Obama Wins — GOP Considers Delaying Convention

August 29th, 2008 | by Steve O |

The GOP prayed and prayed for rain to ruin the Democratic Convention and they got it, but God screwed up a little and got the RNC and DNC conventions mixed up. Or did he? But somehow I think the GOP are just as happy about the rain this way they can distance themselves from Obama’s grand slam speech.

Plus, they don’t want to ignore the floating bodies like they did last time. You got to love this gem of a quote;

“Senator McCain has always been sensitive to national crisis,” said McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds

Excuse Mr. Tucker, the last time this happened, Mr. McCain was eating cake on the tarmac with Mr. Bush.

Maybe this time, you two can grab a ceremonial water pump and head down to the Big Easy for a photo-op.

    I can just see the headlines now “GOP having convention while poor people struggle with hurricane in NO”
    Although maybe now they have competent leadership down there this time they will be ready instead of waiting for a bail out.

    Actions speak so loudly that words hardly matter, and in just about every way, Bush and McCain have each shown that they are indifferent to the problems and well-being of ordinary Americans. They have consistently tried to screw military people, veterans, and their families, at the same time they’ve bleated about supporting the troops; they’ve talked about their concern for American workers while they’ve done everything they could to help the corporations that are exporting jobs, and simultaneously worked to shred social services for all of us who are those workers and our families; they’ve talked environmentalism while they’ve relentlessly pushed to deregulate polluters and give them tax breaks; they’ve continued Reagan’s campaign to create a permanent underclass by wrecking public education; and on and on.

    Of course they didn’t give a shit about the people in New Orleans! Their concern was with covering their asses - once Bush even bothered to acknowledge the disaster, days later - and with, as Barbara Bush put it, hoping those tacky black people fleeing the disaster area kept moving and didn’t stop in her beloved Texas. Anyone who claims to believe Bush and McCain care about anyone except their cronies and corporate sponsors is either a liar or a fool.

    Classic Catch-22.

    They postpone their convention in deference to a possible national tragedy, they look like they are reeling from Obama’s IMHO iffy liberal diatribe (I am biased, I thought it was stirring but empty of any substance, like the man himself).

    They go on with their convention, one as opulent as the Democrats, and they look like Nero, fiddling as Rome burns.

    The RNC should cancel it, send the money they would have spent to a charity and get on with the campaign.

    Neither campaign is composed of choirboys, Jarhead. Just admit you are okay with cronies, special interests and corporate sponsors (as is Obama, evidenced by the convention) as long as they are on your side.
