Over Reactive Hysterics
The nightmare in New Orleans was real. It was terrible. It was the worst thing to ever happen to the nation. It was a hurricane that took out a city of sin. It happened last week. There's plenty of blame to go around, but that won't fix anything now as the damage has been done. Learning from mistakes will require much study, but some have shown an unwillingness to be educated.
Things were made worse by false reports from the emotional misfits on the left with the media reporting every word against President Bush they could find, while praising the ineptitude of the democratic governor and senator–two very emotional women who panicked when put to the test, and who set bad examples for the people in the state.
We've also seen pathetic actors like Sean Penn race down there for photo-ops, only his little boat that couldn't hold anyone started sinking the minute he put in the water and he had to frantically bail it out. Stay home Penn, and count your money as we all know that's your god. "Revs" Jesse Jackson and his wannabe copy high tailed it down there for the cameras. Notice that they only show up after events, and while there are plenty of media to cover their whining tirades taking advantage of the poor lost souls who listen to them.
This over-reaction is in the process of backfiring on democrats, again.
A Washington Post-ABC survey (poll) found that president Bush is not seen by most as the left has tried to make him out to be. In fact, most people have great confidence in the president to stay calm in the storm, which is the mark of a real leader.
President Bush said now is not the time to point fingers and he did not respond to calls for a commission to investigate the response.
Remember that the 9/11 commission's findings are now very much in doubt due to the cover-up of information by certain members appointed from Clinton administration.
"One of the things people want us to do here is play the blame game," Bush said. "We've got to solve problems. There will be ample time to figure out what went right and what went wrong."
Governor, Kathleen Blanco and Senator Mary Landrieu, both democrats, failed by panicking in the early stages, thus proving themselves unworthy of the office they currently hold.
Gov. Blanco resisted early pleas to declare martial law, and her indecision's opened the way for looters, rapists and killers to make New Orleans an unholy hell, costing perhaps hundreds of lives. The governors job was to evacuate the area most effected. She didn't. Bush had to step in and make the call.
The overly-hysterical senator Mary Landrieu (D), threatened on national television to punch out the president -- a felony, even as a threat. Her emotional outbursts and complete lack of confidence both during after the hurricane only made things worse for the survivors. Those watching on TV saw a deer in the headlights. After her incompetence was exposed, she then started blaming the president for not doing her job.
Of course this will all be dealt with when these two woman are up for reelection, which they will have a very hard time winning.
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin blew it by not evacuating soon enough and waited until the storm became a catagory 5 hurricane which was then less than 24 hours before impact.
The Mayor has endorsed the gay event Southern Decadence and promoted the activities in a letter stating: "There is no place like this on Earth! Southern Decadence XXXII is an exciting event. We welcome you and know that you can anticipate great food, great music and great times in New Orleans." The event has been rescheduled in spite of the hurricane and deaths of thousands.

Republican Gov. Haley Barbour did not hesitate in neighboring Mississippi, and looters, rapists and killers have not turned the streets of Gulfport and Biloxi into killing fields. He handled the hurricane in a professional manner using his brain first and emotions later which saved countless lives.
The president said that he and his Cabinet members were focused on planning in several areas of immediate need _ restoring basic services to affected areas, draining the water from New Orleans, removing debris, assessing public health and safety threats and housing for those displaced by the storm. "Most importantly," Bush said, officials are trying to figure out how to get Social Security checks to people now scattered across the country in private homes, churches and other shelters.
"This administration is not going to rest until every life is saved, until every family is reconnected, until the recovery is complete," he said.
"Bureaucracy is not going to stand in the way of getting the job done for the people," the president said after a meeting at the White House with his Cabinet on storm recovery efforts.
"What I intend to do is lead an investigation to find out what went right and what went wrong," Bush said. "We still live in an unsettled world. We want to make sure we can respond properly if there is a WMD attack or another major storm."
The problem for the democrats is leadership, and the total lack of it in their party. The emotional misfits are incapable of dealing with reality in a calm thoughtful way, instead running off into hysteria with their hands flailing in the air looking for someone to blame and call names, just like some snotty kids do at recess when they can't get their way, or when they lose a contest.
The liberal media doesn't realize how badly this shows on democrats until it's too late. Then comes the lies and cover-ups afterwards, pouring salt on an open wound.
Can it get any worse for democrats? Stay tuned!
