LET'S LET NO SUBTLETY STAND IN THE WAY OF WHAT I'M SAYING: SCREW HIM
That's right, the Decider will appear today in New Orleans, sight of the disaster that saw the Crescent City sink beneath a flood still leaving it devastated a year later. And in exactly 14 days, the President and all his apologists will conduct the so-bizarre-it's-hard-to-explain, 5th Year Commemoration of 9/11.
Now I'm not gonna go off on all variety of theories as to whether the Administration caused, facilitated, allowed, or ignored any or all of the events of those two horrible days. There are enough conspiracy buffs to fill pages with those stories, so let them run with it if they want. (Here's me supposing that you juuuuuust might find a piece or two today saying as much.)
But I will state without equivocation that neither competence, nor concern, nor honesty, nor leadership were much in evidence during New York's or New Orleans' darkest hours. Reading about a fucking goat, deer-in-headlights gaze on display for all the world to see in one event; gee-tar strumming photo-op & You're doin' a heckuva job, Brownie, during the other.
And certainly not worthy of flag-waving histrionics, faux-patriotic feel-goodism, or pre-election leveraging of fear & pride. He should be ashamed of his performance on both days. The decent thing to do would be to disappear today and on 9/11, and let Americans deal with both events on their own.
Just the way they were left to deal with them when they actually happened.
