Phoenix_22[color=darkred]Stop rambling, you don't know what you are talking about.[/color]

What didn't make sense to you? I can repeat it if you have a learning disability. :D The New Orleans mayor and Louisiana governor dropped the ball. Okay, Bush is responsible too, but it isn't his state.

USMA2010That is not what I said. Politicians represent the people. Name one.[/QUOTE]I don't know of one, but i don't keep tabs on politicians. If they are supposed to represent the people, then they aren't representing all different kinds of liberals. [QUOTE=amoreelitesoldier] What didn't make sense to you? I can repeat it if you have a learning disability. :) The New Orleans mayor and Louisiana governor dropped the ball. Okay, Bush is responsible too, but it isn't his state.

Here:

Haven't you realized that everything is President Bush's fault?

Nope, i don't see how Bush is responsible for everything.

If you trip and fall, it's Bush's fault;

Really? Because i'm sure that it isn't.

if you drown, it's Bush's fault;

What?

if your computer crashes due to a hardware failure, I'm sure it had something to do with the hard drive being created in a cheap factory in China, because Bush is outsourcing all of our jobs.

No, the blame would be on Microsoft or whoever made it, because they are the ones who are outsourcing jobs.

If someone shoots you, I'm sure it can somehow be blamed on Bush because he isn't a gun control-advocating President.

i can kind of agree on this one, otherwise all your other points aren't true.

For God's sake. It doesn't matter whose fault it is. Why is it when ever there's a immense tragedy that we all stand around pointing fingers? screw that, let's fix it first then argue about who screwed up more.

It matters who's fault it is because the people of the Gulf Coast Region shouldn't have had to wait days to get help, a plan should have been in place, and due to someone's incompetency, hundreds or thousands may have died. I donated $30 personally, my mom also donated $100 or so. There isn't anything else i can really do, i'm not going to sit around and cry at the T.V. because if you spend your life dwelling on things, it won't help. Also, we're discussing it, its a topic in the news, and its perfectly fine to discuss it.

I just think that placing the blame is stupid. I know you're not going to sit and cry at the tv, I understand that. I just think that we're trivializing deaths. Unfortunately because I didn't loose people close to me because of it, the deaths are only a statistic to us.

Yeah, we should be focusing on saving as many people as we can, rather then pointing fingers. Yes, they were unprepared, and yes, it caused more problems, but that's already happened, it's in the past. All we can deal with now is the present, the reality of the situation.

[color=black]Honestly, I've never been more ashamed to call myself a democrat then in the past few days. Everyone's blaming Bush, when what they should be doing is helping the victims. Right now, the victims need help - not mindless political yappering and finger pointing. What disgusts me even more, is that the jerkoffs in the DNC are capitalizing on it, joining in on the protests and adding fuel to the fire they should be trying to prevent. They have to politicize everything, there's people dying and they're more concerned about the 2008 election or whatever the hell they're losing sleep at night over. We should be coming together as a nation, but no – it’s more of this pointless, back and forth blame game that just diverts attention from the people who need it most right now. The victims. Whether or not Bush is to blame is irrelevant to me at this point – any political party that would capitalize on the suffering of other’s is not one I want to associate myself with. Fuck them. From this day forward, I will forever be a Libertarian. I should have switched years ago, f’in unbelievable – I've been reading their platform/took their political test and I agree with them on everything. [/color]

[color=black]Also, the blame is on everyone, even the people of [/color][color=black]New Orleans[/color][color=black] themselves. They should have paid more attention to the warnings - instead of assuming it wouldn't be any worse than Camille (sp?) and on that same level, the media should have made the difference more apparent. What's more, the Mayor should have used the cities school busses or DOT city busses to organize an effective evacuation - before the levees broke and submerged the fleet in water. He would have known the poverty stricken area would not have effective transportation. Plus, although it is understandable – crying on national TV will do little to encourage the people counting on him. Bush is a scapegoat, get over it. Even congress is to blame, but cutting the funding of the very project (SELA, look it up) they created. Pinning the entire thing on Bush is ridiculous, and it reveals the liberal democrats as the spineless weasels they are. [/color]

[color=black]What pisses me off even more is how all the “elitists” that think the rest of the country is inferior, all republicans are hillbillies, and George Bush is the anti-Christ – have even turned this into a racial thing. Jesus Christ, just STFU already! [/color]

Yes, we do need to find who/what is responsible but with people still dying and thousands homeless and hundreds still misiing. We have all the time in the world to point fingers, starting only days after while this is still happening is sad. Most polticans don't care about people, they only want to better themselves while screwing the people they represent.

In this state "we" ("they" for me) should just focus on helping those poor victems down there so casaulties won't rise further then needed. However it is important to know who failed, you have pumped lots and lots of money in security and when it comes down to it you still fail to respond adrquatly and fast, one or more people dropped the ball. I don't know who it is (it looks like the mayor did everything within his power) but it is important they find out who failed so that certain things can get looked after and changed. Obviously something went wrong, it can be human ignorance, a bad organisation or something else but it needs to be located and fixed so whenever something happens to the USA again the response is effective, adequate and fast. We don't need to find a victem to point at and blame, we need to fix an error so this will not happen again!

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Although I'm not a Democrat (where most of the finger pointing seems to be coming from), I'm an American and I'm ashamed that these people are my leaders, and elected ones at that. Don't they realize that they are losing more and more future votes (such as yourself) by constantly taking the Michael Moore extremist tactics of blame Bush for everything. They are only making themselves look ridiculous. The voting public is much more informed and smarter than they realize.
