Ain't karma a bitch katrina and a failed economy made bush look a fool.

One southern city and 7.8 persent unemployment and bush had to go into hiding.

It took days well over a week to restore some kind of order and everyone was howling for his blood.

And today there are dozens of cities along the east coast destroyed with no food water or heat no order and 7.9 persent unemploymentand six more trillion in the red.

And they have been like that for days with little or no help from the goverment.

So that the man that made a carear out of blaming bush now faces the exactly same only larger challenges.

Yes what goes around comes around and karma has her teeth firmly planted in his ass but he's not in hiding he's out there bold as brass campaining and still blaming bush.

The irony in all this so far has excaped the notice of all those folks that where screaming for George bushes head on a platter or is it something much worse hypocrites.

Oh buy the way I thought bush was a moron so that might give you some idia how I feel about our curent president.
