The Unreality-Based Party


A few days ago Fox News Channel's Major Garrett got confirmation from the head of the Red cross --on camera-- of the Louisiana State Department of Homeland Security's blocking of the delivery of relief supplies to the Superdome and the Convention Center. This news is also on the Red Cross web site. In addition, Garrett received confirmation from senior Salvation Army officials in Washington, D.C. that the Salvation Army's efforts at supplying the evacuees with such things as hot meals were also repeatedly blocked.

It goes with out saying, the rest of the Main Stream Media won't touch this story at all. They don't have to take the word of Fox News. Maybe they are too cheap to phone the Red Cross and Salvation Army? Or no one told them they could do that?

In a recent cartoon, a Republican asked a Democrat if things would have been better if Democrats were in charge. When the Democrat said "Yes," The Republican simply replied, "They were."

Actually, even when the incompetence of the local leaders, all Democrats, is clearly demonstrated -- an incompetence that cost lives -- a bunch of them don't seem to get it. They think it was perfectly OK for the governor of Louisiana to say that she had not made the proper requests for assistance because no one told her to. The question then is, if you don't know your job, does that automatically make it the President's fault? That is what the Democrats are saying. And acting like they believe it!

As a former Base Disaster Preparedness Officer, 81st Tactical Fighter Wing, RAF Bentwaters & Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK 1970-1975, I find it hard to believe that even Democrats don't know the initial responsibilities for impending disasters are local, and that first responders to disasters are under local guidance and command.

Democrats do not have a "reality" based party.
