partisan bickering.

But I note, with much sadness but little surprise, that our friends on the left side of the aisle have felt NO SUCH RESTRAINT. Rather they seem to see this TRAGEDY as an opportunity to trash the president. Have they no shame?

If they had shame they would no longer be liberals but, rather, Americans.

Take this mean-spirited ugly article published at the Nation and
reprinted by Commondreams.
On Friday, when even Republican lawmakers were giving the federal government an "F" for its response to the crisis, President Bush heaped praise on embattled Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Michael Brown. As thousands of victims of the hurricane continued to plead for food, water, shelter, medical care and a way out of the nightmare to which federal neglect had consigned them, Brown cheerily announced that "people are getting the help they need."

Barbara Bush's son put his arm around the addled FEMA functionary and declared, "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

Like mother, like son.
Of course the Democratic ATTACK MONGERS wasted no time attacking Ms. Bush for expressing pleasure that some of those who's lives were shattered in New Orleans were being well taken care of in Houston. It probably infuriates liberals that one of the reddest cities in America has shown such generosity as it puts the lie to the old "heartless Conservative" myth.

And they wasted no time attacking President Bush for failing to completely fix the problems of New Orleans. This is because government is the GOD OF THE DEMOCRATS. Rather than having a healthy respect for the limitations of Government, Democrats expect government to fix all problems. And since Government apparently failed the people of New Orleans, they must blame President Bush rather than understanding and accepting the limitations of Government.

Because it's a lot easier to attack Bush than it is to accept the moral failings inherent in your own philosophy, isn't it?
