Bush aide O’Dell says New Orleans City Hall ‘failing’ at recovery

I thought having to do without my computer for 6 days was bad! I can’t imagine what a blow it must be for someone to be called a failure by someone from the Bush administration! OUCH!

Douglas O’Dell, federal recovery coordinator said the following about Mayor Ray Nagin’s recovery director, Ed Blakely:

“I’m basically asking Blakely, who’s probably getting paid a whole hell of a lot more money than I am, to do his damn job,” O’Dell said.

“He’s there not only to plan, but to execute. Not only to manage, but lead. He’s not an elected official, but as a nonelected official he wields enormous influence over the future of this city and the speed of its recovery,” he continued. “And he’s failing, in my view.”

Dang! Guess that’s why we haven’t seen any cranes in the sky yet even though Blakely promised them quite some time ago.

George Bush Hates Animals
August 12th, 2008 under Bush, Environment, violence. [ Comments: none ]

New Orleans ProtestFor a while during his presidency, I thought George Bush was simply stupid. Now, not so much. I think he’s evil. He probably gets some of it from his mom (No, some of us will never forget).

Let’s see supply-side fans. How’s the economy since the most corporation-friendly president has been in office? Seems W has now decided that endangering the lives of people isn’t enough.

The Bush administration yesterday proposed a regulatory overhaul of the Endangered Species Act to allow federal agencies to decide whether protected species would be imperiled by agency projects, eliminating the independent scientific reviews that have been required for more than three decades.

I can’t wait to see what other brilliant stuff he decides to do before he leaves office!


Scott McClellan’s New Book Blasts Bush
May 28th, 2008 under Books, Bush, Hypocrisy, Katrina, Politics. [ Comments: none ]

One of my favorite quotes from “What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception” :

“History appears poised to confirm what most Americans today have decided: that the decision to invade Iraq was a serious strategic blunder. No one, including me, can know with absolute certainty how the war will be viewed decades from now when we can more fully understand its impact. What I do know is that war should only be waged when necessary, and the Iraq war was not necessary.”

“The collapse of the administration’s rationales for war, which became apparent months after our invasion, should never have come as such a surprise. … In this case, the ‘liberal media’ didn’t live up to its reputation[of being biased against Bush]. If it had, the country would have been better served.”

“One of the worst disasters in our nation’s history became one of the biggest disasters in Bush’s presidency. Katrina and the botched federal response to it would largely come to define Bush’s second term,” he writes. “And the perception of this catastrophe was made worse by previous decisions President Bush had made, including, first and foremost, the failure to be open and forthright on Iraq and rushing to war with inadequate planning and preparation for its aftermath.”

Bush Administration Criticizes Myanmar Government Response to Disaster
May 21st, 2008 under Bush, Hypocrisy, Katrina. [ Comments: none ]

A senior U.S. diplomat said Tuesday that Myanmar’s military-led government will be responsible for a second catastrophe if thousands of desperate cyclone survivors die because the junta continues to bar foreign aid and disaster workers.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Scot Marciel told lawmakers that the generals running Myanmar, also known as Burma, cannot manage the distribution of aid needed to help people facing disease, malnutrition and exposure to the elements.

“The situation is increasingly desperate,” Marciel said. He called the government’s response to Cyclone Nargis appalling and blamed its failure to give foreign aid workers greater access to victims for putting hundreds of thousands of lives at risk.

“Let me be clear: if assistance is not allowed in, and thousands of Burmese perish, the responsibility for this catastrophe will fall squarely on the shoulders of Senior Gen. Than Shwe,” the head of the country’s ruling junta, and other leaders, Marciel said in testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia. “Every day that goes by and more people suffer, increasingly the blame falls on the government.”

Bush’s response? “I think Thannie is doin’ a heckuva job.”


SOTU: A Complete Waste of Time

I’m with Editor B, with so many lies from Bush about how he would take care of the Gulf Coast after Katrina, I can’t trust Bush. Not to mention the WMDs, the cakewalk in Iraq, punishment for the one who “outed” Valerie Plame, etc.

It would be insane to think that a man with no grasp of reality could accurately describe the state of our union and figure out how to fix what’s wrong with it unless the problem is that corporations need a handout and the rich are overtaxed.

Lyrics:
Dear Mr. President,
Come take a walk with me.
Let’s pretend we’re just two people and
You’re not better than me.
I’d like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly.

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud?

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why?

Dear Mr. President,
Were you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
How can you say
No child is left behind?
We’re not dumb and we’re not blind.
They’re all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell.

What kind of father would take his own daughter’s rights away?
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
I can only imagine what the first lady has to say
You’ve come a long way from whiskey and cocaine.

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye?

Let me tell you ’bout hard work
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you ’bout hard work
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you ’bout hard work
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you ’bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
You don’t know nothing ’bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
Oh

How do you sleep at night?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Dear Mr. President,
You’d never take a walk with me.
Would you?


The Economic Consequences of Bush
December 11th, 2007 under Bush, poor. [ Comments: 1 ]

bush.jpgFrom Nobel laureate, Joseph E. Stiglitz:

Up to now, the conventional wisdom has been that Herbert Hoover, whose policies aggravated the Great Depression, is the odds-on claimant for the mantle “worst president” when it comes to stewardship of the American economy. Once Franklin Roosevelt assumed office and reversed Hoover’s policies, the country began to recover. The economic effects of Bush’s presidency are more insidious than those of Hoover, harder to reverse, and likely to be longer-lasting. There is no threat of America’s being displaced from its position as the world’s richest economy. But our grandchildren will still be living with, and struggling with, the economic consequences of Mr. Bush.

Some 5.3 million more Americans are living in poverty now than were living in poverty when Bush became president. America’s class structure may not have arrived there yet, but it’s heading in the direction of Brazil’s and Mexico’s.
