Drown The Federal Government In A Bathtub?

Leftie Bush haters have stooped to another low since Hurricane Katrina with the publication of a photograph showing a drowned New Orleans captioned with the following quote "'My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.' Grover Norquist, Republican Strategist and author of the Bush Plan."

Drown the federal government in a bathtub? The charge would be laughable if it weren't leveled in such an odious manner. Norquist may be the author of some oh so scary Bush plan to destroy the federal government but the Bush Administration doesn't seem to be following that plan. The federal government has grown enormously during the Bush's presidency and it shows little sign of slowing down. The photograph has little connection to reality and is nothing more than a feel-good prop that appeals to a preening moral vanity.

The photograph is evidence, as if we needed any more, that Bush opponents hate the man with a passion that leads them to stoop to any level to attack the President. The only consolation for Republicans is that hate is not a winning political strategy. With the speed that this photograph was produced, I swear, Bush-haters take a special delight in using the graves of the dead as platforms for their political attacks.

The link to the photograph is here.
