But the Bush bashing lately over the response to Katrina hasn't been deserved. This seems petty by those on the Left in the US. How can they turn this into a political issue at a terrible moment like this? Do they honestly believe that anyone, Republican or Democrat, would wish this type of destruction and pain on anyone?
Apparently Micheal Moore does:
"It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands has no transportation to get out of town," Moore wrote. "C'mon, they're black! ... Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days?"
So now Bush is racist. Now Moore is playing the race card? In a couple lines he's managed to suggest that the US government conspired to only rescue white people... How many Black people serve in the US government anyways? Somehow I find it hard they could have been on the conspiracy too - but that's just one idiot Canucks opinion.
Moore asks if Bush has "any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters."
The lament of soldiers being in Iraq not being able to help out at home I feel is fair game as far as I'm concerned. Though to say that they only signed up to help in national disasters is twitdoom magnified. Members of National Guard are trained to fight wars... But that's just a detail to Micheal Moore.
Moore acknowledged that "there will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you." He suggested that Bush not respond to his critics.
I got to ask this: if Micheal Moore insane? Seriously does he have some sort of mental illness or something? This line is just spooky. Doesn't he realize that what he has just been doing is "politicizing" the tragedy?
I surely hope this is a typo or something. Because honestly this reminds me of responses I've read spychopaths give on personality tests and not someone of Micheal Moore's stature.
I'm probably over reacting. I guess everyone is a little nuts and Micheal Moore isn't a spychopath. Though this is one heck of Moorism he's thrown out there.
