Levee Drowning The Supreme Court—Shameful Again

Would you Want a Bush Appointee to Have your Life in His Hands?
Would you want a Bush appointee to have the life of the USA justice system in his hands?

First, let’s stop talking about hurricane Katrina. For New Orleans, it was a level 2 storm that should have been a minor annoyance caused by nature. Talk about the Levee Flood Disaster that was totally due to irresponsible planning, management and cut funding—human reasons that were totally preventable. The management hierarchy was rotten through the chain of command— the head of the army corps of engineers, the FEMA director, homeland security director—all incompetent, inexperienced political appointee losers put in place by the top loser, George Bush.

And now Bush wants to do to the Judicial branch of our nation what he did to the protection branch of our government. He proved in New Orleans that his approach to protecting the people of this nation has been an utter failure—that it is dangerous and deadly to appoint inexperienced political hacks to real jobs with real responsibilities. And now he wants to do the same thing with our Supreme court, appointing John Roberts as head of a court he’s not worked a day on.

There are plenty of good, honest experienced judges with years of experience and records of performance who will make far better judges than Roberts. Bush didn’t pick them because they won’t be as malleable and extreme right wing as his nominee, Roberts. Just as it was wrong to appoint all the inexperienced emergency management people, it is an outrageous shame that Bush is trying to foist this right wing extremist with zero experience on the supreme court as its chief. It is another sign of Bush’s total disrespect for good judgment, good leadership and good husbandry of the nation.

It is crazy that any responsible legislator would allow a newcomer to the supreme court to take over as the Chief Justice. Bush should chose from within. That may mean he picks either Antonin Scalia or Clarence Thomas, two men who are profoundly offensive to any rational American. That would be better than bringing in a total unknown who has never been engaged in the Supreme court as a justice.

If the Democrats were a united party, there wouldn’t be a problem. They would filibuster and demand a will known jurist with enough experience so both sides could be happy supporting him.

Tell your senators to reject Roberts as nominee for Chief justice and as a nominee for the court. Even if they are Republican, let them know you want a jurist who has a solid track record and experience, not another incompetent Bush stealth appointment.
