A Prediction: Republicans Win in 2006

I'll just go out on a limb here and predict that when all is said and done, when all the final reports come in, when the public weighs the evidence and finds just who was responsible for the anarchy and looting and lack of effective response to Hurricane Katrina, the Democrats will not look very good.

This latest effort to "get" George Bush will blow up in the faces of the American Left, big time.

Oh, and I also predict Americans will get a big case of "compassion fatigue". The strident non-stop whining of the left, combined with the continuing bad behavior of many of the poor "victims" will cause many otherwise charitable persons to simply throw up their hands in disgust.

Remember, you read it here first.

UPDATE: I'm right on the money. Instapundit has this item:

I NOTICE that some people have seemed pretty unperturbed by the attacks on Bush.
Perhaps they had advance news of
polls like this:

Americans are broadly critical of government preparedness in the Hurricane Katrina disaster — but far fewer take George W. Bush personally to task for the problems, and public anger about the response is less widespread than some critics would suggest.

Considering the media hostility, these poll numbers are pretty good.

Exactly. When there's a big crisis, people want leaders who are calm, confident, and who roll up their sleeves and get to work. What they don't want are whiny, finger-pointing politicians who make excuses for their own incompetence.

As the old saying goes, when you're up to your ass in alligators (quite appropriate for this situation) it's not the time to argue about who was supposed to drain the swamp.

If the Democrats and Media keep this up, they'll end up destroying any credibility they have with the public when it comes to natural disasters -- just as their constant carping about Iraq has destroyed their credibility with the public on national defense.
