Charlotte Hays

"Loose Canon is amazed that a tsunami killing thousands of people can be turned into just another propaganda tool by those who sincerely despise George W. Bush and the United States. They never change their tune."
Ms. Hays, statements like this one undermine your credibility tremendously. You and your conservative brothers and sisters need to stop the self pity and take responsibility for the power you possess. Your movement is the most powerful force on the planet right now. The world is what you make it.
And, I'll add, if conservatives ever do as much good as all the derided liberal policies of the past, then I'll be pleasantly surprised. Time will tell and history will judge.
Why Do Liberals Always Hurt the Ones They (Claim to) Love?January 4, 2005 5:20 p.m."In her new book, 'Do-Gooders: How Liberals Hurt Those They Claim to Help (And the Rest of Us)' - released today - Mona Charen holds the Left accountable for their grand claims of magnanimity. The book, as she tells it in the introduction, 'is a chronicle of failure - the failure of liberals to help those they set out to help.' And in her scorekeeping, Charen has a constructive end in mind: 'a moral challenge. She writes, 'Liberals must be called to account for the real havoc they have created in so many lives. They must be asked to offer something more than good intentions when their actions lead to disaster.'"
Oh, it must take so much courage to blame liberals!
