Get Up Off Your Knees America, You Don't Have A Prayer

NewsA wise corporate executive the Angry Buddhist knows has often told the story of his strict Catholic, Italian Amerian mother who used to say to him when he was a kid in Newark, New Jersey, “If you want your prayers answered, sometimes you have to get up off your knees and do something about it.”

And your Angry Buddhist is here today to tell you that it's time to see George Bush's National Prayer Day of last Thursday as just what it was - a tired, cynical, pathetic attempt to call a time out in the blame game in order to call Jesus H. Christ himself off the bench and right into the middle of crunch time.

But any prayers about Katrina and her victims at this point are a total waste of time. Save your breath, your knees and your genuflection. If you want to help the people who need it most, send some money to Habitat for Humanity, or Second Harvest, or the Red Cross.

Sept. 17, 2005 | WASHINGTON -- There must be such a thing as divine mercy because the God who sends plagues of locusts and zaps people into pillars of salt would have surely struck down George W. Bush at the pulpit Friday morning. The administration's multipronged strategy to repair the damage wrought to cherished areas of the president's reputation was on full display at the National Prayer Service, which Bush called to remember victims of the hurricane. Bused-in evacuees from New Orleans? Check. Promotion of faith-based organizations? Check. Shifting blame to others? Check. This time, however, after weeks of laying blame at the doorsteps of Louisiana state officials and the mayor of New Orleans and even some of the victims themselves, Bush chose a bigger target: He blamed God.

Don't expect the goverment as run by George Bush to be able to effectively manage or execute a single fucking element of the recovery coming up. All that money he talked about lit up like a 9-11 memorial there in New Orleans' Jackson Square was just bullshit. If you have any poker instincts worth a shit about people you could read all his facial tics and bizzare body language mannerisms as exactly what they were - his "tells" Just like a hack card player, Bush's dimwitted facial expresions betrays any scrap of thought that passes through his brain.

That's been more than enough to fool just enough people... up till now...

Rove is in now in charge of the recovery... but it isn't working - look at these numbers from today's Rausmussen poll. They made the Angry Buddhist's heart sing and zing today on his birthday:

Bush Katrina Ratings Fall After Speech

September 18, 2005--Thirty-five percent (35%) of Americans now say that President Bush has done a good or excellent job responding to Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. That's down from 39% before his speech from New Orleans.
The latest Rasmussen Reports survey shows that 41% give the President poor marks for handling the crisis, that's up 37% before the speech.

Hey - Maybe it's the Angry Buddhist's prayers that are actually getting answered.

Nah, too many people currently in power would have sponatenously combusted by now if that were true.
