"A Moral Moment" after Katrina Gore's Leadership

"...When the corpses of American citizens are floating in toxic floodwaters five days after a hurricane strikes, it is time not only to respond directly to the victims of the catastrophe but to hold the processes of our nation accountable, and the leaders of our nation accountable, for the failures that have taken place. ..I would urge you to make this a moral moment, to make this a moral cause..." Al Gore 9/9/05

In the speech that President Gore made that day he also used the Biblical verse, "where there is no vision the people perish." How true and how obvious it was immediately following Katrina. Thank you President Gore for the vision which you laid out in your speech to the 2005 Sierra Summit ( see for transcript). If only you were in the White House instead of that failure we have there now. You were the last President that was actually elected by the people of the United States. The 2004 "election" was even worse than the 2000 sham when the "High Court" got involved where it didn't belong and ruined America, not to mention its reputation with Americans. The public is still angry about that partisan spectacle. I digress though from honoring your call for "a moral moment" in America. You are right; it is unacceptable the way our dead have been disrespected by this administration. It is criminal the way the "weakest among us" were left to die and/or suffer for days while our Federal Government DID NOTHING! Where is our morality? Where is the morality of the "moral values" party? I don't know about the former, but as to the latter...THERE IS NONE! Anyone who stands with Bush, Brownie, Chertoff, and the rest of them after Katrina has NO MORALITY! Any decent human being, any moral person, any Christian can plainly see that Katrina was the last straw. Katrina revealed to all of us the priorities of the greedy, the corrupt, the hypocritical, the modern day Pharisees. It is pointless to defend the INDEFENSIBLE and excuse the INEXCUSABLE! You cannot have it both ways; you are either on the right side or the wrong side. Jesus Christ said it, "when you do it unto the least of these you do it unto me." Morality demands that you condemn this colossal failure of the Federal Government to step up to the plate and take care of its citizens in their time of need. You know it and I know it.
