A new low for Randi Rhodes?

Is this quote from yesterday's show a new low, or just one of a long series of lows?

"This President is never gonna do the right thing. I think somewhere deep down inside him he takes a lot of joy about losing people, if he thinks they vote Democrat or if he thinks they're poor, or if he thinks they're in a blue state, whatever his reasons are not to rescue those people who are (planning?) for their safety."

UPDATE: There's a little more on Randi here, including an attempt to confirm her Bush was golfing during Katrina bit. That links to audio (warning: starts audio player) of her statement above.

Keep speaking the truth!

She's also said he wants black people to die. She grows more disgusting everyday and in every way.

I hope advertisers are waking up to AAR content. I will boycott any company that advertises on that skanky lying hoe's show.

Boy, I hope she campaigns for as many Democrats as she can muster. That will hepl guarantee that the jackass party will never see the White House again.

No surprise here. I heard this at the time, and didn't even blink. She's been spewing this venom every day, every minute she's on the air (which tends to be in 4 minute segments interrupted by 6 minutes of laughably cheap commercials). Nice recipe for broadcasting success.

For reals- this isn't some isolated statement that could be taken out of context. She keeps saying it, keeps expanding it. Randi just agreed with a caller that the strategy, as formed by Karl Rove, is to let this disaster happen so the people will blame the Democratic governor and mayor. And then she says she's outraged that Bush is trying to politicize this thing.

And remember, Randi always insinuates Bush was behind 9-11 and that he wants as much disaster and dead soldiers as possible in Iraq so he can steal money and not have to pay veteran's benefits. So, I'd have to say this is just one of a series of lows.

Despite being a leftist network, if Air American possessed any morsel of decency, Randi Rhodes would have been fired on the spot.

Michael Graham lost his job over far, far less!

I think Randi almost hits the nail on the head. I don't think Bush wanted these people to die, but I also think he doesn't really care that they did. His only concern is his extreme political base and the "have mores" that support him because of his tax cuts. Americans need to wake up and start putting God and country before this man. He is one of the "false prophets" our Bible warns us about, using Christianity to forward an agenda of war and destruction, and total destruction of the working middle class.

Comments like yours are the reason Bush, and the Republican party, hold all three branches of government. The demcoratic party has decended into a party of conspiracy theorists that no one in their right mind could ever vote for. If you truly believe the propaganda you hear on AAR you should seek professional help.

I don't approve of her comments, but what Randi Rhodes is hinting at has a ring of truth. To ignore it is folly. America is only as strong as it's most vulnerable citizens. We should stop blaming and name calling, and figure out a way to shore up New Orleans so Al Queda doesn't take this opportunity to waltz on into America while we're pointing fingers at each other.

The left ought to be thankful that Rhodes and the rest of AAR hasn't gotten better ratings. If their disgusting comments ever received full media coverage (like Rush's Donovan McNabb comment), swing voters would vacate the Democratic party in droves.

As usual Ms. Rhodes has nothing constructive to say on any level and about any issue. So friends, don't get your "tit in the wringer" over her latest absurd comments about Katrina.

The reason why Bush is President is because the Supreme Court put him there in 2000 and Christians who don't bother to educate themselves on the real issues in our country voted for him in 2004. You get what you vote for. They voted out of fear and ignorance. I'm sure that the neocon talk radio people only tell the "truth." That is, the truth according to Bush. It's time to put God and country before a man. Wake up America!!
