Former DNC Chairman Don Fowler Thrilled Gustav is Arriving in Time for the RNC [Update 3: The story behind the story]

August 30, 2008

“The Gustav card”

What another video? I know but this is a holiday weekend
(so I am taking it easy)
– and this can’t wait.

Former DNC Chairman Don Fowler laughs at New Orleans while talking to Congressman John Spratt of SC. You can’t hear Spratt but he chuckles along with.

Embedded video
Update 8/31/08: I have switched out the video embed. This version is far more damning as it also features a related statement by Michael Moore while a guest on Olberman. As reprehensible as Fowlers, providing further proof that democrats only pretend to care. What good is a natural disaster if it does not dampen the RNC?

No disrespect intended (what so ever) to American’s facing the threat of Gustav.
They will continue to be in my prayers.

The mask has been lifted. The inhumane monster underneath is exposed.

Are you a good Democrat? (Video 2: You gotta have Faith)

The hurricane’s going to hit New Orleans about the time they start…. The timing is, at least it appears now, that it’ll be there Monday. That just demonstrates God’s on our side.

Au contraire you foul man. This just demonstrates that you are not on NOLA’s side.

Michael Moore –

*Chuckles* I was just thinking that Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven. *Chuckles* I uh…to have this planned at the same time..yeah well..that it would actually be on it’s way to New Orleans on day one of the Republican convention up in the Twin Cities at the top of the Mississippi River. Uh….I mean it’s… certainly I hope nobody get’s hurt.

Illogical you two ton buffoon.
You cheer the fact that Gustav will be hitting in time for the RNC then try to cover you a*s with hopes no one gets hurt. You can not have it both ways you ignorant POS. Find a boulder and crawl under it please!

An Open Letter to God, from Michael Moore

Update 3 9/3/08:

The story behind the story.
Glenn Beck

[…] Sitting right behind him is Caleb Howe. He’s from and Caleb is on the phone with us. And Caleb, you are the guy, you were sitting right behind Fowler.

HOWE: I was.

GLENN: How did that did you switch seats? How did that happen?

HOWE: That was just coincidence. I was just sitting in my seat and Congressman Spratt sat directly in front of me and Fowler sat across the aisle in front of me.

GLENN: Okay. And did you have like a little Flip Video or how did you record this?

HOWE: Just a handheld camera, you know, a single shot camera.

GLENN: Okay. So you’re and did you position it some place? Where did you position the camera?

HOWE: I just, yeah, I just sat it right on my knee. You know, when they came on the plane, they were clearly holding the audience, speaking very loud. Fowler was the one to whom all they were deferring and they were putting on a show. So I thought, well, this is going to be good. So I pulled out my camera and turned it on.

GLENN: Okay. And how much conversation happened prior to what you captured?

HOWE: Just a few minutes. Mostly trashing Sarah Palin.

GLENN: And what were they saying about Sarah Palin?

HOWE: Congressman Spratt called her just terrible. Fowler said she really had nothing to offer; they picked her just because she was a female, she was he called her Quayle on steroids.

GLENN: All right. So you had that. And then you heard Fowler say what he said.

HOWE: That’s right.

GLENN: And what was the describe the scene a little bit.

HOWE: Well, you know, he had people sitting around turned paying attention to him and he was putting on his big show and he started laughing and everybody said along with. And, you know, when he said this is just proof that God is on our side, everybody was nodding in agreement and chuckling to themselves widely and everybody generally seemed to accept the premise.

GLENN: Did you ever introduce yourself?

HOWE: I did not, no. Although Congressman Spratt’s wife did notice my Reagan shirt I was wearing at the time and give me a funny look. So…

GLENN: Now, you went right away and you posted this video.

HOWE: Correct. […]

Well there you go folks. What a fool Fowler was, speaking so candidly with a conservative on board wearing a Reagan tee, no less. He walked right into this fiasco.

    Yes, hurricanes are funny, aren’t they?! How unfortunate for the Dems that this got recorded on video.

    Neil’s last blog post..Woo-hoo! Palin is McCain’s VP pick

    How about that idiot Nagin saying that Gustav was a storm unlike anything they’d seen? umm… did he learn anything from Katrina?

    melo’s last blog post..fight the smears, eh? (updated)

    Yes ’tis unfortunate…
    Democrat Fowler a cold hearted political disgrace has been exposed.


    Hmm…perhaps the “idiot” Nagin has learned from Katrina. As in learning from his mistakes since he may be taking the Gustav crisis more seriously unlike Katrina.

    What I’d like to know is why in the hell was Nagin re-elected. And to top it off.
    Check this out.

    Secretly recorded by the guy sitting behind him on an airplane?

    You people are creeps. At least he didn’t pray for rain and not rain of Biblical proportions. That was your conservative evangelicals and it looks like the Gulf Coast is going to get it. Time to pray for forgiveness.

    As Obama said on Thursday: “If this is to be an ownership society, it is time for the GOP to start owning its failures.”

    Katrina would be a good place to start.

    So much for “change we can believe in”. This is the type of attitude we will deal with if Obama is elected. The RNC has the class to suspend activities because of Gustav. Now Dems are gloating and saying it’s a “gift from God”. Remember all these gaffes when John McCain is elected and moving into the White House. Shame on you Mr. Fowler – a shameful American

    I Love My Country

    You so need a new name.

    Creeps???? No comment on what Fowler or Moore said??? Talk about bass ackward.

    A conservative evangelical is NOT equal to a former DNC chairman.
    NOT by a long shot. Go ahead and pull the evangelical card.
    I’ll trump it with the Obama mentor Jeremiah Wright card.

    And FYI The demographic in the NOLA area is predominantly democrat. Fowler and Moore spit on their own.
    Their words were cruel and heartless. Secretly taped or not. As in Fowler’s case. He is an idiot to have spouted off like that in front of others. He only has himself to blame.

    “If this is to be an ownership society, it is time for the GOP to start owning its failures.”

    If only..if only.. the Obamamessiah would own up to his dirty past and be honest with America.

    Oh but that would get in the way of his ambition though now wouldn’t it? He couldn’t have that. No matter, there are plenty of us willing to lend him a hand.

    Those of us who really love our country.
    That is.

    Katrina would be a good place to start.

    […]The clear winner is New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who made every conceivable mistake during the crisis. With plenty of warning, he delayed the evacuation order, had no drivers ready to operate the school buses that stood idle, failed to stock the Superdome with food and water, and let the looters rampage without any interference from police. The excuse given for the failure to get buses moving was that the mayor wasn’t able to round up enough drivers. One report said most drivers were women and afraid to make the trip. But a competent mayor would have ordered the drivers to report and provided an armed on-board protector for each bus.


    Get real.

    In Iowa there were no looters. Why is that I wonder.
    I ask rhetorically…

    My message to Obama is
    ‘keep the change’. I do not need it because I am not buying what you are selling.
    The Socialist States of America.
    America does not need Obama. Not now. Not ever.
    To the clueless,
    Change is NOT always a good thing.
    Think about it.
