Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Washington comPost: GOP may delay convention due to Gustav

That sure is newsworthy…but the comPost just couldn’t help itself with this crap:

For Bush and Republican presidential candidate John McCain, Gustav threatens to provide an untimely reminder of Hurricane Katrina. A new major storm along the Gulf Coast would renew memories of one of the low points of the Bush administration, while pulling public attention away from McCain’s formal coronation as the GOP presidential nominee.

Staging a convention during a major natural disaster would be a public relations challenge for either political party. But GOP officials say the burden could be especially heavy for their party, whose reputation was tarred by the Bush administration’s bungling of Katrina and its aftermath in 2005.

One narrative the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) still clings to is that the Katrina mess was Bush’s fault.  It has been shown exhaustively that La. Democrats (then-governor Blanco and N.O. Mayor Ray “School Bus” Nagin) dropped the ball with that.

I mean, Katrina flattened south MS and south AL, but their Republican governors implemented their plans, and it worked out fine.  Plus, Hurricane Wilma did more monetary damage to FL right after Katrina, but FL’s Republican governor had prepared well and executed the plan flawlessly.  It’s clear that incompetence struck La., but it wasn’t Bush’s.

(Sidebar: “Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida as a Category 5 storm in August 1992, and the sluggish federal response was castigated by state leaders as well as then-candidate Bill Clinton in his successful bid to defeat President George H.W. Bush that fall.” Florida had an anemic plan for Andrew, and its governor in ’92 was Lawton Chiles…a Democrat. Go figure. It’s as if Dems are so betrothed to a big federal government that that abdicate all decision-making to the feds.)

But anywho, read that excerpt again, though.  It reads like a Team Barry press conference: “For Bush and Republican presidential candidate John McCain, Gustav threatens to provide an untimely reminder of Hurricane Katrina.”  Exactly WHAT did McCain do wrong during the Katrina fallout that makes Gustav an “untimely reminder”?  WHAT did McCain do with regards to Katrina that Gustav would remind people of?  Barry O and the Dumbocrats try this whole “Bush-McCain” link, and we’re used to that, but now the comPost is getting on board.  Howard Dean must have faxed them their talking points a little late.

Nope…no liberal media bias!
