Barbara Bush - Please stick a SOCK in your mouth!!!!!!

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this --this is working very well for them."

I give up.....

That said....

Dread, why are you surprised?

This is, after all, the same woman who said:

Quote:
"Why should we hear about body bags and deaths," Barbara Bush said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on March 18, 2003. "Oh, I mean, it's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"
But I have no doubt we will get a cohort of people here defending her and accusing the rest of us of politicizing and on and on and on.

She's just an overprivileged cow.

Not to defend her, but they are a privileged family, it is genuinely difficult for people who have always known privilege to understand life on the other side of the fence. Silly comments, but she's not a political figure in her own right.

What the fuck was she thinking?
I typed out something but deleted it for fear of being completely misinterpreted. I wonder if she somehow meant that if this were some upper class folk, they'd not have the survival and coping skills that people who struggle in every day life might have? These people by absolutely no means deserve it and it is not to be likened to their previous lifestyles. It's plain and simply a tragedy. The entire world is feeling incredibly sympathetic to you all. It doesn't matter what class someone is, it doesn't make a difference, but was Mrs Bush making a badly worded comment perhaps on how the ultra rich cant even change a flat tyre without ringing your NRMA equivilant? In other words, are those who live in the South that were affected, good and strong people who will find a way to emerge from this as stong as ever?

Maybe I'm in denial that someone could insult a whole region who has just suffered more than most of us will ever understand.

Have any of you seen this?

Subject: Vacation is Over... an open letter from Michael Moore to George W. Bush


Friday, September 2nd, 2005

Dear Mr. Bush:

Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.

Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?

Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!

I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?

And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.

There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.

No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!

You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.

Yours,

Michael Moore

P.S. That annoying mother, Cindy Sheehan, is no longer at your ranch. She and dozens of other relatives of the Iraqi War dead are now driving across the country, stopping in many cities along the way. Maybe you can catch up with them before they get to DC on September 21st.

Michael Moore is an ass.

Barbara Bush is a piece of shit.

George Bush was created by one of them, and in turn (effectively) created the other.
