Unable To Change Gears
Bush fiddles as NOLA drowns
repug repubs
Seems like the president has trouble changing gears on the fly.   He had trouble on the morning of 9-11 and during the latest crisis in NOLA.   This time he was in full mode damage control from the Cindy Sheehan debacle.   He was just "Getting on with his life" which is evidently cheesey pr photo-ops.   Cheney was on vacation in Montana, Andrew Card on vacation in New England, Condi Rice taking in Broadway shows and shopping (Hip Boots probably).   Frist actually beat Bush in air time on the cable news networks.   FEMA Director Mike Brown who was asked to leave his last private sector job and Homeland Security chief got beat up on the air by CNN.   Fox News Network reporters breaking down on the air describing the death and misery.   Australians were stranded and British online news portals with reporters on the ground documenting America's Shame.   Bush making more 8th grade "C" student quality speeches, ringing as hollow as the man making them.   Some help finally showing up after 5 days of post apocolyptic hell broadcast live, upclose and personal to the world.   It seems that Bush's handlers being out of pocket left Bush to make decisions on his own which is as big a disaster for this administration as the huricane was for the people of NOLA.   With one of Bush's rare glimpses of reality, admits that "Results Not Acceptable".   People finally waking up to the character of this compasionate conservative.   Mayor of NOLA Ray Nagin demanding help be sent and praising Lt. Gen Honore as a "Jown Wayne dude" who finally was put in charge and started getting things done.   On a sweep of flooded area, Honore stopped his effort to rescue several mothers with small babies, responding to the reporter after they were rescued: "We will get this done, even if we have to do it one at a time."   Saturday, Homeland Security "Wouldn't Let the Red Cross into NOLA to deliver food" saying it would hamper getting people out of the area.   What's a couple more days... Mary Landrieu (D. LA) said Saturday that FEMA has inexplicably failed to take advantage of offers of help. "I understand that the U.S. Forest Service had water-tanker aircraft available to help douse the fires raging on our riverfront, but FEMA has yet to accept the aid. When Amtrak offered trains to evacuate significant numbers of victims - far more efficiently than buses - FEMA again dragged its feet," Landrieu said. "Offers of medicine, communications equipment and other desperately needed items continue to flow in, only to be ignored by the agency.

30,000 weblogs. One Day. One Voice.
When the list reaches 30,000, a date and a word will be listed on the page. On that date, every weblog on the list agrees to make a single post with the word as the title. The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
