While perusing the media coverage of the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti, I had a flashback.
Does anyone remember a storm that hit New Orleans, Louisiana a couple of years ago?
In the aftermath of that storm, fingers were pointed. Blame was assigned. Remember?
It was George W. Bush's fault. It was FEMA's fault. I seem to remember Reverend (and I use the term loosely) Pat Robertson saying Hurricane Katrina was a judgment from God because of the hedonism and debauchery that runs rampant in the city. Well, he's at it again, isn't he? I wish he'd just shut up. He's giving real Christians a bad rep.
The storm changed the perspective of many people, including myself. Another blogger who I considered one of my best blogger buddies at the time was changed also.
I became less racist. He became more Liberal. Fanatically more Liberal. He is absolutely mad now.
He is married to a so-called intellectual. She is a doctor of some sort (he never enlightened his blog readers what she is a doctor of), who lectures all over the country, and also a raving Liberal.
She had her own blog. On her blog, she announced George Bush was at fault because a hospital ship was a day or two tardy getting to the port of New Orleans to aid in the rescue operations there.
Yes, I know, the connection between the two is tenuous at best, but I seem to recall her biased assessment of the situation made a sort of discombobulated sense in a Liberal, pseudo-intellectual kind of way. Somehow, it was the President's fault.
I wish I could explain her logic but it appears her blog is now non-existent, and frankly, I don't remember much of what she wrote, except that she blamed the President.
The media coverage I was referring to in the first paragraph was this. Here's a teaser for those who don't follow links:
The operating room is prepped with oxygen tanks, ventilators and a roster of blood donors. But while the USS Carl Vinson's medical facilities perhaps exceed those of any other triage center nearby, it had remained essentially unused since it arrived off the coast of Port-au-Prince early Friday
When did the Haitian earthquake strike? Wasn't it a few days before Friday?
Why is the hospital ship not helping? Is it political? Where are the incessant accusations from the left now? Why isn't anyone pointing fingers? Why is no one assigning blame? Who is at fault?
What is Obama doing?
Why aren't Liberal bloggers and the state run media blaming Obama?
Hurricane Katrina was all Bush's fault. Remember? At least that's what we were told.
The media says so. It must be true. Right?
I wonder how Rahm Emanuel and Obama and the rest of the gang can turn this latest crisis into a political advantage.
Listen: If Hurricane Katrina was George W. Bush's fault, then it stands to reason the blame for the Haitian earthquake lies squarely on Barack Hussein Obama's shoulders.
What are we going to do about that?
