At least THIS time he showed some guts
President Bush had no sooner blown it with Katrina (play on words intended) but what he blew it here in Wisconsin. For those of you who aren't too familiar with the situation here in Wisconsin, a few weeks ago this state experienced a series of thunderstorms and tornadoes (think supercell) which devastated the villages of Stoughton and Viola, WIsconsin. Well, in an all too predictable move, President Bush has denied our request for Federal Aid.
Now, I must admit--this is one case in which the gutless wonder has actually shown a modicum of courage. Granted, he didn't have that much to begin with; he is still the ball-less coward who skipped out of actual combat service in Vietnam and who depends on bullied lackeys to protect his reputation and over-blown ego. But for once he actually allowed his rapacity to overcome hos cowardice.
When Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf States, he just sat by and did nothing while a red state populated by lower class citizens was ravaged by a Category Four Hurricane. Kind of like what he did during 911, only this time his cowardice and apathy lasted for a walloping four days. But when his beloved Texas was threatened he had no problem in mobilizing every potential helper and tat helper's immediate family to save the favorite haunts of the Bush Crime Family.
Now shall we take a look at what he has done to Wisconsin? For those of you who don't know what I am talking about, a brief explanation may be required. A few weeks ago our state experienced a super cell of tornadic/thunderstorm activity which ravaged the southeastern corner of the state and caused severe damage to the villages of Stoughton and Viola. What was the Bush response? He has denied our request for FEMA aid. Of course I am sure that this had nothing to do with the fact that Wisconsin rejected Bush in both, 2000 and 2004; and I'm certain that it has nothing to do with the fact that our governor and both of our United States Senators are Democrats. And if you believe that I have some swamp property in down town New Orleans that I'd like to sell you.
For once in his courage- depleted career, the gutless wonder has ignored the yellow stripe down his back and allowed the true, rapacious nature of American conservatism to shine through. For once we saw the real George Bush in all his glory--petty, vengeful and malicious.
What can I say? President Bush calls himself a compassionate conservative, and I have to agree with him. He truly is. No one conserves their compassion the way this guy does
