What the Dems say about Gustav when they think no one’s listening
Via Power Line this morning, here’s a lovely example of what highly-placed Democrats are saying about Gustav and the potential to hit New Orleans when they think no one’s listening:
John Hinderaker sums it up perfectly:
This is what Hurricane Katrina was all about. Mainstream reporters committed malpractice, repeatedly reporting things that weren’t true. They did this to try to help their party at a time when the Democrats needed help badly, and they succeeded. The Democrats are desperately hoping for another New Orleans hurricane that will kill thousands of people and thus distract attention from the Republican Convention. You can draw your own conclusion about the moral stature of these people.
Precisely. Obama and his team draw on the worried looks and sound the heartfelt concern when the MSM’s cameras are on but this is very, very much what they’re thinking in the background. Republicans, on the other hand, are setting up options to actually help people affected. Not that they’ll get any credit for doing it but that’s the way the left in this country works. Unless it’s a massive, inefficient government program paid for by 55% taxation on anyone making over $70K/year and confiscation of any business profits over some Dem-defined figure, it’s just not worthy.
And I note how fast they’re all saying that it’s proof of God that something bad’s going to happen to someone else. Nice. That’ll really help, lefties, thanks a bunch.
