And that other rethuglican hack, Tim Pawlenty. Pawlenty, following the lead of Dubya's response to Katrina, vetoed a transportation infrastructure bill which would have provided funds to fix sagging infrastructure like the I-35W bridge.
The emperor-chimp, was AWOL during an emergency yesterday when this tragedy occurred. He made his statement regarding the Minneapolis bridge moments ago. He spoke about the tragedy for about a minute without mentioning the victims. He used his next few minutes to BLAME Democrats for not prioritizing certain bills in congress and talk about his tax cuts.
I really do hate these people.
