So conservatives are the ones who care about America?
Then what do you say about this?
Conservative radio host Glenn Beck told listeners Friday that Hurricane Irene, the Category 1 storm that’s working its deadly way up the Eastern Seaboard, is “a blessing from God.”
And we now have another Christian Republican, Michelle Bachman, and what she had to say about the hurricane.
"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."
They may not care, but even though the storm was weaker than predicted, it killed 37 people across the country, including at least three in Vermont.
The Republicans can feel free to cheer for natural disasters and the damage they cause, but those of us who live in the real world wind up having to deal with the consequences.
