The more I read or hear about George W. Bush the less I like him as a person. Has everyone read this week’s Newsweek
article “How Bush Blew It
”? It depicts the President as uninformed, surly (“cold and snappish”), and not really doing his job. Of course I first heard about the article on Countdown
Monday night, and I couldn’t wait to get my copy in the mail yesterday.
A President should be informed about what is happening with his fellow citizens, and he should want to be informed. This whole episode just reinforces what everybody on the Left already knew: George W. Bush is not really qualified, in many ways, to be President. The job of President is a tough job. If you don’t want to pay attention to the plight of New Orleans (that is part of the job, you know) then get out and let someone be President who will.
I reiterate: If you want a President who cares about you, and how acts like he cares, vote Democratic. We won’t abandon you suffering at the Superdome.
P.S. Something is evolving that is getting harder to ignore. There seems to be an Impeach Bush movement flourishing on the internet. The Impeach Bush Coalition
has an interesting website. They make the argument that if you can bring charges of criminal negligence against the owners of the rest home where 34 people died, then the President could be charged with criminal negligence for his part in the much larger catastrophe that befell New Orleans under his watch, or something to that effect. It is an interesting read.
Also, there is apparently a March on Washington
scheduled for the weekend of 9/24. Wow, this is getting interesting.
In the meantime a dozen explosions kill and maim hundreds in Iraq, Hurricane Ophelia batters the North Carolina coast, and the beat goes.
