New DEM talking point: Gustav is omen that God loves the DNC?

                                       

I’m no Obama fan, but I couldn’t see even Obama’s humor having such a sick twist. But apparently there’s either a macabre perspective deeply engrained in some of his fellow Democrats…

…or else they have quietly issued some talking points. For it’s ironic that within the same day, two prominent liberal progressives point to Hurricane Gustav, bearing down on the US Gulf Coast and thru our Gulf rigs (and possibly refineries in TX) as a sign that God somehow favors the DNC…. while *laughing*.

First up… Michael More appearing on the joke of a pundit, Olbermann’s show… (HT to Hot Air)

Approx: 1’15′ in….

(laughs) I was was just thinking that Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven (laughs).

This is the first thing out of his mouth. Hard to tell if Keith is stunned, or trying to hold back a smile….

Then, on a plane coming from from the DNC Convention, former DNC Chair Don Fowler had this conversation with Rep. John Spratt of SC. (H/T to Newsbusters)

Plus they think the hurricane’s going to hit (starts laughing) New Orleans about the time they start. The timing, at least it appears now, that it’ll be there Monday. That just demonstrates God’s on our side.

I was talking to friends last week about this myself… but not with any laughter. Nay, not even with resentment. I was raised in Florida and with hurricanes. And most of my immediate family still lives there. This is the season when we are all on hurricane watch. There by the grace of God could be my family, battening down, and evacuating.

There is no doubt the DNC hit in a week when they could garnish every drop of media attention. This week, the GOP will most certainly be sharing the spotlight with what could be another serious disaster on US shores. THe loss of life potential with a Cat 5 is enormous. The infrastructure damage not only to the cities – not exclusively New Orleans – plus our Gulf rigs and refineries could have serious economic repercussions.

And these Dems laugh, and evoke God as their partner.

Yet these DNC members think it’s funny: suggesting what a joke on the saps in the GOP that God would risk the lives of so many merely to thwart their electoral competition. But I doubt the GOP will see it that way. In fact, I’m sure the thoughts of so many, including delegates from those states, will find it a very somber week.

But moving such large events, when it involves catering, staging, hotels, setups, entertainment, rentals of halls and sundry support gear and services, is not likely to be possible. Instead, I shall be quite curious to see the grace that McCain and Palin will demonstrate… sharing what should be their time in the spotlight, with those who need that spotlight more.

  1. What do you bet the Dems are secretly hoping it’s a direct hit on New Orleans and that people get killed?

    Every bad thing, even natural disasters, are tools for them to exploit politically.

    They are sick, sick, sick!

    I think we can all be thankful for the Governors we have in the states that are in the direct line of this wicked storm. They are staying in their states preparing to face the aftermath. We now know that Fowler and Spratt will be of no help because they obviously aren’t concerned with what will be happening to our own citizens that are in the path of Gustav, because of politics. Discusting.

    The convention will have to go on, but hearts will be heavy and concern for our friends from the south will be great.

    I’m not so much surprised that anyone would cash in on a tragedy, but laughing and bringing God into it? Disgusting! I’m in no position to say what God would do, say or think about anything, but in my opinion, these Democratic pinheads deserve a serious smiting for this.

    You people are really morons. Olbermann and Moore were welcoming the idea of something taking media coverage away from the GOP convention!!! They were thankful that the Bush/McCain reaction to Katrina would be brought up all over again and that everyone would be reminded of the ineptness of the GOP to govern while Americans drown. They were thankful that the country would be constantly reminded of how McCain celebrated his birthday at a fundraiser while thousands of Americans were forced from their homes with no help from the Republican run Federal Government.

    After eight years of utter failure of the federal government and you people still find the dumbest things to get angry over…

    All those rooting for the hurricane are classless, clueless, heartless individuals and these actions should be held against them in perpetuity by all rational individuals.

    Lou, your attempt at spin here is weak and insipid. You need a reality check there Bub.

    That is my goal for November.

    Gustav is the best thing to happen to the MSM, now they have a flimsy excuse for NOT covering the RNC convention.

    Amusing how these people want death and destruction to befall people all in the name of political desire. People may or will die because of this storm and all you care about is winning the Whitehouse? When will this nation wakeup and truly discover that the Democrat Party desires only one thing; power.

    Imagine the MSM reaction were a repub to state, even in jest, that a hurricane was proof that God was a repub supporter!! Dems are not just inherently shameless–they also know full well that they can get away with the most disgraceful of statements!

    Just when you thought a few of the DNC members had taken the party down to a new low in representation, along comes Lou in defense….

    As humans, we could hope that glee at a hurricane striking the US as the event to boost DNC political status was confined to just these two bozos. Now we learn that perhaps that same sentiment is lurking deep within the soul of other liberal/progressives.

    Get with the program, Lou. You’re embarrassing not only your party… most of whom are quite disturbed at these statements… but the humans in your near vicinity.

    You call us morons? Scant insult from an inhuman amoeba who places partisan pride over human tragedy.
