The Left's Predictable Bush-Bashing Over Katrina

Tuesday, 06 September 2005 12:00 AM

Faced with the almost certain elevation of Judge John Roberts to the chief justiceship of the United States and seemingly powerless to prevent it, the left sees the handwriting on the wall.

Confronted now with a second vacancy on the court and the prospect of the nomination of another conservative imbued with the determination to undo the damage the Supreme Court has done to the Constitution, the National Socialist Democrat Abortion party is in panic mode.

The five-to-four liberal balance is about to be reversed, and along with it a restoration of the Court's traditional devotion to viewing the Constitution as the founders of this republic saw it – as a document that means exactly what it says and not what a bunch of wayward justices want it to say.

For the Marxist-dominated left, this is a disaster of enormous magnitude. They can clearly see the undoing of the great mischief they have inflicted on the American people, on our system of justice and our tradition of self-government, all of which they have replaced with judicial tyranny. What they could not achieve at the polls they successfully conspired to achieve with the connivance of left-wing judicial activists, fittingly clad in black robes

What we are seeing now with the unrestrained and venomous invective being hurled at George Bush from the left and their media allies is a perfect example of the cornered-rat syndrome. With their beady little red eyes shining out of the darkness and their teeth bared, leftists labor under the mistaken impression that they are showing the American people an example of their courageous will to fight against all odds.

Instead, what the American people are seeing is nothing but a pack of snarling rats backed into a corner and burning with frustration.

They have nothing left to peddle. They spew their invective at the president for his conduct of the war in Iraq, yet aside from the demented Deaniacs' demand for immediate withdrawal they have nothing to offer to replace the Bush policies. And so they resort to slander and deception, hoping the American people will join their lynch mob.

When the public fails to rally around them, they simply became more shrill in their attacks on the president, or rely on the ludicrous antics of the Cindy Sheehans of the anti-war movement.

When the public shows its ability to recognize a con game and refuses to buy the lie that the president, and not the immutable law of supply and demand, is responsible for the hike in gas prices, they simply increase the vehemence of their rhetoric, hoping the public will accept the twisted logic that if gas prices are high and George Bush is president, then it is George Bush's fault that gas prices are going through the roof.

When ABC and the Washington Post, no friends of George Bush or the Republican Party, release a poll that shows that by a 55-to-44 margin the public in its wisdom refuses to place the blame for the delay on the response to Katrina's devastation of New Orleans on George Bush, they turn a blind eye on the poll results and just raise the volume of their assaults on the president.

Two-thirds (that's 66 percent) of those responding to the poll say the federal government should have been better prepared to deal with a storm this size, but fully three-quarters (that's 75 percent) say state and local governments in the affected areas likewise were insufficiently prepared.

Federal government adequately prepared? 31% Yes; 67% No

State/local government adequately prepared? 24% Yes; 75% No

Blame Bush? 44% Yes; 55% No

Either the Marxists who dominate the American left and its captive Democrat Party do not understand that none of their fevered attacks on the president on this issue are hitting home, or they are so blinded by their hatred of George Bush they cannot accept the fact that their inflamed rhetoric is not influencing the majority of the American people.

These people should listen to another president they hated, Richard M. Nixon, who once said, "Those who hate you don't win unless you hate them; and then you destroy yourself."

They may not realize it, but they are well into self-destruction.

Good riddance.

P.S. If you want to understand exactly where the real blame lies for the delayed response to Katrina, read Chris Ruddy's extraordinary analysis,

He nailed it dead on.
