Where Are They Now?



In 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit and the levees in New Orleans gave way, the liberals came scurrying out of the woodwork to point a finger at the Bush administration. They leveled charges that ranged from FEMA being too slow to react all the way to actually making the accusation that the government had blown the levees so that it would destroy the homes of people of color. I don't want to rehash all the lame accusations that were made, but rather wanted to simply remind everyone of how the Democrats reacted at that time. Remember?

Now fast forward almost 3 years and we have massive flooding across America's Heartland, with levees breaking up and down the Mississippi and Rock Rivers. We have Cedar Rapids facing several billion dollars in loses. Small towns that are almost entirely underwater. We have farmers who have lost nearly all of their corn crop. Thousands of people have lost their homes and nearly everything they own. You've seen it. It's all over the news. But something is missing.... Where are those screaming liberals now? Why are they not blaming Bush for all the rain? Why are they not blaming the government for not building or rebuilding levees and flood walls? This has been going on for a couple of weeks now and President Bush has not made it here yet, although he is coming through on Thursday. Where are those of the Democratic party now? Why are they not out here screaming like they did with Hurricane Katrina? Why are they silent? Hmmmm?

I think we all know the reason why.

Excellent point! The silence IS deafening.
Also note that hurricane Katrina didn't just affect New Orleans- Mississippi was hit even harder (Biloxi, if I recall correctly). And amazingly, the towns in MS have gotten rebuilt much quicker than NO. Perhaps there is a bit of lameness at the state level in LA?, yet the mainstream media continues to blame Bush and label him as racist. . . sigh.
