Where's W When You Need Someone To Blame?

Katrina!  Katrina!  Katrina!

It all made sense.  George W. Bush was a boob.  And FEMA, because he was a boob, was a woeful mess. And New Orleans suffered because of it.

Then he was gone.

But FEMA is still around.

Oh, my.

The New York Times this morning:
In many places that the storm pounded in its relentless push into the Northeast, there was a profound sense of isolation, with whole towns on Long Island still cut off from basic information, supplies and electricity. People in washed-out neighborhoods said they felt increasingly desperate. “Everything involving our lives is a matter of exhaustion,” said Nancy Reardon, 45, who waited for gas for five hours on Saturday in Massapequa.

Vikki Quinn, standing amid ruined belongings in front of her flooded house in Long Beach, said she felt lost. “I just keep waiting for someone with a megaphone and a car to just tell us what to do,” she said.

Hundreds of thousands of homes on Long Island were still without power Saturday, and frustration with the utilities, particularly Long Island Power Authority, continued to rise. “LIPA, get your act together,” Edward P. Mangano, the Nassau County executive, wrote on his Facebook page Saturday. “This response and lack of communication with customers is shameful.”
Sounds a whole lot like the Katrina narrative, doesn't it?

Only two things missing.  The names Bush and Obama.

Unlike the 2005 New Orleans disaster, which was blamed by the Times solely on the former, the latter certainly can't be saddled with the tragedy that is unfolding on Staten Island.  


So expect the New York Times to blame W. for Sandy and the devastation it brought too.

Obama, after all, is our first black president, and all that ...

Tim Kaine & Gun Rights

The NRA passes judgment:

Kaine received an "F" from America's premier gun rights group, its lowest, only because there is no "G."

Remember that when you enter the voting booth.

Tying Climate Change To Racism?

Oh, why not ...

This in the Huffington Post (naturally):

"Climate change is kind of like racism. Nobody really wants to talk about it, but it is as critical as it is constructive that we have that conversation now. Whether politicians, pundits or polls bring it up or not, like racism, we all know climate change is real. We all know it threatens our peace, security and the very unity of these United States of America."

As you might imagine, this dude looked out his New York City window, saw a Category 1 hurricane blowing (a tempest that was barely more than a tropical storm, if we could get "real") and saw ...

... racism?

This so explains the mindset.

Racism is climate change denial.

And, probably, it's the "war on women" and gay bashing too, if we were to probe the depths.

For the love of God.  What's with these people?

Some Minor Trivia

Can anyone name a backup quarterback in the NFL who was named to a "hall of fame"?

I know of only one.

Zeke Bratkowski.

Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, 1989.

If only that darn Bart Starr hadn't been around ...

Please, No

If this old prune starts talking about her lady parts, I'm going to toss my Wheaties:

Obama Turns To Madeleine Albright For 'War On Women' Push

He chose her because the 75-year-old Albright is the youngest feminist alive today ...

The Shame Of A Nation

"They shall not return to us; the strong men coldly slain"

Hillary Isn't The Only One In Trouble

Where was this guy before and after?

Petraeus of Benghazi

And why does it seem that he too failed us miserably, before and after?

Why We Must Succeed

The alternative is poverty and starvation.

Thomas Peterffy has been there.  And shouts that warning:

The freedom to succeed.

The chance that we'll all be poor alike.


Wow, I Could Only Come Up With 46

Obama's 4 Years Of Deficient Leadership: 47 Mistakes

Tim Kaine, Barack Obama ...

This is the heart of it, as far as I'm concerned:
Vote for George Allen
Virginia doesn’t need an Obama crony in the Senate
Washington Times editorial

Polls show the race is neck-and-neck to fill Jim Webb’s vacant U.S. Senate seat in Virginia. According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, Republican George Allen, the former governor and senator, is in a statistical dead heat with Democrat Tim Kaine, recent chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and former governor. Only about 3 percent are undecided. Why this is so close is a mystery. America is on the ropes under Democratic mismanagement. The candidate in the Virginia race who can contribute to turning this country around and fixing the economy is George Allen.

On the issues, Mr. Allen wins this one hands down. His common-sense conservatism is based on maintaining a strong military, cutting government spending and reducing the tax and regulatory burden to give the private sector confidence to invest and create jobs. “Reckless, irresponsible Washington spending has resulted in unprecedented annual trillion-dollar deficits,” Mr. Allen told The Washington Times. “You can’t set priorities when you don’t have a budget — and the Senate hasn’t passed a budget in over three years. In that time, Washington has added $5 trillion in debt and punted on nearly every effort to restrain spending.”

The contrast in this race is vivid. As a governor, senator, congressman and member of the commonwealth’s House of Delegates, Mr. Allen has a long record of leading the charge for limited government and job growth. Mr. Kaine frighteningly admitted that his work is simply, “Doing what the president wants me to do.” America can’t afford another Obama lackey voting to increase federal deficits and debt. The Washington Times endorses George Allen for the U.S. Senate. [link]
If you like what Barack Obama has done to this country, you'll vote for Tim Kaine.

And you'll get four and six more years of everything that is wrong with the USA.

If, by the same token, you want America to shine once again, you'll send Kaine back to the sewer from which he crawled, and vote for George Allen.
