Hurricane Katrina proves that Bush must be IMPEACHED, and NOW
Just watch the FReepers howl: "Do the DUmmies think Bush can prevent hurricanes? Will they claim he LIHOP'ed Katrina like they claim he LIHOP'ed 9/11?"

No President can prevent a hurricane, but a competent President can prepare for the inevitable so that, when a natural disaster occurs, he can direct government relief agencies to respond accordingly. George W. Bush has proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he is unfit to sit in the Oval Office.

Because he is so obsessed with plundering Iraq on the behalf of Halliburton, Monsanto, and all the rest, the National Guardsmen who would have been on hand to help their fellow Louisianians are located half a globe away. So is their high-water equipment, which would be better served in the streets of New Orleans than in the damaged marshes of southern Iraq.

Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi are hurting. Badly. And where is Bush now that the red states need him?

See? Thought so. Impeach this Coca-Cola cowboy now.

2. Puts the "War on Terror" in prospective, doesn't it?
While we are chasing non-existant boogeymen in the ME (fattening the profits of the War Profiteers and Big Oil), we are in a much weaker position to deal with the true Terror - a natural disaster like Katrina. When will the idiots wake up and see this? A single storm of Katrina's size is more destruction by several orders of magnitude than a band of terrorists could ever hope to wreck on this country. If this doesn't underscore the conceptual ridiculousness of the WOT, nothing will.

6. That's the thing
I, as just an unknown person out there, have been glued to the coverage and worried about those people out there. I can barely even get away from it for a few hours, so it's unfathomable to believe the president can just give it a 5 minute spot and 'go on with his life'. Sickening.

7. This is one of the worst things I think he has ever done. Or, I guess,
not done. For GOD'S SAKE! The hurricane hit RED STATES. I wonder how the Bush voters in them feel about his indifference?

And any delay in recovery will be his fault.

13. The nation is sick, diseased.
Edited on Tue Aug-30-05 05:31 PM by The Stranger
It's leader is sick, diseased, and so the nation has become sickened and diseased.

Sickened by denial of fundamental reality; strangled by secrecy and mass dysfunction on every level. The massacre of its environment, resources, it's very fundamental unity.

Because the leader is sickened, diseased, the soul of the nation is sickened and diseased, starved by lies and dying because of a lost war a world away that is based on lies.

The nation has become sickened, diseased.

14. Article on FEMA cuts from Sept. 2004
http://www.sfbg.com/38/52/news_fema.html

"...since 2001, key federal disaster mitigation programs, developed over many years, have been slashed and tossed aside. FEMA's Project Impact, a model mitigation program created by the Clinton administration, has been canceled outright. Federal funding of post-disaster mitigation efforts designed to protect people and property from the next disaster has been cut in half, and now communities across the country must compete for pre-disaster mitigation dollars.

As a result, some state and local emergency managers say, it's become more difficult to get the equipment and funds they need to most effectively deal with disasters. "

15. My opinion is that this is the second strike for the Dimson, and the
third strike is going to be even more tragic than the first two. We really need a leader and this experience with a moronic, unintelligent frat boy should make every American think about candidates, not just party lines. If America doesn't learn from this, we deserve what we get in the future.

16. He COULD have prevented the hurricane
Not all hurricanes, of course, but at least some of them... and lessened the impact of those that did happen.

Much of the action that occurs in the Atlantic during hurricane season is Bush's fault. If he'd paid attention to the environment at all, there would be about 50% less hurricane activity in the Atlantic. And if he paid more attention to the Gulf Coast, New Orleans wouldn't be sinking at the rate of 3 feet a century. If Bush had any ability to lead in his head, he'd have had New Orleans shored up long ago.

Didn't he do that in Florida before the election?

21. Vast incompetence that always manages to make billions
for him and his minions.

Probably one or three crimes to convict and cut out this cancer with.

One will do.
