Our National Guard...

... busily guarding the wrong nation:

The rebuilding effort in tornado-ravaged Greensburg, Kansas, likely will be hampered because some much-needed equipment is in Iraq, said that state’s governor.

Governor Kathleen Sebelius said much of the National Guard equipment usually positioned around the state to respond to emergencies is gone. She said not having immediate access to things like tents, trucks and semitrailers will really handicap the rebuilding effort.


The Kansas National Guard has about 40 percent of the equipment it is allotted because much of it has been sent to Iraq.

This is an example of another state with a Democratic governor who wants to blame George Bush for a disaster in their state. Haley Barbour didn't blame Bush, he grabbed his state by the bootstraps and got to work.

School Bus Nagin, Kathleen Blanco and others in Louisiana couldn't take responsibility for their mistakes but could only blame the President. Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of Bush, as he is far too liberal for my liking (as are 99% of Democrats and 95% of Republicans, JFK, FDR, TR, and Lincoln would turn in their graves if they could see the pansies in congress), but he can't be responsible for everything.

We learned that he "hates black people" after Katrina. Maybe he also hates white people, and intentionally had the Kansas N.G. in Iraq because he knew that a small town in Kansas would destroyed.

Kathleen Sebelius goes on to say that the guard is at 40% capacity because of the war. It seems that this is true....but they were only at 60% before the war. What this shows is a manipulation of the facts. Lets research both sides of the story before we start to point fingers.

I live in Greensburg, and after the tornado the streets were full of National Guard men and equipment, getting things done... I saw no lack of anything...
