If further assistance is needed, then they call Obama for it. See how that works? This is not about a 300,000 person city by the way. The flooding is restricted to small areas. Should they be protected? yes. Do we need to mobilize FEMA, not yet.
    I bet you weren't saying that back in '05...

    Friggin' hillarious!

    I will bet that you were, at best, critical of GWB and FEMA.

    What is your opinion of how GWB and FEMA handled Katrina?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    FEMA did what it was supposed to do, about as well as it could be expected to do it, given the size and scope of the disaster. The vast majority of the emergency management failures were at the state and local level.

    Also what makes you think Obama should get involved in routine flooding, which is much different than a massive hurricane hitting one of our biggest ports?

    Yes, I'd say so.

    Were you or were you not critical of GWB and FEMA regarding Katrina?

    I was critical of Bush and I was critical of the state and local. Failures happened on all levels. Now your turn to answer.
