Talking “‘”We need to get ahead of the curve before we actually lose a city, which I think could happen in the next decade,’ said Gingrich, a Republican who helped engineer the GOP’s takeover of Congress in 1994.” like losing a city to terrorism should be some unthinkable frightening event that causes us all to just hand over our Constitutional rights in fear.
Is it me or do you sometimes feel like there is no shame among some people?
I mean, here’s one of the faces of the Republican party talking about how horrible it would be to lose a city, when the Republicans presided over us losing a city and they all sat around and hemmed and hawed over who should ultimately take the blame.
I mean, what’s the threat? We already lost a city. It already sucked so hard most of us about couldn’t stand it. And the Republican administration knew the storm was coming, knew the waters were in the streets. And they had the power right then to do something about it and instead played “Who can we screw over with this?”
And Newt Gingrich wants me to feel like I have to give the Feds more power to stop the destruction of a city?
They could have done some shit at any point along the way to ease suffering in New Orleans and instead chose not to in order to score political points. So, what makes me think that if a city were on the verge of being destroyed some other way, they’d be any more willing to act?
Do they seriously not get that when it comes to talking about the destruction of a city, that we NOW HAVE A POINT OF REFERENCE, and using that point of reference, the Feds come out looking like the biggest bunch of evil jackasses to ever roam our countryside?
You’d think there wouldn’t be a Republican alive who wanted to inadvertently remind folks of what happens when a city is threatened when Republicans have their way.
