My Bush Vs. NOLA Theory

2 comments April 30th, 2007at 01:04pm Posted by Eli

I think I have finally figured out why Bush hates NOLA so much. It’s not because it has so many poor black people, or because it’s mostly Democratic – those only explain his callous indifference.

New Orleans destroyed his presidency. That was the turning point where everyone who was not hopelessly hooked on the Republican Kool-Aid realized that Dubya’s strong-leader-who-will-protect-us-all pose was a total sham. And everything went downhill from there.

He can’t salvage his presidency, but by God, he can make New Orleans pay for not getting out of the way of that damn hurricane, and for not sitting down and shutting up and pretending to be grateful for whatever superficial days-late photo-op charity he saw fit to bestow upon them.

The history books will unanimously wonder what we ever saw in this cretinous lizard.

    I do tend to think that the administration’s belief was that if they did do everything they could to fix it, it would have destroyed Bush’s credibility with “the base.” By not fixing it, he just destroyed his credibility with people who would probably not vote for him anyway.

    or something like that.

    I think he could have done something without losing any points. He just didn’t care to.

    I don’t think it ever occurred to him that the rest of the country might actually give a shit about NOLA going down the toilet.
