Can't impeach for negligent homicide? Bust Roberts; Block Rehnquist replacement

"White House Shifts Blame" says the WaPost headline over a story that details Bush's efforts to strip the Louisiana governor and New Orleans mayor of authority and absolve himself, FEMA, or any of his loyal lackies of any responsibility.

Thousands dead. Bush fakes photo op; food, construction props removed when cameras leave. Northcomm says it waited days on Bush order to enter New Orleans. Quarter million refugees. Iraq war rages. Now Rehnquist has died. Roberts nomination up. Estate tax repeal up. We must bury this monster in defeat at every turn.

I know Democratic pollsters are urging caution on their clients. I've been there before, and can tell you what they're saying without seeing the research. "Americans are turning on Bush, but they don't want to hear politicians politicizing his Katrina disaster." Bullshit.

Here's how the NYTimes describes the Democratic strategy:

The silence of many prominent Democrats reflects their conclusion that the president is on treacherous political ground and that attacking him would permit the White House to dismiss the criticism as partisan politics-as-usual, a senior Democratic aide said.

Bullshit.

The man is not qualified to be president. Want a justifiable excuse to bust Roberts? Just say, "Bush appointed him." Filibuster the replacement for Rehnquist. Hell, filibuster everything, start impeachment proceedings, investigate the New Orleans disaster, tie up the White House in criminal investigations, civil depositions, Congressional hearings. March on the White House and stay there. Beat every Republican who votes with him or defends him publicly.

What has given Bush the confidence to let thousands die, fake recovery efforts for the cameras, delay real assistance, blame others for the delay, continue to let (poor) Americans die in Iraq, continue to cut taxes for the very, very rich, destroy public education and health care, desimate the environment?

Not votes. He had to steal two elections. It's our timidity. Thanks in large part to sites like Kos, to online activist organizations, to the zealotry of a few stalwarts, we are growing bolder. Thank god for that.

But failing to take Bush down, or at least his entire agenda, would be like watching a mugging or a murder without intervening or calling the cops.

Bush's character is now decided.

It's our character that's in question.

We need Congress to DO SOMETHING for those poor folks suffering in the Gulf Coast>>> TELL Cheney we don't care how paranoid or secretive he is >>> TAKE HELP FROM EVERYONE WHO HAS OFFERED IT> FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO HIDE FROM MAYOR DALEY OF CHICAGO? I DON'T CARE IF HE IS CASTRO, TAKE CUBA'S HELP AND EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD WHO HAS OFFERED. YOU STUPID ASS CHENEY, WE DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR SECRET SHIT ANYMORE>>> TAKE ALL THE HELP AND TELL BUSH TO DO SOMETHING FOR THOSE PEOPLE DOWN THERE IN THE GULF >>>NOW

You are a bunch of fucking morons!!! We have yet to turn down an offer from anyone. You fucking pussies are so eager to hate President Bush that you will stoop to any level. An event unlike any other in our nations history has occured and you expect for the response to be that quick?!?! It takes time! It would take just as long if we were not in Iraq! Just what the hell would do you suggest he do? What do you expect Congress to do? Do you even realize which branch of the government they belong to? LEGISLATIVE!!!! They have approved the initial funding needed by FEMA. You damn people will look for any excuse to blame Republicans! The same would have happened no matter which party is in power. Shut the fuck up already!

WE ARE BLAMING BUSHCO AND THE NEOCONS>>> STOP DEFENDING THE MURDERING LIARS AND GROW UP AND START CARING ABOUT YOUR FELLOWMAN

This is the right you have to free speech, hoosier. Be happy that we still have a government that lets you express your self as you do. That may all change soon and that is what we are trying to save. Your rights!

My husband was turned down. FEMA said they weren't taking volunteers. He's a master carpenter, has generators, chain saws, all sorts of tools and equipment, AND is licensed by the state of Louisiana.

South Carolina's governor was turned down. Canada was turned down. The Red Cross has not been allowed to help.

Nazi. You're a NAZI.

Dear History Buff

Hey Hoosier205, your game is up. The post above about the quality of your natural habitat has exposed you for what you are. The lack of information that you posts reveal is a testimony to what that post potrays.
Do you still believe the Earth is flat?
Neanderthal!

over 400,000 Americans died during WWII....compared to Iraq....put it in perspective! It's the fucking military...they voluteered...they didn't volunteer to play powder puff football!!!

WORSHIP GOD>>> NOT BUSHITLER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!

Stop ignorance>>>> READ>>>

(GOOD GRIEF, FORREST GUMP HAS MORE SENSE THAN THESE IGNORAMUSES)

BUSHCO ARE EVIL AND VILE AND THEY DON'T GIVE A DAMN WHO THEY MURDER OR WHO THEY NEGLECT >>> WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE>>> HOW MANY HAVE TO DIE BEFORE YOU "GET IT"??????????????????????????

THE PEOPLE IN LOUISIANA AND MISSISSIPPI NEED YOUR SUPPORT>>> NOT YOUR god BUSHCO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ummmm... If the issue were numbers, then there wouldn't be a debate. (Of course, we're told how many civilians have died, but you would probably say that those civilians chose to live there.) I usually feel sadness for folks who show passion but ignorance. I no longer feel that way. Why don't you try to think a bit? Did those who volunteered for the military agree to wage an unjust war? (The answer, of course, is No.) The question, then, is whether the Iraq war is unjust. Those, who are brave enough to look carefully at the evidence, have tended to think that the war is unjust. Try thinking a bit, or going back to high school.

...Put it in perspective. If you only knew how stupid you appear... And I am sorry to be the one to point this out. Someone should've cared for you long ago and showed you the value of education, of serious and honest thought.

I don't see how wether the military personel volunteered or not has anything to do with the late response to the disaster in the Gulf Coast. While the hurricane was building, the president did nothing, The day it hit, the president did nothing. Why did it take five days to mobilize the National Guard into rescue efforts, why was funding consistently cut on natural disaster preventing efforts for the past decade? War or not, our government is ultimately responsible for any shortcomings.

You brainless imbecile, they did not volunteer to fight in an illegal war that they are fighting now!!!!

Anonymous: Why don't you post your name and adress when you insult my son who is returning for tour # 2 and his friends that died chasing Bush's lies you fucking coward.How many tours have you done in this Noble Cause? To all of the people who are regular contributors to this site and are not insane I apologize to you for my digression in using such language, I know it cheapens my message but I have little tolerance for insults directed at my brave son,who is also against this war but does his duty regardless.

Why do I even bother arguing with such morons?!? It doesn't even matter. The country doesn't care about Cindy Sheehan anymore...they have grown tired of her antics. As for Katrina...no one else could have done any better...not any other President. It doesn't matter if he is at the White House or Crawford...he had the same abilities to act. You don't seem to realize why your thoughts and beliefs are only fund in little out of way places such as this site...you are in the minority. Regardless of polls...most Americans are not left wing nuts like all of you. You are still bitching on this site about the election....from 5 damn years ago! Get over it! You are bitching about there not being WMD's in Iraq...we are there....get over it! We cannot just leave now...the country would be in even more trouble. I have heard comments about the fact that Iraq will now have an Islamic based government and how that is such a bad thing. Guess what....THEY ARE ISLAMIC....so there government will be bases upon that just as ours is based upon our major religon. Just get your heads out of your asses already...

You are clueless what is going on around you >>>OBSERVE

Get your head out of the sand and READ for crying out loud. WE ARE NOT GOING TO GET OVER PEOPLE WHO DIE FOR LIES. What kind of a human being are you to say such vile stuff like "get over it" >>>>

They rigged it because they are the PNAC , not Republicans, they are all in the PNAC and they have been plotting Iraq War BEFORE they rigged the elections, they are hurting everyone including Republicans>>>

WATCH THE DAMN VIDEO>>>

http://www.iwilltryit.com/fixed1.htm

YANK, thats a actual hearing that took place? where? when?
the testimony was damming for the PNAC AND FOR BUSH IF IT WAS AN ACTUAL HEARING!!If this is true,is the fact that this hearing was held, is it known by the right people? i mean, who knows about this hearing?**HUMPHRET**

Didn't you recognize anybody ? This video has been out and about since December so its been awhile (EXCEPT OF COURSE THE MSM), but I saw it the first time about 3 days ago posted on a blog on this website. I just about fell out of my chair!!! The video is on the Bradblog, but this is a much BETTER video quality. I read somewhere on the net about it a few weeks before I saw this, so I knew this hearing did take place>>> I read later some Senator has an ongoing investigation . Not very publicized , huh? Yep , I just about passed out when I saw it too !!!!!!!
Omigossssssssshhhhhhhh!!!

about FL and Ohio>>> to the Brits. YES, THE BRITS KNOW MORE THAN WE DO ABOUT OUR OWN RIGGED ELECTIONS, unless you saw the Michael Moore movie. The British people must be going nuts watching us post blogs since they know so much more crap about Bushco than we do!!! I know how the Brits feel now, because I wanted that stupid hoosier to shutup so bad with the ignorant babbling. THANK GOD FOR MICHAEL MOORE, or Greg Palast's reports never would've made it to the USA. Now this hearing video was AFTER Fahrenheit 9/11, which is why Michael Moore did not have it in his movie. I have been begging Michael on blogs to make another movie to "OUT" THE PNAC, even if he has to get donations from me and everyone to make another movie to show all over America.

Yank, thanks for e-mailing me. I wanted to reply to yours and Scotts post on the site about the Clinton Curtis testimony last December which video we saw late last week. Do you recall the group that posted a week or so ago about visiting their Congressman in Virginia. They wanted to lobby him to support the Resolution of Inquiry. Remember those people reporting that the Congressman suggested that the resolution was being sponsored by members who "can't get anything passed"? We all know that the Congressional Black Caucus is the moving force behind the resolution, Conyers, Lee et al. It is the Black Caucus that is truly leading the march of the patriots such as yourself, Scott, David Swanson, Cindy Sheehan and so so many more of we who seek truth and the resurrection of our Constitutional democracy. PNAC control of both parties is in the process of being exposed and shattered. It is a fight well worth waging no matter what the cost. What do any of us have left if not our true freedom, not the bullshit version PNAC George cooks up. I'm sure you agree with me that death is a better alternative than "living" under the oppression of Bush and the PNAC's.

Someday soon, i expect, we'll wake up, start our day, in the normal manner as we all do, and suddenly, without warnning, all hell is lible to break loose over this revelation, that i suspect not too many folfs are yet aware of. beeeeeeeeeeeeeep!WE INTURUPT THIS BROADCAST FOR A IMPORTANT NEWS DEVELOPMENT. WE NOW SWITCH TO OUR ON THE SCENE COMENTATOR ______________, REPORTING LIVE FROM THE EAST LAWN OF THE WHITEHOUSE!**HUMPHREY**

Scott, I, like Yank, first saw this video late this past week. I was on this site early one morning at my office when no one else whas around and I literally went balsitic. I was screaming at my monitor. After I composed myself, I quickly e-mailed the link to my girlfriend. She has since spread it on to her contacts.

We should find out who Hoosier 205 really is and the three of us should take him to the woodshed and not beat him but "encourage" him to "enlighten" his sorry ass with the truth. We should pry his eyes open and expose him to this video which should, after appropriate repetitive views, wake his sorry ass and mind from its sheepish sleep.

Clinton Curtis is a remarkable patriot. Just the patriot I have been hoping would come forward to explain how Florida 2000 was pulled off. I'kk never forget that election night when CNN projected Florida for Gore based on exit polls. I clearly remember that right wing bitch, Mary Matalin, saying . . ."now wait a minute here"! The rest is history. Clinton Curtis is asked in the hearings about the conflict between the vote and exit polls. Listen to his response. He basically said THE DIFFERENCES SHOULD BE STATISTICALLY INSIGNIFICANT! This man thought he was producing a program to insure an election could not be stolen from his company's Republican clients. Listen to how he relates how his boss tells him "you don't get it"! This is one brave gentlemen. God Bless you Clinton Curtis. I hope Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald has interviewed him and had him testify before the Grand Jury.

When I try to watch this video, the window comes up but "will not load". Do you know another source for it?

It's Bushco who is pissed off they chose an Islamic theocracy with close ties to Iran . Oh geesh you don't even know our Constitution does not allow a government run religion....go back to elementary school. We are NOT in England where the Anglican Church is the state religion . USA has no state-sanctioned religion , THAT IS WHY WE LEFT KING GEORGE IN 1776, and that is why we want to impeach and put on war crimes trials (FOR MASS MURDER) STUPID GEORGE NOW.

Good question. Why do you if, as you say, "it doesn't even matter"?

Hoosier205; If you consider the delay in sending help to the Gulf acceptable , or Bush's appointment of an idiot like Brown to a position which he is totally incompent and dangerous at I must say that you are totally devoid of any shread of intelligence and you are the idiot. My son's best friend was blown in half in Iraq, Robert held what was left of Cpl. Cabala until he died . That was just before Bush was mugging for the cameras and pretending to look under his desk for WMD while laughing, and you have the sickening gaul to express support for this psychopathic cowardly liar. Go some place else and peddle your insanity.We're trying to save our country with this so called "little out of the way site" and don't have time for any more of your bullshit.Also you should invest in a dictionary before you try to sound informed,your spelling reveals much about your intelligence.

Back home again in Indiana, eh?

If you really, really want to see an idiot, go look in the mirror!

You want to know why an idiot like you has helped fuck up this country, check out the video you can access on this website from Friday September 2, 2005 concerning the testimony of Clinton Curtis. For your information, if you care, he designed the computer program which was employed in Florida in 2000. Carefully listen to his testimony. He had been a lifelong Republican, like your sorry ass. He has obviously had an epiphany and has come forward. Did your beloved right wing corporate media reprt on this rather major source of information. Of course not. It is worse than your sorry ass!

Don't be giving me a load of your Indiana shit about "getting over it", you hear me shithead. You've really got me pissed off now. I dare you to e-mail me at richschaedler@mail2.myexcel.com and please use your real fucking name if you have the balls you right wing piece of shit! I am so fucking sick of Bush and his entire cadre of supporters or whatever the hell you want to call them. Hell has a warm place for all of you!

HEY HOOSIER !!HUMPHREY HERE,,,BITE ME!!!SIGNED,,,**HUMPHREY**

I currently am living in Indiana and I want to testify that this has got to be the most dumbed-down, uneducated, indifferent, mall-crawling bunch of zombies I have ever in my life lived among. I have heard some of the most deplorably ignorant comments from people here about the world and current events. It is appalling and depressing to be here in these times and I will leave the first opportunity I get.
So, to everyone that has read Hoosier205's comment, keep it in perspective. Many (( certainly NOT all )) of the people living in this backward state of Indiana have a mentality stuck in the past and they seem not to care. They are so insulated from the world and anything differnt from them. And they like it that way. There are many "good-hearted" people here, but they don't have "good-minds". The heart and mind have to be connected for wisdom to be activated.
Sorry about my vent about living in Indiana, but it has been rough the last 4 years. I hate the culture here.

For someone with less than a 3rd grade education with a single digit IQ, and a twisted understanding of history and current events, I find your calling the intelligent people on this board idiots and morons to be rather hysterical.

By the way, when are you going to sign up to go to Iraq?

One of the enduring legacies of George Bush's reign will be the cadres of unthinking stooges created by heavy doses of talk radio and TV. These people don't think and don't want to know the truth. They are deeply programmed to support Bush no matter how stupid, inept, or criminal his actions or policies. Needless to say this is something we'd expect to find in the heydey of the old Soviet Union instead of here in the U.S. Needless to say most Americans are not so hopelessly brainwashed and are thankfully begining to see the true nature of the criminal Bush regime. There is now ample grounds to impeach, or imprison Bush and his croonies. We should all be working together to make sure this happens!
