Moore Writes to Bush

It looks like the inevitable happened, Michael Moore has gotten involved with the hurricane Katrina aftermath. He’s written to the president, not only that but he’s written a letter full of lies to the president. As you read, the parts that aren’t in italic are written by me.

Friday, September 2nd, 2005

Dear Mr. Bush:

Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.

What do you expect him to do Mr. Moore? Rewind time? Because as far as I know we can’t do that. And guess what else? There are Helicopters.

Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?

And guess what else Mr. Moore? We have soldiers too.

Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!

Oh please. Would you want to meet with someone that called you every swear in the book? I know I wouldn’t. Besides, if I remember right, Ms. Sheehan said,
“I’m actually glad he didn’t meet with me. It would ruin my momentum,”
I bet your Liberal buddies never told you that.

I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?

It’s actually illegal for the federal government to interfere with the things that you wished for him to do without their permission. And if I remember right, the mayor was sitting there picking his nose during the hurricane. It was his responsibility to help and he didn’t.

And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

At least Bush had a good reason to cut the funding; president Clinton cut the funding to save a couple of fish.

On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by
how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over
New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you
couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a
commander in chief. Been there done that.


Does Bush work for the Red Cross? No. It’s not his job to give a speech while standing waist deep in water/fecal matter. It was not safe for him to be there. Besides, with all the people misinformed into thinking this was Bush’s fault; he would have probably been assassinated on the spot.

There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland. No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!

Keep calling him racist. It only proves to people how wrong you really are. Forget all of the white people air lifting people out. Forget all of the white people donating money. Just because they were late makes them racist, right? The answer is no. Bush was late because after the hurricane hit, the levees had not broken and things weren’t that bad. In fact people were saying, “New Orleans dodged the bullet”. Bush was under the impression that everything was alright, and everything was. But everyone’s seemed to forget about this. Well not me Mr. Moore.

You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.

Yours,

Michael Moore

P.S. That annoying mother, Cindy Sheehan, is no longer at your ranch. She and dozens of other relatives of the Iraqi War dead are now driving across the country, stopping in many cities along the way. Maybe you can catch up with them before they get to DC on September 21st

Can you believe this guy? Well the sad thing is, is that I knew this was coming. If you’re as mad at him as I am, you will send him an e-mail. You can send him my article if you don’t feel like writing your own. If you do send him mine, copy and paste from these two points,

    cody: heres a quite different reaction to this letter:

    "OK, I've intentionally resisted writing about all the horrible shit that's occurring down there due to the fact that everybody else is. Since my good friend and fellow blogger K is doing such a fine job following the grande fiasco on her own blog http://hidingfromtherealworld.blogspot.com/ I hadn't really felt the need to come out of my self-absorbed shell and deal with something that effects the entire country.

    But then my good friend Michael Moore came by for dinner. He lives in Flint, you know, only about 45 minutes from me. And boy when Michael comes for dinner, the fully stocked pantry goes with him! At one point I even had to convince my dear friend that my chihuahua wasn't cooked!

    Naturally, my girlfriend being the very model of a stalwart Republican, decided to leave the house until the "filthy liberal" was gone, so I actually had a good time in my own house for once.

    I was sad to see my good buddy Mikey Moore go. He exemplifies the "take-no-shit" activist attitude to which I aspire every time I walk into a Starbucks and order coffee that tastes like it was strained through Rosie O'Donnell's thong. Why, I remember quite clearly the other day, Michael and I were discussing a possible sequel to "Farenheight 9/11" and we...

    Ah, fuck it, nobody's buying this shit anyway! The following is a letter I received from Michael along with thousand of others addressed to George Dubya Bush regarding his stellar performance in a time of crisis. Enjoy:

    (micheal moore's letter)

    ***Scribe's note-Could that picture below be of a younger, studlier Michael Moore just discovering his mass sex appeal? You decide.***"

    This crazy liberal has posted on my site many times, and is very crazy, I think. I cant believe hes agreeing with him!

    your comments about Michael Moore's letter were laughable.

    you chose the worst possible format to analyse it. By pulling apart the semantics of every paragraph you are forcing yourself to feature spot and find something to disagree with, even if nothing is there.

    Sure, Michael Moore is going to jump on the bandwagon because thats what he does well but all you are going to achieve is making it more obvious tbat all you ever set out to do is ruubbish anything Michael Moore says in exactly the same way as Bush-haters try to twist his words and poor speech rather than look at everything he is saying.

    Re:"What do you expect him to do Mr. Moore? Rewind time? "

    This comment i find rather perculiar, it's not like a judge would say to a criminal, "yeh you did commit murder but hey we can't rewind time, I'm going to let you go".

    Its exactly the same situation. Just because Bush's mistake is in the past doesn't mean nothing should happen in response to a bad thing that he has done and neither does this disallow Liberal's from using anything they like against Bush.

    I find some of your comments bizarre: RE:"There are Helicopters" . Sure they are, but wouldn't it help if there were more? Wouldn't it be better if more helicopters were used? I'm sure that Bush could have got them , Im sure there is enough space in sky, I'm sure they would have saved lives

    Rather than finding everything you can wrong with a letter posted by someone you clearly hate, rather than picking it apart a critising the weakest part, tell me what Bush did well, tell me how the responce was adequete in the situation.

    Just dont tear apart this letter because it doesn't bring anything else to an overall argument about who was responsible for the response to katrina except more hate and, be it to Micahel Moore(who yes we know you already dislike Republicans) or George Bush( yes we know you hate him Liberals).

    And seriously, does any care about some anecdote relating to Michael Moore from a Republican, or Republican influenced (wife) blogger looking to gain attention for the fact he had dinner with the Liberal equivalant of Hitler?

    And "crazy liberal"? Who are you trying to convince? Or is that a strategy for reminding the unnappy Republicans that it is infact "crazy liberals" who we need to focus attention, not Bush's responce?

    Calling someone a crazy liberal doesn't help anyone accomplish anything, although it may make you a few more right-wing friends.

    Michael Moore is an embarassment to our country and very close to being a traitor. Once again he proves to all of us just who he is.

     
  • At 10/9/05 4:47 PM, Blogger Allisoni Balloni said…

    I'm glad you posted that, Gayle. And not at all because I agree with you. Imagine if a man you thought was an embarrassment to your country was the president. Imagine if MICHAEL MOORE was elected president. How would you feel about that? Would you speak out against it? Or would you just be nice and go along as he screwed up not only his country but the rest of the world? I would certainly hope you wouldn't sit back and watch, if you so strongly disagreed. Nothing will change if those who care keep quiet. Michael Moore has every right to do what he does and he is certainly NOT alone in his opinions.

    YES YES YES!!!!

    I absolutely love that analogy, Allisoni Balloni!

    benjamin:

    I'm not tearing apart anything, I'm just responding to a letter. Cool it.

     
  • At 12/9/05 12:35 PM, Blogger Drew said…

    Yup, Gayle... there's just something traitorous about calling out the government and corporate america on all the lying, B.S. and hypocracy that the main stream media won't dare to touch. How dare he question the Commander in Chief! That's downright Stalinistic! Furthermore... anyone who disagrees with the Right Wing Machine should be labelled un-patriotic, tarred and feathered, and sent to that liberal, God-hating, beer drinking, hockey playing country up north!!!!

    Who's with me?????

    /sarcasm

    I would have been fine with this letter if in fact Bush was wrong. But he's not.

    I sure do seem to get their dander up, Cody. I have to wonder if it's the Cross? They seem to be more ticked off at me than they are at you! I'm flattered.

    By the way, did you know that the Red Cross had truckloads of water and food they wanted to deliver to New Orleans and they were told by the state of Louisianna that they couldn't deliver it to the Convention Center and Superdome because it would attract more people? The state of Louisianna itself turned away offered help from the Red Cross! But the state of Louisianna, being run by Democrats, didn't obviously want any dirty Republican help.

    www.cnn.com has the article, if you should care to read it. I'll make it even easier. The specific link to go to the direct article is: www.cnn.com/

    Micheal Moore told the UK press that Americans are stupid. Yeah, he's a real patriot guys.

    I can't wait untill he moves to Canada, he seems to love it there, more than he loves America. Just watch Bowling for Columbine.
