Carol Platt Liebau: Too "Good" To Be True

Too "Good" To Be True

Remember the sobbing guest, Jefferson Parish president Aaron Broussard, on "Meet the Press" the weekend after Hurricane Katrina? Tim Russert accepted his pitiful, Bush-bashing story with nary a follow up question.

Now it appears that his story was untrue in many important particulars -- including the fact that experts believe the mother who supposedly died on Friday was, in fact, alive on Sunday when Broussard was on television crying about her.

The linked MSNBC piece delicately refers to the entire mess as a "misunderstanding."

so it's good that she died on whatever day she drown?

you are enjoying the thought that a woman drowned and someone with no sleep, no food, extreme stress can't remember which day?

How...compassionate you folks are. Really. Rejoicing in someone's pain, anguish and death.

Carol,
Much is coming out the socialist left will fight to deny or sling names as Christian churches have been on the roll and on the front lines. We know who has their hands in the muck and who has the muck in their mouths. The way the american people,led by the churches, just reclaimed america. I ask the elite socialists: Where were You?

cookie jill,

Its not that 'We'(the conveniently undefined) rejoice in the misery of anyone. Its just that 'We' (the manifestly decent) detest the sardonic exploitation of misery and tragedy for the sake of theatrical obfuscation... and political opportunism. 'You' people would seem to rejoice in both.

mr. atos,

Your statement that you and yours detest the sardonic exploitation of misery and tragedy for the sake of theatrical obfuscation... and political opportunism would carry a little more weight if your Party, led by your President, hadn't spent the last four years dancing on the graves of 3,000 people for political gain.
