"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Holier Than Thou



George has ordered the ground forces in New Orleans to draw no distinction between looting food and water and nonessential items...
Bush drew no line between those looting stores for survival supplies like food and water and those stealing television sets that are of no use with electricity out in New Orleans. "I think there ought to be zero tolerance of people breaking the law during an emergency such as this, whether it be looting, or price-gouging at the gasoline pump or taking advantage of charitable giving, or insurance fraud," Bush said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America." Looting has run rampant in New Orleans as stranded victims of Hurricane Katrina await emergency assistance. "If people need water and food, we're going to do everything we can to get them water and food. But it's very important for the citizens in all affected areas to take personal responsibility and assume kind of a civic sense of responsibility so the situation doesn't get out of hand, so people don't exploit the vulnerable," Bush said.
What? The victims of Katrina should "take personal responsibility and assume kind of a civic sense of responsibility"... Are you kidding me? Did those words actually come out of your mouth Mr. President? You, yes you, are at the very least partly responsible for the dire predicament these people are currently in. Why so slow on support? Why are you just now ordering military relief? Why didn't you return from your vacation sooner? You have miserably failed the people of New Orleans, and you have the nerve to cast shame on these people who are just trying to find food and shelter. Shame on you Mr. President.
