Moonbats Want President To Die

In an attempt to present himself as a more serious commentator, Bogus Doug has sworn off using the term "Moonbat". (Less serious commentators have taken issue with Doug's decision.) I have used the expression sparingly on this blog, using it only in extreme circumstances.

This is one of those times.

Last night I heard a talk show host criticizing President Bush's speech from yesterday. I had not heard the speech, so I read the transcript at the first opportunity. It looked good enough to me. The President basically gave details of post-Katrina rescue and reparation efforts and saved some brief rhetoric for the end. This morning I did a Technorati search for BUSH SPEECH and was greeted with some lovely anti-Bush feedback, most of it critical of the plane ride over the devastated areas across the South. "He should be down there, on the ground!" cried the loony left chorus. "Any other President would be there meeting with the survivors!" And what good would that do?

Very little; in fact, it might hinder relief efforts. During the Bush 41 administration, there was (if I remember correctly) a devastating earthquake somewhere in southeast Asia. Marilyn Quayle, wife of the then-Vice-President, visited the affected area. Her trip was well-publicized. She was seen all around the world as a concerned authority figure of sorts. Those on the ground handling the relief effort took a dim view of her presence. The media entourage, security, and those attendant on Mrs. Quayle hindered the work of those who were trying to provide aid to the survivors. One of the people in charge, I recall, was disgusted that a politician's wife would cause more harm than good by using the tragedy as a big photo op.

That, of course, is what the barking moonbats want Bush 43 to do in New Orleans. He does a lot more good by surveying the damage from above than by dropping down and getting in everyone's way. And supposing he did? They would condemn his presence as an insidious photo op.

Not to mention the fact that it is still a very dangerous place to be. The people working at the scene are better-equipped for handling this kind of emergency than some politician with little or no hands-on experience in this kind of operation. There is only one thing that I can conclude from the Moonbat rantings about Bush over New Orleans: They want him to die there.

HILLARY SAYS: Curses! You've figured out our plan! We were hoping to convince him that it would be a good idea to go down to the flood waters so that he would fall into the Gulf of Mexico and drown in the oil. "No Bush for Oil", get it? Now you've ruined it and we'll have to think of some other way to get rid of him.

There is only one word for these critters: MOONBATS. Eat 'em all, Dementee. Eat 'em all.
