Just stay out of the way and let us get the job done

The president is expected to visit hurricane sites later this week

Word has it that Bush will visit the disaster sites on the Gulf Coast, including Louisiana, Missisippi and Alabama. I have one word for this.


We have enough trouble getting capable help into these regions without POTUS poking his ignorant nose into things. We need all available able bodies helping with recovery. If dubya is involved, there'll be hundreds of his entourage in the way with no other goal than to protect the prevaricator-in-chief or score political points with photo ops and sound bites, and those who can actually help will be hamstrung by the Secret Service because of National Security.

We've got more important things to do than babysit his pampered butt - like rescuing the people who have been waiting for us to haul them to safety and explain to them how we had money to build up the levees, but this clown who wants to come in for a photo op took the money away to pay for his war in Iraq.

It's a good thing these were red states, otherwise the shrub would've had to come up with justification for withdrawing funds from protecting them from this disaster. Being in the Bible Belt means never having to say you're sorry, right?

Think again, shrubya. You've played the good ol' boy card before, but this time your base voters got screwed, and your flag waving won't buy you their good will anymore.
