Still Not A Caring Human Being
Back on the 7th
of this month I ranted about Bush failing to acknowledge the pain of other people when he didn't make a public statement of condolences to Italy after US forces killed an Italian security official.
He's done it again, waiting until after the media starting running stories
about his failure to mention the deaths at the Red Lake reservation, to make a telephone call. He promised them Federal aid, as if he was doing them a favor.
Somebody tell Dubya that it is a Federal issue. Murders on reservations are Federal crimes, tried in Federal courts. He isn't doing them any favors; it's his job.
The cretin can spend taxpayer dollars to fly back to Washington to sign hastily passed bills to interfere in matters that have been the province of the states since the Constitution was signed, but can't rouse himself to offer his obviously faked sympathy in a matter that is a Federal concern.
In his discussion of Adam Nagourney's paean
