MoveOn.org: Anything But

Stuck in a perpetual time warp, MoveOn.org is the latest group of leftwing harpies to officially blame President Bush for Katrina's aftermath:

Tom Matzzie, Washington director of MoveOn.org Political Action, also focused his criticism on the Bush administration, calling the federal response to Hurricane Katrina "a national disgrace."

Hmm, I think I have another candidate for that position.

Mattzie also blasted President Bush for comments suggesting that state and local officials share in the responsibility of preparing for and responding to natural disasters.

"He and his team don't want an effective government that can protect people who work hard and pay taxes," Matzzie continued. "Instead, they want to give huge tax breaks to wealthy Americans. The result is that there is no effort left, or there is no ability left for the government to respond to the needs of its citizens, especially in times of crisis."

Unless Mattzie is proposing that all of our laws be rewritten, it's clear that local and state governments are supposed to be first in line when it comes to disaster preparation and response. Governor Kathleen Blanco and Mayor Nagin dropped the ball, and now the feds are scrambling to fix the problem. If Mattzie really thinks this is the federal government's province, he should be lobbying Congress to enact such legislation, not grandstanding in front of the White House and sucking up to the all-to-eager-to-bash-Bush press.
