Dems make Katrina into Florida 2000 (part II)

I imagine that someone else has probably already made this point, but I haven't seen it. When the Dems started hyperventilating that everything about Katrina was Bush's fault, I thought to myself that this is the same game plan we saw with the butterfly ballot in Palm Beach on election day in 2000. Democrats at the local level completely screw up their jobs and national Democrats and the MSM scream that it is all the fault of the GOP.

The parallel grew when they started screaming racism and blaming Bush. In 2000, voters in black precincts in counties where the election supervisors were Democrats cast a lot of invalid votes (of the 25 counties with the highest percentages of invalid ballots, 24 were run by Democrats). Yet, the liberals screamed that somehow the GOP was responsible. Now we have seen the same reaction in New Orleans. Democrats screw up and Bush gets branded a racist.

One more note on the claim that the GOP intimidated and disenfranchised black voters. In Florida, the only "evidence" that they could come up with was the fact that a police car had pulled over a motorist over a mile from a polling place. Apparently, flashing police lights a mile from one precinct demonstrated a state-wide plan by the evil GOP to intimidate black voters. That was the only evidence the radical liberals who made up the US Civil Rights Commission could come up with to support their conclusion.

I hadn't seen that comparison before, but it is very profound.

I like to think of this whole situation like this: The same people who have complained the last five years that America is a facist state are now complaining that the Feds didn't go in and take over - over the objections of the LA governor.

But of course if he had, they would now be calling for the President's impeachment.

It just all gets soooo wearying...can't we just go start our own country? I'd love to try living in an alternative universe that is run by republicans with a fair press. It's the fair press that is the stretch...oh, well.

Pat M, you're absolutely right. The left has sunk to carping and whining and shouting racism because they haven't had anything constructive to offer in years. If Bush would have violated accepted protocol it would have really been ugly.
