Katrina One Year Later
Before you go any further you need to listen to this clip .... HERE ....
What we now realize is that this event was the downfall not only of the incredibly incompetent administration of George Bush, but the beginning of the downfall of the Republican Party which acted like worse lap dogs than Tony Blair. The end will come 62 days 2 hours 57 minutes from the time I write this.
The American public thought it was great fun to destroy a country, occupy a non-belligerent nation, cause death and destruction to ourselves, and place ourselves in an economic position that could very well spell the end of our nation as a great power. All great fun or a great yawn until they saw Katrina and the utter indifference shown, not to some nation half a world away, but the poorest and weakest in our own nation.
They can't spin their way out of 1600 dead, 250,000 homeless and displaced. Massive fraud and waste by republican well-connecteds, and promises broken. Promises broken not to some vaguely percieved enemy such as the "war on terra", but to the oath of office that they took to perserve the safety and welfare of our nation.
