Your passion for your candidate is only matched by the serious lack of facts that you present in your argument.<quoted text>
You know McCain has bucked his party AND Bush!! The American people can see through the blame transfer you guys are trying to link McCain to now. If not, Obama would be ahead by a landslide. As for Katrina, explain to me this the reports, with an impending TS/Hurricane, WHY the state is still making the SAME mistakes in rebuilding the levees?!! Corruption at the state level! How much money was raised and doanted to the state to help them? Why they cannot get it together some years later is appaling. If Obama is elected will we see more blame at the CIC level? It is convenient for Libs to blame somebody, some Americans have forgotten about personal responsibility and all you guys do is tick off a lot of other people with this blame thing. McCain IS NOT another Bush. Some would hardly call him a Republican and he sure as heck is no Conservative, so your argument is baseless and just more rhetoric from the "media".
McCain in 2000 bucked Bush and Company but since then he has reversed almost of his positions against Bush in order to appeal to the Bush supporters, so he can get elected. He currently votes with Bush about 90% of the time. You call that bucking Bush??? I guess for a Republican l anything less than 100% approval of another Republican is traitorous non-support.
Second, the levees were not built or re-built by the city of New Orleans or the State of Louisiana; they were built both times by the Army Corps of Engineers, who has responsibility across the US to build levees. The last time I heard, the US Army Corps of Engineers is under the control of the US Federal Government of which George Bush is the leader. I believe he is a Republican. Moreover, a few days after Katrina Bush promised $200 billion federal dollars to rebuild New Orleans, but three years later only about half of that amount has been delivered to the states hit by Katrina, and most of that went to, guess where, Mississippi, which was NOT as seriously hit as New Orleans was, but where Bush's favorite senator, Republican Trent Lott lost his home. So what are the people of New Orleans supposed to do when their President lies to them to make himself look good but "delivers the goods" to where there is less need because you got to take care of your Republican supporters. Oh, yeah, I remember, if you're a Republican, you blame the victims-the impoverished, elderly, and frail residents of New Orleans who had no way out.
You don't have to believe me. All of this was widely reported in the national newspapers over the last three years, and just yesterday a new report in the Advertiser showed that most of those who died in New Orleans were elderly and black and stated that the numbers who died were probably UNDERestimated.
Go ahead and believe what you want, but the facts don't back you up.
