So, just about ready for the aftermath of the storm I see.
The people who have been told to evacuate but won’t have been interviewed.
People have been told to stock up and prepare to take care of themselves.
Warnings about potential failure of decades old infrastructure have been issued.
Templates reports are ready, waiting for the first (inevitably wrong) numbers to fill in and file.
Most of us have seen this before. Do we really have to wait until it actually happens before we “blame the new guy” for the deaths of people who didn’t follow the warnings and failed infrastructure built long before they were elected? For the disaster agencies being unable to take care of people who didn’t arrange to take care of themselves?
Happens every time. We don’t really need to wait for the reports. We know what they are going to say because we see the same reports every time. The only difference might be which side’s favorite buzz words are used.
The left beat up Bush for Katrina.
The right beat up Obama for Sandy.
Trump is getting beat up for Puerto Rico. (Which is a pet peeve of mine - many of the same people complaining about how slowly PR is being rebuilt are the same people warning of the devastation of climate change… Why are we rebuilding if we know it is going to get wiped out again!? Credibility is hurt when by inconsistency, people.)
We’ll see essentially the same reports pulled out with some tweaked wording for this storm.
President in office for 4 or 8 years.
Congress-people in office for 10, 20, 30 years…
The DNC and the RNC in power for 160 years.
But it is all “the new guy’s” fault every time …
