Hurricane Katrina: 4th time a charm?

I have started to write this post the last couple of days and I immediately get stopped. Why? Because this is not a political issue. It is a national issue. An American issue. The relief effort has been slow and there are many, many reasons for that. It sucks there is looting. It sucks they don't have enough housing, supplies and medical care. People are afraid to go down and help. It sucks they don't have power. But it more than sucks that the media, every liberal blogger and Michael Moore have to politicize this.


It is not Bush's fault the hurricane happened.
It is not his fault that the poor apparently appear to be most affected, even though the storm hit everyone.
It is not God's will because we attacked Iraq.
It is not because Bush has not signed America to the Kyoto Treaty.
It is not because of his vacation.
It is not possible for Bush to fly into the eye of a hurricane and stop it.

Hurricanes have occurred naturally for eons. Get with it people. It happened before, it happened now, it will happen again. We're just not as prepared as we think we are.
