“I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees. They did anticipate a serious storm. But these levees got breached. And as a result, much of New Orleans is flooded. And now we are having to deal with it and will.” – President George W. Bush on Good Morning America, Thursday Sep 1, three days after Katrina made landfall

Like just about anyone who follows politics and doesn’t get their news from a propaganda network, I realize that I shouldn’t put anything past this current administration. They’ve lied so many times in the past and I have a feeling that they’re just going to keep on pushing the lies until finally people wake up and realize that they’ve had enough.

The beautiful thing about the quote above and the linked video is that yet once again the president is completely caught in his lie. Unless he wants to argue that the video is edited, there is no getting out of this one and I for one hope that it plays (alongside his quote) on every single major news outlet for the next couple days.

It’s just one example, of course, and there are some people who still say that he’s doing the best he can and he’s a good Christian man so we should stand behind him because he’s our president that was elected by the majority of people, but this is a guy who on the above video heard dire warnings from a whole room of people (including the much-maligned Mike Brown) and then seemingly ignored them and went on literally three days of campaign stops (including this gem).

So yeah, I took a break from posting about politics on here, but this is something I read and think about too much to not write about. I want the Dems to collectively grow a backbone, I want GW’s approval ratings at sub 20%, and I want people to finally see what a complete debacle this administration has been. If I can help in that even a little bit, I’ll be happy man.
