Bush Derangement Syndrome Hits CA

Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi is an embarrassment to the state...he went on Chris Matthews' show last night to sneer that President Bush's planned Thursday visit will be a distraction.

He said, "I got some doubt about the value of President Bush coming out here... President Bush comes out, we'll be polite. But frankly, that's not the solution. How about sending our National Guard back from Iraq?"

Of course, if the President didn't come, you know Garamendi would be on TV sneering that the President doesn't care about California.

Senator Barbara Boxer has also tried to blame fire destruction on the National Guard being in Iraq, which is an absurdity. The Governor has already pulled members of the National Guard off the border in order to carry out duties such as maintaining order at Qualcomm Stadium. Guardsmen are not trained to fight the wildfires our state is currently dealing with.

What are the Democrats going to do with themselves when they don't have President Bush to pointlessly kick around anymore? (They'll find another target, I'm sure...)

Then there's Jon Klein of CNN, who blithely planned TV promotions around the tragic losses and worries suffered by many of my fellow Californians. In a memo acquired by Matt Drudge, Klein was quoted speaking of the fires: "We should be able to use it to push to the Planet in Peril special tomorrow night."

As for Harry Reid blaming the wildfires on global warming, don't get me started...these wildfires have been going on with regularity for decades or more.

You've just got to love politicians and media types who are happy to use other people's problems to sell TV ads, hype global warming fearmongering, or advocate against the Iraq war.

What a miserable lot.
