It’s all Bush’s fault that Katrina even hit, needless to say. I can’t help but to think that Blanco and Nagin and Oprah and everyone else would be outraged that the Bush administration forced people out of their homes like a DICTATOR if he pursued a going-over-Blanco’s head strategy. Bushitler! He’d still be KKKKarl–their storm troopers moving people against their will and forcing them into concentration camps. Which, of course, is not a reason not to do it–because the Left would go bonkers, that’s a permanent state. But it’s ridiculous to think that that really would have been the Congressional Black Caucus’s preferred solution. They had not preferred solution. Other than having impeached Bush months ago so they storm would have never hit.
