Mention

January 29th, 2008 by Editor B

Doesn’t it seem ridiculous that our collective mood should rise and fall based on what this guy says in his speech?

Tonight, the armies of compassion continue the march to a new day in the Gulf Coast. America honors the strength and resilience of the people of this region. We reaffirm our pledge to help them build stronger and better than before.

And tonight I’m pleased to announce that, in April, we will host this year’s North American Summit of Canada, Mexico, and the United States in the great city of New Orleans.

I don’t trust anything this president says. I don’t trust any president for that matter, but most especially this president. His famous speech at Jackson Square, in the aftermath of Katrina, was so full of broken promises. How could any of us trust him again?

And yet it is good to be remembered, unlike last year.

Yes indeed. It seems somewhat ridiculous.

Update: As usual, Oyster has a more insightful analysis.

    That’s why I didn’t watch it. How can someone with no grasp of reality accurately describe the state of our “union”?

    Distrust of all government is a good idea. Depend on them for nothing. Expect nothing. Demand nothing. And you will never be disappointed.

    (Except when they do, do something.)

    It’s a gift that costs the receiver way more than it costs the giver.

    The best we can hope for is that Canadian and Mexican companies come to the city and want to bring 1000s of good paying jobs.

    The worst we can hope for is thousands more rent-a-hippies getting their skulls cracked in New Orleans by the NOPD.

    What we will get is blocked streets, motorcades, lockdown security…

    And did they mention what week in April cause we have some pretty nice events in the French Quarter Fest and Jazz Fest… Or is it just, we are going to do this, you deal.

    With apologies to Gary Larson, to me the speech went something like this:

    blah blah blah blah New Orleans blah blah blah….

    At least I now know what he said about us. Not that it matters.
