Barack Obama: Accelerating The Decline of New Orleans

...and it's not even because it will help him politically. It's because his administration is afraid that it might help a Republican peripherally...

Calculated, callus, and conniving, they are - using poor & minority Americans as bent-over human stepping stools to further their own power. That's the Obama administration - and the Democratic party - for you.

So here's the story: Harry Shearer (better known as the voice of Mr. Burns, and as Spinal Tap's famed bass player, Derek Smalls) is promoting his upcoming documentary, The Big Uneasy, about Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. He was recently interviewed by the Washington Post, where he spoke of some of the issues he faced in trying to get help for the flood-ravaged city from the federal government:

Last year he was complaining publicly about the Obama administration’s lack of response to whistleblower allegations and to the Army Corps’s decision to opt for a technically inferior levee reconstruction plan (detailed in the film).

“I will tell you flat-out—without using the man’s name—that somebody who’s arguably quite knowledgeable about Washington said to me, ‘[David] Axelrod and [Rahm] Emanuel don’t want to do anything to help New Orleans,’ ” he says gravely, his voice lowering, about Obama’s senior adviser and former chief of staff. “ ‘That just makes [Louisiana Gov.] Bobby Jindal look good.’ ... You can’t get more Nixonian than that.

The Democrats: Destroying the city of New Orleans to save themselves. Starring Barack Obama as President "Tricky Dick" Nixon. Or perhaps as C. Montgomery Burns...couldn't you just hear Obama channelling him after the November 2010 "shellacking"?:

"It's ironic, that this anonymous clan of slack-jawed troglodytes has cost me the election, and yet if I were to have them killed, I would be the one to go to jail! That's democracy for you."

And we're supposed to be the small-mined hateful racists. Sheesh....
