Sen. Mary Landrieu threatened the president of the United States with physical violence on Sunday, saying that if he or any other government official criticizes New Orleans police for failing to keep civil order in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina - "I might likely have to punch him - literally."
"If one person criticizes [our sheriffs], or says one more thing, including the president of the United States, he will hear from me - one more word about it after this show airs and I - I might likely have to punch him - literally," Landrieu railed on "ABC's "This Week."
It is illegal to threaten the president with physical violence.
The Louisiana Democrat blasted Bush for neglecting the New Orleans levees, and demanded that he stop using the disaster for "photo-ops."
"The president came here yesterday for a photo-op," Landrieu charged, while surveying the disaster scene via helicopter with "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos in tow. "He got his photo-op but we are never going to get this fixed if he does not send us help now."
Landrieu also blamed Bush for cutting funding for levee improvement, before bursting into tears on camera.
In recent days, Louisiana officials have been criticized for bungling evacuation and rescue efforts. One of those officials, Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu, is Sen. Landrieu's brother.
That's it. Put this worthless beotch in jail.
Shut up, slut.
She might do better to punch governor of her state.
A Don't-blame-me Crybaby. Not exactly Churchill.
Sounds like a good job for the Secret Service. Of course the MSM would have afield day if they actually did arrest or even detain her.
Yes. If possible, jail the skank. We don't need this crap right now.
How many people could your photo-op helicopter have moved to safety, Mary...5-10, 20...?
A national leader, senator, crying on TV, will reinforce the perception that a female isn't up to the top spot..running the country...and Blanco's total melt-down this week ads to that..Sorry Hillary...
Don't go - Bush gets blasted. Goes - Bush gets Blasted.
Don't step in - Bush failed to act. Does - He's grabbing power.
Typical lib pap for the weak minded in America.
The same ones who were too busy looting to be bothered with keeping civil order?
Now she is threatening the President. FBI take note!
She sounds like the rest of her constituents, guess they learned well right from the top.
Homeland security is saying that they have the responsibility
to feed clothe educate and house thousands to a million people without disrupting the lives of others. Tooo late.
I cant believe the lengths the MSM and their co-conspirators have gone in the blame game..
I think there is plenty of room for her in the New Orleans jailhouse.
She also said last night on Fox News that they would rebuild, because the spirit of the people of New Orleans was "TITANIC!" Also, that it was a fluid situation.
Bush should let her punch him. Great photo op.
Then throw her butt in jail.
Honest analysis of what we an learn from Katrina is very important. However, political yakking and finger-pointing are counter-productive, and any politician who attempts to take political advantage of this should be thrown out of office fast.
The liberal beotch is full of shiznit. She ought to be looking in the mirror if she needs somebody to punch.
These democrats are all out of their minds. (I know,.... so what else is new?)
