The Night Guard on Duty When The Warehouse Burns Down

The Night Guard can point his finger all he wants, make excuses, blame anyone he can think of, but in the end, he's the guy on duty there to protect the warehouse and it burned down.

Bush is the Night Guard. The Gulf Coast was his warehouse. It's not political anymore. It's humanistic. We're the richest, most powerful country in the world. And we're still seeing bodies floating in the street down there. Still. Like it's the third world.

He can dump Brown, blame the Governor, whine about whatever he wants to. You can't spin it. Why are we behaving like the weakest, poorest, worst organized country in the world? He let America become that, and now that's what we have. A million shattered lives from Katrina. And it will always be etched on our history; His legacy.

Meanwhile: Republicans still plan to cut spending to the poor. Nice timing. Compassionate conservatism in full swing:
WASHINGTON - Republicans are going ahead with long-standing plans to trim Medicaid, food stamps and other benefits, even though party moderates are balking at cutting programs that aid the poor while hundreds of thousands are homeless from Hurricane Katrina. - more
