Heckuva Job Brownie Reopens Katrina Scar

The iconic former Bush FEMA Director, Michael “Heckuva job, Brownie” Brown, said on both FOX News and  CNN:

“This is exactly what they want, because now he [President Obama] can pander to the environmentalists and say, ‘I’m going to shut it down because It’s too dangerous,’ while Mexico and China and everybody else drills in the Gulf. We’re going to get shut down.”

Does anybody actually care what Michael ‘Brownie’ Brown thinks?  Of course, Fox News listeners absorbed it all like sponges and their conspiracy theories were satiated for 24 hours like a good dog and its bone.

No doubt Beck and Limbaugh threw some scraps of red meat down to the dogs, too.

Joseph Palermo on the Huffington Post made an interesting observation on this newest Gulf Coast disaster, a point that I was thinking about too. He writes,

“Unlike Katrina when the southern wing of the Republican Party, which at the time included the Bush Administration, could blow off the crisis because the people doing most of the suffering were black – today’s spill in the Gulf is very different. This time around it’s going to hit a lot of those white Redneck cracker barrels who voted for George W. Bush and by extension Heckuva Job Brownie too, (as well as Haley Barbour and Bobby Jindal and the McCain/Palin ticket in 2008).”

Redneck cracker barrels. That’s classic! As he has earned a Doctorate in American History from Cornell University, I suppose he is qualified to identify redneck cracker barrels when he sees them.

Yes, it’s the southern whites this time.  is that why so many GOP talking heads are somehow trying to blame Obama for this BP disaster?  You know, the black president causing problems for the white folks down there?

Palermo goes on:

“This time around a lot of white folks on the Gulf Coast are going to lose their livelihoods because they were stupid enough and racist enough to vote for the “Drill, Baby, Drill” crowd, which is nothing more than a collection of radicals who despise any constraints on the ability of corporations to exploit the land, labor, and resources of this country. The ordinary white folks down South who hate “Big Government” even to the point of opting out of health care reform and the stimulus now want “Big Government” to save their sorry Southern asses from the same corporate elites they helped put in power during the glorious Bush years.”

Stupid enough and racist enough.  That’s simple enough to understand.  I get it.

‘ Nuff said.

  1. Hello Muddy,
    I just heard Bill O’Reilly being interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America say, “Those who are blaming President Obama for reacting too slow to the oil clean up…..what did they expect him to do? Put him in a dive suit with a rake and send him down to clean it up from the ocean floor. BP said they had the situation under control and when it became obvious that BP did not, the government stepped in.”

    I do have to say that when someone like Bill O’Reilly is on a national program presenting a moderate viewpoint and basing their logic on facts….maybe the country is taking a turn back to some sanity. I will admit that I had just woke up but I am sure when I heard Bill O’Reilly take up for President Obama…it was not a dream. What a great way to start a day on a positive note of O’Reilly taking up for and supporting the President. Maybe there is hope with sanity, logic, and truth becoming the norm for the United States.

  2. Hello All,
    In the tradition of this country as being the “Great Melting Pot” from all of our diverse, heterogeneous society, I want to wish all of our citizens who have their ancestor’s origins from Mexico, “Happy Cinco de Mayo mis amigos.”

  3. Now I want to make Mexican food! I have jalepenos started in my little green house and lots of cilantro.

    The utter ineptness of Brownies comments only underscored his utter ineptness as a human being.

  4. Hmmm…perhaps just about now, O’Reilly is groggily coming to on the sidewalk in front of FOX News Studios wondering, “What The Fuck? Geez o Pete my head hurts, I can’t remember anything I did for the last 12 hours!”

  5. lol! Like always I have a theory! (Oh no I hear them groan!)

    With democrats in control and a black democrat president, this is Gravy Train time for these hucksters! There is fierce competition amongst them, and very big competitive egos involved trying to get a leg up on the other guy. You just know they are secretly hoping for a democratic retention of control of government – because that is when they have the largest audience and the highest ratings. So O’reily is probably just trying to position himself as “the voice of reason” with a whizbanger of a one liner!
