DWS says GOP put ‘winning’ over Isaac victims, Obama finishes up three-state campaign swing

posted at 7:41 pm on August 30, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

Of course, President Obama was tenderly caring full-time about those in Hurricane Isaac’s path as he campaigned on a college campus in Ames, Iowa, dropped by his campaign office after a speech in Charlottesville, Va. to meet staffers, and told college students in Fort Collins, CO that Republicans “hope you stay home.”

It was precisely because he cares more deeply about disasters in the Gulf than any other president in history that he broke the long-standing tradition of not campaigning during his opponent’s convention to do a three-state campaign swing hundreds of miles from the scene of intense flooding in Louisiana. Or something.

Take it away, life-like talking points robot:

“They could have taken things down a notch,” Wasserman Schultz said at a Democratic press conference rebutting the Republican convention. “I think it probably was an example of their continued focus on winning at all costs.”

While she said she agreed with the RNC’s decision to scrub the convention’s first day because of safety concerns, “parties and the special interest-funded bashes” still were held “in spite of the fact that our state was getting hit and Tampa was still in the path of the storm.”

“I give them credit for canceling the first day,” she said. “The way they handled it going forward while the rest of the region is getting battered … you know, probably a challenging situation for them. There are other ways they could have handled it other than the path they chose.”

So, she says they could have “taken it down a notch,” which they already had by lopping off a day, and proceeds to “give them credit for canceling the first day.” That’s one more event than the president canceled, it seems. Her beef is that the convention’s surrounding parties and concerts— often thrown by trade associations, lobbyists, advocacy groups, and state parties— went on unabated on that first night, when “Tampa was still in the path of the storm.”

That would be Monday, which was so uneventful in Tampa as to prompt CNN to ask, Did the RNC jump the gun on delaying the convention?

GOP convention officials went to great lengths Sunday to cram a four-day event into three days after it canceled the gathering’s Monday calendar, citing severe weather conditions from Tropical Storm Isaac.

But did they jump the gun when they first decided Saturday to delay the start of the convention?

Those experiencing the weather in Tampa may be saying “yes.”

By midday Monday, it appeared Isaac was mostly bypassing Florida’s west coast, including the convention site. The storm should strengthen into a hurricane in the next day or two, but it’s expected now to strike further west, anywhere between the Florida Panhandle and Louisiana.

But surely Wasserman Schultz took her warroom down a notch this week out of respect for those in the path of the storm. Nah.

All that “shiny packaging” at the RNC isn’t going to smear itself! Priorities.

GarandFan on August 30, 2012 at 8:06 PM

I’ve said it before…

Debbie Wasserman Schultz- a face as lovely as Grandpa’s old baseball mitt, a voice as mellifluous as a a toilet plunger in action, and tresses that bring to mind a crotchful of yeti pubes.

Moreover, she employs all the logic of a Dan Brown novel, exudes the tender human warmth of an alligator, and demonstrates all the ethics and honor one could expect to witness in the negotiations betwixt a gaggle of used-car salesmen conventioneers and a Vegas escort service.

but I must add her willingness to lie for pay puts her squarely in paid-hourly pool of employees in the escort service that is the cadre of Democratic politicians today.

“They could have taken things down a notch,” Wasserman Schultz said at a Democratic press conference rebutting the Republican convention. “I think it probably was an example of their continued focus on winning at all costs.”

Ahem,

DWS is forgetting that more people have died in Chicago the last week than in Hurricane Isaac.

So when nature kills people the GOP should cancel, but when 0bama’s erstwhile fellow citizens are murdered by welfare thugs, the Dems are allowed to ignore it?

Following her logic, the Dems should cancel their convention if anyone dies in Chicago between now and then.

What a hypocrite.

I think you’re mixing a couple of things up. The feds need that request to throw non-National Guard personnel into the state (Posse Comitatus). The problem with Katrina was that Governor Blanco was so insecure and getting such bad advice she didn’t want to turn over control to the feds.

Happy Nomad on August 30, 2012 at 8:30 PM

Yeah, I thought about that. Here’s one scenario:

The story said that they had several people there to help move the vehicle, so obviously it wasn’t running, or was stuck somehow. Either the people were there to help fix it or to help move it. They were unable to move the vehicle, and there was a big branch overhanging it that they were worried about. Or, the guy saw a big branch overhanging a house. Either way, I think he climbed the tree to saw off the end of a big branch to take the weight off it, to make it less likely to fall.

Other than that, the only thing I can say is that he got cornered by a pack of gators or ate a packet of bath salts….

Heh, I’ve always called them the dime store Long family.

Don’t you worry about Nagin, he’s been ordered to go in front of a grand jury. Jim Letten has his sights on him.

For those who don’t know, Jim Letten is an awesome US Attorney in SE Louisiana. Since his appointment by Pres. Bush, he’s put a lot of corrupt local politicians behind bars from both parties.

You probably win more points having an obnoxious woman as party chair getting the base all excited than a Reince Priebus, whatever that is.
