The Democrats, who had been able to portray Republicans for their poor response to Hurricane Katrina, may be in a world of hurt as former Chairman of the DNC Don Fowler seemed to find delight in the fact that Hurricane Gustav is heading towards New Orleans on the day that the GOP is set to start their National Convention and formally elect John McCain their candidate for the general election.
Fowler, who was Charmain of the Democratic National Committee from 1995-1997, stated on camera
"The hurricane’s going to hit New Orleans about the time they start. [Chuckle] The timing is — at least it appears now that it’ll be there Monday. That just demonstrates that God’s on our side. [Laughter] Everything’s cool."
Hurricane Gustav is currently a category 4 Hurricane with winds as high as 140 miles per hour being currently reported. The path is heading towards Louisiana and many fear the same type of disaster that happened in 2005 which ravaged the city of New Orleans because cities poor levies and the fact that the city sits below sea level.
Needless to say, the vast majority of the electorate probably won't take pleasure at a party looking for political gain from a national disaster that has the potential to be deadly for many in its path.
