Do They Hate President Obama That Much Or Are They Just That Damned Stupid?

August 22, 2013

Here’s a thought…

How about we just call them STUPID, MOUTH BREATHING, INBRED, RACIST BASTARDS and be done with it.

44% SAID THEY WEREN’T SURE???????

That shouldn’t surprise anyone though.

At one point a poll was taken and 62% of republicans thought Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11.

Does anyone remember what ‘Bush The Lesser’ was doing before and during Hurricane Katrine?

Cat-5 Hurricane Katrina bears down on New Orleans and the Mississippi gulf. Both states are down nearly 8,000 National Guard troops because they are in Iraq — with most of the rescue gear needed.

Bush is on vacation.

The day before Katrina makes landfall, Bush rides his bike for two hours.

The day Katrina hits, he goes to John McCain’s birthday party, and lies to old people about the multi-billion-dollar pharmaceutical company welfare boondoggle.

People are dying, the largest port of entry in the United States (and fifth largest in the World) is under attack. Troops and supplies are desperately needed. The levees are cracking and the emergency 1-1/2 ton sandbags are ready, but there aren’t enough helicopters or pilots to set them before the levees fail. The mayor of New Orleans begs for Federal coordination, but there is none, and the sandbagging never gets done.

Bush goes to San Diego, to play guitar with a country singer and lie to the military about how Iraq is just exactly like WWII.

The levees give way, filling New Orleans with water, sewage, oil and chemicals. Ten percent of all US exports, and 50% of all agricultural exports ordinarily go through this port. It is totally destroyed.

Bush decides he’ll end his vacation a couple of days early — BECAUSE HE HAS TICKETS TO A PADRES GAME.

Ah yes…Can’t miss the ball game.

Oh…but he did fly over New Orleans and look at it out of the window of Air Force 1 on his way to home.

Ya did a heck of a job Georgie!

Here’s how Bush The Lesser helped New Orleans in the years leading up to Katrina.

February 2001
Bush’s first budget proposed more than half a billion dollars worth of cuts to the Army Corps of Engineers for the 2002 fiscal year. Bush proposed half of what his own officials said was necessary for the critical Southeast Louisiana Flood Control Project (SELA)—a project started after a 1995 rainstorm flooded 25,000 homes and caused a half billion dollars in damage.

Bush did this to offset the tax break he gave to the top 1% of rich Americans. The first major economic initiative pursued by the president was a massive tax cut for the rich, enacted in June of 2001. Bush signed his massive $1.3 trillion income tax cut into law-a tax cut that severely depleted the government of revenues it needed to address critical priorities.

February 2002
Bush provided just $5 million for maintaining and upgrading critical hurricane protection levees in New Orleans—one fifth of what government experts and Republican elected officials in Louisiana told the administration was needed. Bush knew SELA needed $80 million to keep working, but the he only proposed providing a quarter of that.

February 2004
The SELA project sought $100 million to repair the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain levees, but Bush offered only $16.5 million. The Army Corps of Engineers asked for $27 million to pay for hurricane protection upgrades around Lake Pontchartrain—but the White House cut that to $3.9 million. Gaps in levees around Lake Pontchartrain & the Industrial Canal, which were supposed to be filled by 2004, were not filled because of budget shortfalls. Repair work on the levees, including the ones that failed, was stopped due to lack of funds.

Let’s see how other Presidents handled some hurricanes.

Bush The Smarter(41) (But not by much.)

August 1992, he was in the midst of a campaign for re-election. Yet, he cut off his campaigning the day before and went to Washington where he marshalls the largest military operation on US soil in history. He sent in 7,000 National Guard and 22,000 regular military personnel, and all the gear to begin the clean up within hours after Andrew passed through Florida.

~President Clinton

September 1999, Hurricane Floyd — Cat-3, was bearing down on the Carolinas and Virginia. President Clinton was in Christchurch, New Zealand, about 9,000 miles away, – meeting with President Jiang of China. He made the proclamation that only Presidents can make and declared the areas affected by Floyd “Federal Disaster Areas” so the National Guard and Military can begin to mobilize. Then he cut short his meetings overseas and flew home to coordinate the rescue efforts. All one day BEFORE a Cat-3 hit the coast.

~President Nixon

August 1969, Cat-5 Hurricane Camille hit about the same place as Katrina, President Nixon had already readied the National Guard and ordered all Gulf rescue vessels and equipment from Tampa and Houston to follow the Hurricane in. There were over 1,000 regular military with two dozen helicopters to assist the Coast Guard and National Guard within hours after the skies cleared.

I can see how the Teabaggers and Republicans would want to forget about the 8 years of Bush 43’s disaster responses and illegal wars.

Luckily for Bush, a black guy won the presidential election and gave them someone to focus their hate on. They can, and have tried, to deny and forget the mayhem that was caused by the criminals that were the Bush 43 administration.

But they’ll never get away from the fact that the Bush so called presidency was a disaster for the country and the world.

That fact will never go away.
