NBC Imbecile Chuck Todd: Shadow of Bush and Katrina Hangs Over GOP Convention

Posted by on Aug 27, 2012 at 8:11 am

Of course it does. Because the media will remind us over and over and over again. You think Mitt Romney and the GOP will get favorable coverage from the networks?

Well, look, there are folks with the Romney campaign who think, “Boy, Romney can’t catch a break.” Ever since he named Paul Ryan, got a little bit of momentum, after the Ryan pick, and then he’s disrupted by two storms — one, a political storm in Todd Akin which we just brought up, but now an actual storm. And when you think, as this storm moves to and closer to Louisiana, the specter, the sort of shadow of Bush and Katrina does hang over this convention. It is something organizers are concerned about.

And don’t be surprised if Tuesday gets changed again. They’ve already gotten rid of Monday, but they could change it again and have to squeeze it into some form of, say, two and a half days, Lester, basically, out of sensitivity.

They can’t win no matter what they do. They can cancel the entire convention and the networks will say they’re ashamed of Katrina’s legacy. They can proceed with business as usual and they’ll be accused of insensitivity. It doesn’t matter.

Here’s an idea: Barack Obama in his acceptance speech four years ago said he’s lower the sea levels. Doesn’t he have the power to simply command Hurricane Isaac to stop now?

    If Isaac hits and it’s a disaster, the MFM will constantly remind viewers of how terrible (allegedly) the Bush response to Katrina was.

    If Isaac hits and it’s no big deal, the MFM will praise the Obama regime for it’s superior handling of the disaster.

    Republicans can’t win against the MFM; they’re the Democrats’ PR Arm.

    ” It’s something organizers are concerned about.”
    No, Chuck – it isn’t.
    Because if anything bad happens because of this storm, it is the President’s fault.
    You told us so. Remember?

    Here’s some questions for the “media”:

    Any reports of chocolate milk being sold at the convention?

    Have they set up a cannibalism alert watch yet? If not, why not? That was supposedly all the rage way back when.

    Has anyone finally bothered to see if local officials are doing anything with their damned busses? That’d be a nice change.

    Are they planning on embedding with local police? That way, they could see the looting firsthand, since the New Orleans police was responsible for much of it.
