Aaron Broussard responds
Tim Russert went on the attack today to please the right wing apologists who had the nerve to fact check his impassioned outburst on MTP during the nightmare of Katrina. (Update-fact checking is fine, but to me this was callous) When you don't like what you hear-attack the messenger. Yes, you uncovered a distorted time line of events. A man who had experienced the pain of his friends mothers death muddied the facts. Who did it hurt? All levels of government including the President and you can't have that. What was the end result? A mans mother died. Shes gone. You cretins. How do you sleep at night knowing that? What did your investigation prove? Aaron Broussard got the facts wrong in an emotional outburst on national television. Way to go. I have posted videos that attacked most everyone involved in this fiasco. Everyone played a part in this but you would rather attack Broussard who witnessed the mass death of hundreds of people and the coldness of your own hearts couldnt allow for him losing it. I probably can guess that not one of you shed a tear over anybody that lost their lives because of government ineptitude.
I wonder how many of these apologists have ever been in a catastrophe before? These fools see any attempt to put the blame at the door of the federal government as biased. Even Michelle Malkin who I disagree with on almost everything only had the nerve to post a brief article on the episode. I think she knew better than to get into the action herself because you know she would if she felt strongly about it.
To explain it to the tools. Tragedy like we saw with Katrina has a horrifying effect on you when you're in the middle of it. (I've been in two major earthquakes) When your friend's mother dies because of neglect you don't line up your talking points and crocodile tears to score political points.
Broussard was stunned today when Timmy replayed the segment and he attacked back. You decide on the merits of what he said both times he was on the show.
Broussard: "Listen, sir, somebody wants to nitpick a man's tragic loss of a mother because she was abandoned in a nursing home? Are you kidding? What kind of sick mind, what kind of black-hearted people want to nitpick a man's mother's death? They just buried Eva last week. I was there at the wake. Are you kidding me? That wasn't a box of Cheerios they buried last week."
