Like everything else advocated by the extreme left today’s call for impeaching President Bush for the failures of Kathleen Blanco and Ray Nagin are not producing results and never will. The very fact that the politically and morally dyslexic sheep of the left have taken up yet another hate-driven movement that’s destined to fail indicates that they are so driven in their campaign against Bush that they will literally try anything, say anything or do anything, no matter how outlandish, to achieve their goal.
Like every other “pivotal” issue they’ve adopted before, this one will be dropped in a few days in favor of the next one. Katrina replaced Sheehan, Sheehan replaced Plame, Plame replaced……who remembers or cares. The extreme left has the attention span of a toddler and the maturity to match. These are the people who are trying to hijack what’s left of the Democrat party and they’re doing it with a continuous series of temper tantrums.
I keep thinking that someday the adult in charge over there will step up and introduce a little discipline back into the party, but it doesn’t look like there’s an adult left. If the kids have actually taken over like it seems then we might as well prepare ourselves for another 3 years of tantrums before we reach the inevitable dissolution of what was once a decent political party. One that I rarely agreed with but was never ashamed of. It’s been quite a while since that democrat party existed. It looks like it’ll be a while before it does again.
What a shame.
And from the “Blame Game” department, this from the NYTimes:
As criticism of the response to Hurricane Katrina has mounted, one of the most pointed questions has been why more troops were not available more quickly to restore order and offer aid. Interviews with officials in Washington and Louisiana show that as the situation grew worse, they were wrangling with questions of federal/state authority, weighing the realities of military logistics and perhaps talking past each other in the crisis. To seize control of the mission, Mr. Bush would have had to invoke the Insurrection Act, which allows the president in times of unrest to command active-duty forces into the states to perform law enforcement duties. But decision makers in Washington felt certain that Ms. Blanco would have resisted surrendering control, as Bush administration officials believe would have been required to deploy active-duty combat forces before law and order had been re-established. While combat troops can conduct relief missions without the legal authority of the Insurrection Act, Pentagon and military officials say that no active-duty forces could have been sent into the chaos of New Orleans on Wednesday or Thursday without confronting law-and-order challenges.
