Bush Done In By His Record

TPM highlights a report by Vanity Fair that Bush aides believe Katrina was the nail in the coffin of Bush's ability to connect to the American public. No kidding. After all, Katrina was truly the topping on the cake of a year where Bush proved for once and all he didn't give a damn about real people.

It was early 2005 when Bush showed that he was ready to corrupt the law for the Christian right by intervening in the Terry Schiavo case.

Then he spent the month of August vacationing in Crawford while American soldiers continued to die in Iraq and Cindy Sheehan camped outside asking Bush to explain why they had to die in his war. When Katrina was barreling onto land, he listened to the reports about it, and then went gallivanting around the country while New Orleans was drowning. Every time some one brags about how George Bush kept America safe, one only need to remind them that his carelessness about governing led to many people dying. He didn't care at all.

Katrina capped the Bush's year of arrogance and disdain for the American people as he decided that he would use his vaulted power doing what he wanted, not what we needed. No wonder he never came back from that incident.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.
