Da Speechifier

I'll have more on the speech tomorrow. For now, it was good -- real good. In fact, if you closed your eyes and cleared your mind, you would've sworn a Big Government Democrat was on the podium. And then, when you open them back up, you read TLaura's blog (which is great, by the way) and are dumped right back in reality:

Too fucking perfect. According to David Kuznet at TNR, it wasn't Gerson who wrote the masterpiece. It was Bush's new head speechwriter, William McGurn. Just how completely phony was the speech? McGurn is a former editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page! All that big-government-conservatism, your-government-is-there-for-you pap Bush was spouting had been penned by one of those WSJ drown-it-in-the-bathtub, government-is-the-enemy hyper-libertarians, whose ex-colleagues have, among other things, been urging Bush to use Katrina as an excuse to push school vouchers on the exiled flood victims moving into other communities! Oh Democrats, Democrats, wherefore art thou?

"Wherefore" means "Why."

I know. Why?

Hey! I didn't know you had a blog! Why don't you put your URL in the URL field like normal people?

Back to the issue, what really pops any idealistic balloon that Bush's speech might inflate is the appointment of Karl Rove to oversee reconstruction. Marshall has rightly been going nuts on this. First, Rove is another Michael Brown with no skill in doing the thing he's being hired to do. (Though to be fair, Rove is quite skilled at some other things, while Brown wasn't.) Second, the gigantic keg of money that's going into this project will be distributed by one of the most partisan guys in America today. The liberal rhetoric here masks a plot to give money to the people Republicans like to give money to, and to do whatever other dark things Rove has in mind with billions of dollars.

You should have known this was going to be the content the moment you found out he was going to make a speech at all. He didn't have to go on TV to say he wasn't gonna do jack shit. That was the default position.

So knowing that the only reason to go on TV is to try to recapture some mojo on the Gulf Coast situation, the only possible outcome would be pandering and throwing money at the problem.

Why would anyone even have watched this?

I've never seen a paradigm shift occur on live television before.

$200 billion. Little control over the spending. Talk about the poor and impoverished and *helping them* from the most Republican of Presidents.

The era of big government is back: now it is just a discussion of who is better suited to run the government. Oh, and, you know: responsibility. Paying for it and all that.

And the issue -- if we want to win back the WH -- becomes graft and cronyism. We all know it is coming.

By the way, there's a typo (on my part). It's William McGurn, not David McGurn. I was just thinking of David Kusnet when I wrote his name.

For serious, last night could have been another Bullhorn Moment for Bush, but he instead failed to inspire either side of the aisle. What's more, his carefully contrived image far surpassed any actual content.
