Chicken Little vs. Chickenhawk

If there's one thing the Bush Administration is good at doing, it's playing the victim. Regardless of the fact that the Republican Party controls the White House, Senate and House (the Supreme Court soon), they always cry like spoiled brats when someone calls them on their failures. They denounce anyone who disagrees with their mode of thinking as traitors or accuse the opposition of playing politics.

Fuck that.

Reality has finally set in folks. The championship fight is Chicken Little vs. Chickenhawk.

And for once, Chicken Little will be vindicated. The progressive community has been screaming that "the sky is falling!" BECAUSE IT IS FALLING. The Gulf Coast region of the United States is descending into chaos because of the failed leadership of the Bush Administration. During last year's campaign, John Kerry described George's policies as "more of the same."

He was right.

Everyone in this country--Republican, Independent, Democrat, Green, etc.--must realize that George Bush will keep his word when he says he will "stay the course." The next few years will be no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners, all-out warfare because of his incompetence; and the incompetence of those around him. He has never admitted a mistake and I would not start expecting one now that we are beginning to bear the fruit of his poisonous seed-spreading. He is a danger to society.

From the BBC:
US President George Bush has admitted there is "frustration" at the speed of the relief effort following Hurricane Katrina's hit on the Gulf Coast.

"I fully understand people wanting things to have happened yesterday. I mean I understand the anxiety of people on the ground... So there is frustration but I want people to know there's a lot of help coming," he said in an interview with ABC television.


Mr Bush dismissed criticism that he had been slow in responding to the unfolding disaster, and had not yet set foot on the ground.

"I hope people don't play politics during this period of time," he said.

"There'll be ample time for politics. But now's the time to focus attention, our compassion and our resources on helping people who need help".

He said he wanted to go to the scene but did not want to disrupt the emergency operation.

Once again, George W. Bush, the Chickenhawk-in-Chief is AWOL.
