Bush Really Seems To Care, About Himself!

Imagine your beautiful house and all your life's prized possessions and keepsakes having been reduced to soot and ashes. You and your family can only blankly stare at this horror before your eyes when all of a sudden you hear this din getting closer and closer. You look up and see the last thing in the world you want to see. The idiot-in-chief dressed in his little "hard work" shirt, his neatly creased "brush clearing" jeans and his little "hard work" boots emerging from the midst of photographers, videographers, journalists and his usual throng of sycophants walking up to you and your family. Then this shameless photo opportunist tells you in his affected Texas drawl how he feels your pain as he reaches out to give you a hug. Just the very thought of that makes me want to spit bile up in my mouth.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States of America is in what used to be your house. How gullible are people who buy two cents worth of this cruel and contrived horse feces? Two years ago the gulf coast areas of Mississippi and Louisiana were devastated by Hurricane Wilma. The city of New Orleans is still a long way from anything close to a full recovery. The worst part of all however, was the systematic way in which the people of New Orleans were ignored and abandoned by the Federal Government in the immediate hours and days following the storm's conclusion. While the poor people of New Orleans were left to fend for themselves, George W. Bush was doing what he's always done best, he was vacationing. Survivors were literally dying in the streets from lack of fresh water, food and disease. People died of exposure trapped on the roofs of their houses while others were being victimized in the Superdome and in the few dry pieces of ground within the city limits.

BROWNIE DOING A HECK OF A JOB RIGHT BEFORE HE WAS FIRED

The one common thread connecting these victims were the irrefutable facts that they were mostly poor and mostly black. Not the kind of people the George W. Bush's of the world associate with. I mean they weren't the people that supported Bush and his fellow republicans with generous campaign contributions or at the ballot box. When Bush eventually began to pay the slightest attention to this national shame, thanks to the 24 hour coverage of the world's media, all he did was mug for the cameras with then FEMA director Michael Brown. Who among us will ever forget the immortal "you're doing a heck of a job, Brownie" proclamation. Bush eventually showed up nearly a week after the total devastation and gave one of his hollow, canned speeches, made all kinds of empty promises (most of which have never been fulfilled) and found some sad victims to hug as the cameras recorded every moment for posterity. Bush was highly and correctly criticized for his cavalier, too little-too late, public relations intensive attitude. Some people say that incident was most responsible for finally stripping the teflon cover off his empty shell.

Now we have another disaster in another part of the country because of these wind driven wildfires in California. Thousands of homes have been reduced to ashes and nearly a million people were displaced. Wow, lightning strikes twice. The president is awarded a mulligan. The opportunity is in place for Bush to correct the comprehensive failures from New Orleans. No matter how stupid this guy is and trust me, technology has yet to invent the instrument to measure how massively stupid he truly is, he couldn't possibly screw this one up. Yeah, and it never rains right after you wash and wax your car either. Bush announces he's coming to California to inspect the damage for himself. He plans to tour the affected area by helicopter. I see him sitting there with his little nose pressed up against the window offering insightful comments such as "wow, fires are bad" and "I'm hungry, how about some fried chicken and smoked ham for lunch." The plans were made initially for some quick helicopter touring and lunch with all the heck of a job firefighters and to thank the men for their hard work and service to their country.

Some of you may be thinking Bush can't win with you people. If he stays away, you criticize him for that and if he shows up, you criticize him for that. Wrong you are. Everybody in the world with access to CNN knows all about the fires and feels really bad for the affected people and want to help. They want to help constructively however, not self-servingly. Cities are sending firefighters, equipment and resources to help. The Red Cross and other relief organizations are collecting monetary donations, blankets, clothing and other daily essentials to help displaced people be able to live. The area was obviously designated a federal disaster zone, thereby allowing the few funds not designated for Iraq available to help. I'm sure the people there need more but the one thing they don't need, is a "nucular" idiot showing up there with a horde of flunkies to videotape their despair. I realize almost all these people are white and have money, but still, right now they share more in common with the poor, black residents of New Orleans than with a self serving wealthy, white imbecile in a work shirt. I heard the Dept. of the Interior Secretary, Dirk Kempthorne, claim in a televised interview how engaged Bush was and how much time he spent time "peppering" the secretary about the fire. Uh huh, Bush should just sign the necessary paperwork, send the check and stay the hell out of everybody's way. If he wants to pepper something, let him pepper his own lunch while safely tucked away in the White House. Then he can lie down, take a nap, and let the adults do what needs to be done. Good night Mr. President....
