Democrats Play Cheap Partisan Politics As California Burns

Say what you will about Democrats, if significant human misery and loss of property is involved, they will always seek to score cheap political points by blaming the Bush administration.


Rather than coming together as Americans to help other Americans during times of crisis, the first reaction of Democrats is to vent their hatred of George W. Bush.

Consider the following comments concerning the California wildfires:

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid said, “One reason why we have the fires in California is global warming.” Reid made this unbelievable statement to reporters while stressing the need to pass the Democrats’ comprehensive energy package.

Looks like Reid has discovered a new tragedy directly traceable to global warming—terminal stupidity in Democrats!

Not to be out done when it comes to exploiting human misery for political gain, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) stated that, because of the war in Iraq, the California National Guard is experiencing a 50 percent equipment shortage, which is hampering the fire fighting effort.

This addled senator never misses a chance to chide Bush for fighting the war on terror in Iraq, rather than in downtown San Francisco.

But the award for mindless partisan skullduggery goes to California Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi, a Democrat. During an interview with Chris Matthews, Garamendi added much needed intelligence to the discussion when he:

-Demanded that the California National Guard be re-deployed from Iraq to help fight the fires;

-Opined that President Bush’s visit to California will be nothing but a public relations gesture and, in fact, a “distraction;”

-Reminded the world that the Bush administration stumbled miserably in helping Katrina victims in New Orleans, and encouraged Bush to be more helpful to suffering Californians.

By slamming Bush on both Iraq and Katrina, John Garamendi served notice that he is a Democrat to be reckoned with when it comes to reckless and irresponsible political posturing during a natural disaster.

So far, no leading Democrat has accused President Bush of actually starting the California wildfires.

But they are no doubt working on that very angle, 24/7.

Meanwhile, California continues to burn.
