How the libs wanted Bush to act: A Katrina Fairy Tale
9/5/05 | self

Posted on 09/05/2005 6:56:05 AM PDT by NewJerseyJoe

Do the useful idiots, the moonbats, and the MSM ever stop to think about the absurdity of their cries -- of what Bush "should have" done? Here is how such a sequence of events might have unfolded........


...And George Bush strode through the midst of the vehicles, and the force of his being caused the traffic to ease, and the evacuation route was cleared, and the people were overjoyed; and as George Bush passed among the vehicles, to each he touched the cars, upon his left and his right; and each car that was touched did find its fuel tank filled.

In the day of the Great Storm, George Bush did direct his pilot to drop him in the very face of the maelstrom: And George Bush stood at the edge of the winds and the raging sea and stared into the black heart of Katrina; and hurling himself into the air, he did do battle with the storm, and strove mightily with it; and the storm relented, and decreased to Category 3, and veered away to the East;

And in that time a cry went up from among the city, that the levees had broken. And George Bush did make haste unto the levees and did hurl himself unto the breach; and the strength of his sinews was as of steel, and he did force together the sundered ends, and the breach did heal, and the Waters of Pontchartrain were restored;

And again a cry went up from the Superdome, where the people did suffer heat and thirst and depravity; and George Bush unyoked the roof of the Superdome, and uplifting his arms in supplication, he did cause a refreshing cool rain to fall upon the people, and they were cleansed, and their thirst sated, and their filth washed away; and then he caused a break in the clouds, and from thence came magic rays of sunshine, to fill the people’s hearts with joy.

And in that day the city was given unto much lawlessness, and the people did cry for deliverance from brutish cruelty; and George Bush did cause a great stone to fall from the sky, and shatter into ten thousand fragments; and from each of those fragments did grow a soldier of the National Guard, and the soldiers formed into companies, and the companies did disperse unto the city, and there they slew the evildoers; for George Bush had brought them forth from nothingness in but mere moments.

And then George Bush did meet with the mayor of the city, and he laid hands upon him, and in that hour the mayor grew a new pair, and was glad; and in like manner did George Bush meet with the governoress, and comforted her, and at the sound of his word, competence formed within her and began to grow, and she did not need to rely on the kindness of strangers;

And at George Bush’s word of command, the Buses of Nagin did roar to life, and to proceed to evacuation points; and having filled themselves with refugees, the buses did direct themselves out from the stricken land and unto the promised land of Texas;

And George Bush contemplated the flooded city, and his heart grew heavy with sadness; and in that day George Bush took up the mighty Staff of Halliburton, and did wield it; and he stretched forth the Staff against the waters, and the toxic stew did withdraw, and the trapped people did escape; and the plasma TVs were recovered, and the Nike sneakers were found in saleable condition, and the items of jewelry were returned intact to their display cases, and the DVDs were restored to the Wal-Mart shelves, and food and drink were brought unto the needy;

And taking up again the Staff of Halliburton, George Bush held it aloft over the tortured lands; and then with great power he did bring the Staff down again, and with it he smote the ground mightily in his anger; and the earth shuddered and the land did groan; and then went forth from that spot a mighty rumbling as of thunder; and to the wonderment of the people, the city did begin to rise from the depths of the sea and the delta; and the levees were renewed, and the seawall mounted toward the heavens, and the buildings did frame the skyline.

And when all the lands were successfully restored, and the people successfully healed, and the dislocated successfully reunited ... George Bush did stand forth to accept the heavy burden of blame as a Miserable Failure, as stipulated by the mainstream media; and George Bush did accept the yoke of shame and was impeached, and the GOP was disbanded, and liberal apologism flowered once again, and the vast right-wing conspiracy was exposed, and democrats were brought again to power, and the blind sheep were satisfied; and John Kerry did assume unto himself the mantle of leadership, and the people were restored, and air did clear, and there was peace throughout all the lands.

An excellent, lengthy post that debunks the major lies told by the left about the levees, troop levels needed to respond to the crisis, and the response of the federal government.

Louisiana did not reach out to a multi-state mutual aid compact for assistance until Wednesday, three state and federal officials said.

As of Saturday, Blanco still had not declared a state of emergency,

the senior Bush official said. Blanco did not want to give up her "power" to the Feds. Her only plan was: State officials had planned to turn to neighboring states for help with troops, transportation and equipment in a major hurricane. But in Katrina's case, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida were also overwhelmed, said Denise Bottcher, a Blanco spokesman

New Orleans City Council President Oliver Thomas "acknowledged that the city was surprised by the number of refugees left behind, but he said FEMA should have been prepared to assist."*********FEMA was there once they could get into the stricken areas while batteling the beginning of anarchy.....It just boggles the mind at how childish these supposed leaders are. Incompetence 101!

Blanco made two moves Saturday that protected her independence from the federal government: She created a philanthropic fund for the state's victims and hired James Lee Witt, Federal Emergency Management Agency director in the Clinton administration, to advise her on the relief effort......they are just hours away from a Cat 4-5 Hurricane and this is her idea of saving her citizens?

Meanwhile back at the WH:

Bush, who has been criticized, even by supporters, for the delayed response to the disaster, used his weekly radio address to put responsibility for the failure on lower levels of government. The magnitude of the crisis "has created tremendous problems that have strained state and local capabilities," he said. "The result is that many of our citizens simply are not getting the help they need, especially in New Orleans. And that is unacceptable."

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said one reason federal assets were not used more quickly was "because our constitutional system really places the primary authority in each state with the governor."

When the President got a good look at what was going on in New Orleans, and I don't mean the Hurricane, he said this - "The result is that many of our citizens simply are not getting the help they need, especially in New Orleans. And that is unacceptable." - I do believe it was at this point the Governor was gently pushed aside so the grown ups could take over. It is not at all clear to me what Blanco thought setting up a "philanthropic fund for the state's victims" at that stage when she still had not DECLARED A STATE OF EMERGENCY"

I think this mess really shows what putting RATS in office does:

RAT leadership = complain about everyone else not doing their job while you yourself do nothing and leave 300 buses empty.

I hope the admn does not let the RATS win the PR war when it is clear they are the ones mostly responsible.

The Biblical tone is, I think, perfectly appropriate.

Brainy liberals attribute god-like powers to the evil Boosh, you know. Sure, he's a moron and all that, but he is in control of reality as we know it. At least according to brainy liberals.

This is good but if he had done it, it would have been wrong in the eyes of the libs. He is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

Yea, verily, the National Guardsmen ...there they slew the evildoers... ?!?!

George Bush deserves to be impeached, convicted and much more in punishment for that sentence.

How dare the NG slay "evildoers"? They are simply misunderstood and oppressed by the the Evil Bush. Slaying is inappropriate.

They should be counseled and given new homes, new Nikes, new plasma TV's and anything else that their hearts now or ever in the future might desire.

Shame on you. Time to go back and edit this horrendous error on your part.

And W did lift up his cowboy hat unto the waters and behold the waters were parted and the Orleanites did pass among the waters without being wetted or inconvenienced in any way. And lo, there were buses awaiting on the far side of the deluge and the buses were filled with the lamenting. But their cries soon turned to hallelujahs as they were whisked away to various Howard Johnsons before you could say "continental breakfast."

You forgot that they were magic buses that appeared out of nowhere by the thousands, crossed impassable roads, didn't need fuel, and took up no space at all at their final destinations.

I think the only thing that you could accuse the government of is that they played this one too much by the rules. A disaster of this dimensions would have called for a short period of dictatorship where the government JUST ACTS whatever the progress of formally necessary democratic procedures.

But i readily admit that would have made your political left even shout louder...

Don't even START on that! I know, I just know in my heart, that sometime within the next few weeks, PETA or ASPCA or some other group is going to hold a press conference, saying George Bush didn't do enough to save the Creature-Americans of New Orleans. That will be followed by environmental whackos saying that George Bush is a miserable failure when it comes to cleaning up the pollution and toxins from the hurricane. And so it goes......

Hey, I'm a sucker for puppies as much as the next guy. But human beings, our fellow citizens, have got to come first.

Are you kidding? Even if he'd simply held up his hand and caused the winds to die and the waters to recede, they'd have just sneered, "Ugh! I told you he thinks he's God!!"

The truth is, it would not have mattered a wit what President Bush did; the media feeding frenzy would have altered course to fabricate/find or whatever was necessary to continue the attack. They are only capable of attacking, but never offering solutions. Sneering liberals never change--did anyone expect different?

Many here are concerned about the same thing. I believe enough American patriots, bloggers and others, are copying documentation of the events of Katrina which lay out exactly the who, what, when, where and why of the entire debacle.


The lies and unfounded accusations will not go unanswered.


I do agree with others that this is not the time for the administration to go openly defensive, but to continue to act in a manner of quiet coolness, calmly and efficiently implimenting their rescue and rebuilding plan, while the whining Dimocrats wail and and throw barbs.

Every time my liberal family members held something against President Bush (during the last election) I asked if they were setting a precedent for what was expected of Kerry if he were to win.

Very amusing, but incorrect. It presumes that W could have done something that liberals would have approved of. This is not the case! The left-wing, neocommunist, scumbag dems and their running dogs in the media exist only to weaken America. They do this by attacking W on every, repeat, every issue.

There is nothing W could have done that he wouldn't have been criticized just as vigorously for. It must be tearing Hillie apart to have to appear rational and stay out of the attack on America.

Again, amusing but misses the real point of the criticism by suggesting that the liberal dems care about what actually happened.
