Michael Moore's letter to the President...And a Rebuttal

Michael Moore's open letter to President Bush:

Dear Mr. Bush:

Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?

Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!

I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing.

Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!

You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.

Yours,Michael Moore

P.S. That annoying mother, Cindy Sheehan, is no longer at your ranch. She and dozens of other relatives of the Iraqi War dead are now driving across the country, stopping in many cities along the way. Maybe you can catch up with them before they get to DC on September 21st.Back to top

Dear Mr. Moore,

I appreciate you taking the time to write me regarding the situation in the Gulf Coast. I would like to correct a few facts that you, and your liberal friends, tend to obscure or even alter so that you may gain political advantage.

First of all, if you took the time to read the newspapers on the morning of Tuesday of August 30, you would have read headlines that said "New Orleans spared" or "New Orleans survives Katrina" It was later that day, when the levees gave way, that reulted in America's worst natural disaster. Within twenty-four hours I was in the Gulf Coast to observe the damage and within twenty-four hours of that, the troops were sent in as well as supplies and medicine. It can be tough driving through the only Interstate when it is completely submerged.

You also negelcted the fact, Mr. Moore, that I authorized state of emergencies in all the Gulf states days before Katrina hit. By doing this, the affected states would have easier and quicker access to emergency federal funding. It also mobilized the National Guard which were put on alert. I am sorry that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana did not familiarize themselves with the protocol of an emergency state, if so, they would have received federal help much more quickly. But, to be fair, they are both Democrats, and therefore are generally incompetant when it comes to national emergencies. I mean, could you imagine a President Al Gole during 9/11? I shudder when I think how close that reality almost was.

As for the levees, Mr. Moore, and the report you are referring to about it's risk and need to be upgraded, well, sir, if you check the dates, it was issued in 1993 when Bill Clinton was president. The levees are a state responsibility, not a Federal one, so you might want to talk to he Democratic governors since that report was issued as to why they neglected to deal with upgrading their levees.

One of the things I noticed while surveying the damage done to New Orleans is that all the buses used for public transit were sitting in their depots flooded out. I am troubled that the mayor of New Orleans didn't requisition the buses to evacuate his own citizens (although he did manage to evacuate preferred guests and tourists - ahead of his own citizens - from the Superdome). I'm assuming the mayor of New Orleans is not ignorant, but I can't understand why he did not take the poorest of the poor and desitute and put them on the now flooded buses and evacuate his people, his citizens.

In the end, Mr. Moore, what happened in the Gulf was a catastrophe of biblical proportions. That you would find the time to write me such a sobering, sarcastic letter shows me where your heart truly lies and it is not with the suffering people of the Gulf states. No, it seems that your heart lies in the ugly state of opportunitism of the worst kind: To push your agenda at the expense of those who are hurting. But, since the 1970's, that has been the Democratic Party's M.O.


PS Do you realize that the rate of number of hurricanes per year has decreased while I've been in office? Do you really want to insist on continuing your silly and contrived environmental arguments?

Do you also realize that no new oil refineries have been built since 1973? Do you know that it is because of legislation by leftist enviros to prohibit constructing new refineries that has made the price at the pump so high? Of course you knew that!!! It has been your plan all along - to make gasoline so expensive that the best alternative is to stop producing it, regardless that your "enviro" war most affects the people like those we have seen on television this past week.

Your "compassion" does not impress me.

I really do not care what some nobody movie- maker has to say about Bush. Michael Moore is making money on his movies and people are dumb enough to side with him. As far as people having their opinions about Bush, we the people need to realize that he is not God, he is a man with a job to do. I want to know from the Democrats if they were proud of the last Democratic president. What a joke! Ultimately, if people do not like it here, and they dislike Bush so much, then they should think about moving out of the country. Why don’t they go somewhere where there are no rights, no freedom of speech, where women are not allowed to vote? We'll see how long it takes them to appreciate this great country.

President Bush can't make everyone happy, but he's doing a much better job than Clinton ever did. I can really only compare those two because of my age. I am proud of our president. Imagine what the world would have been like if Al Gore was president when 9/11 happened? I cringe to even think of it. My situation in life is not the greatest right now. But I am very thankful that I live in this country and I support my president for the job that he is doing. I am a Hispanic woman, and a REPUBLICAN at that!

I am also thankful for our once and always great REPUBLICAN president, Mr. Ronald Regan. If it weren't for him, my home country of El Salvador would not be in a state of improvement like it is today. My country's unfortunate political situation, and Mr. Regan's choice to save those that were suffering, is the reason why my family was granted permission to come to this country and have freedom. For that, I am very thankful.

Just think, I could have been kidnapped, or worse, as a young girl and forced to be a soldier for the guerilleros in El Salvador. I guess maybe until you have lived in a country were you have to get down on the cold floor of your house in the middle of the night to avoid getting hit by gunfire, (and we lived in one of the few nice neighborhoods too) then you don't understand how LUCKY we are to live in this great nation and have a WONDERFUL, God-fearing president like George W. Bush. Like I said before, the man is not God, for goodness sakes. He is doing a great job though.

One last thing, I am very sorry for Cindy Sheehan's loss. I am myself, the proud mother of two young boys. Let us remember that her son was not forced to join the service. He signed up of his OWN FREE WILL. Her son is a hero, and I do not think that he would be very thrilled to see what she is up to.

I admire the predient too. He apologized for Abu Ghraib. He apologized for his dim-witted response to the hurricane. Perhaps he can also apologize for lying about wmd. And for the deficit he's run up. And for Rove. And for getting nearly 2,000 Americans killed in his useless war. As for Wendy's absurd comment that Casey wouldn't approve of his mother's actions - you know next to nothing about him and to presume he would, or would not, approve is sophmoric.

Is that all you got??? I think that you need to RE read the last paragraph. Did you or did you not see the part where it says that he signed up for that job of his OWN FREE WILL???? That is what makes this country so great too. That you have a choice to sign up in the military or not. Just in case you were wondering, I have 3 family members that went overseas to fight for your freedom, two of them have safley returned, and one is still there fighting for his country. I KNOW FOR A FACT that these soldiers would not want thier mommies making such a huff. They would want their memories honored for the work that they have done,the soldiers that they were, not for the rucuss that thier moms would make. Don't tell me that I "know next to nothing" about this.... perhaps the one that knows "next to nothing" is YOU.
