    The likely scenario is someone in the appropriate department (god I don't even know which that would be) looked at the idea and said "What? No, that's a stupid idea and you're a stupid person" and threw it in the trash.



    This is kinda a strawman. One that the obvious answer is "who does the buck stop with"?

    Most were smarter than the politicians paid to answer such questions. They left before the evacuation was made mandatory. Had the politicians not sat on their thumbs for so long...

    IF that is your position then what the hell was ANYONES beef regarding Bush's response in NOLA? What was he supposed to do...piggy back them out and put him in a tent on the ol ranch?

    One MIGHT think that the NOLA and La officials might have used that 12 million dollars in federal disaster preparedness money to actually develop a PLAN. After all...you will remember the mayor and his staff seemed to be able to bug out just fine.

    And I seem to recall a yard full of something like 6-700 school buses...

    Seriously though. If this is not the ghosts of Katrina, you all have lost your mind. Jindal is at his wits end waiting for federal permission to build barrier islands that he's willing to risk jail time...


    Why is Obama not responding to this?
    I think the problem is it would require another No-Bid Contract to a certain company loved by Libs. (and because he and his crew are largely clueless)

    I think Obi's trying to find out if the French, Haitians, Uzbeks, Tibetan Monks, Russian Oligarchs, Kanuckistani's, or Venezualans can do it... anybody but the H-word.

    He's still in hot water for the last No-Bid.

    Again. funny how hypocritical some are.
    so, you finally realize that having a bunch of buses wasn't the solution
    gotta have a destination to take those who are seeking to leave
    gotta have the means to do so
    and you question why nagins didn't have such means
    in contrast, we have jindal who has a plan, but he awaits permission to do what he thinks needs to be done
    that is not leadership
    that is being a toady republican

    you also might think that the corps of engineers, responsible for establishing and maintaining the levee system, would actually build and maintain one that was designed to do the job

    Yeah...THATS the stuff your city is supposed to have coordinated. thats why the city officials and disaster prep guys get paid...

    So basically instead of just saying go hang out at the superdome...and good luck y'all...Ima be chillin in Houston...maybe Chocolate Mayor Nagin should have heeded the evac orders two days earlier and started the caravans to higher ground.

    Look at what you are writing...

    "Golly...what could Nagin and Blanco POSSIBLY have done to protect their people?" and then in virtually the same breath...Governor Jindahl should be building Islands dammit!

    which...BTW...I agree with...Jindahl SHOULD be building the islands...(and tell the fed to kiss his and his states ass). I just also happen to blame Nagin and Blanco for the NOLA mess.

    He is waiting for what should be a swift reply from Obi.
    Problem is, Obi's crew is a bunch of lawyers most likely trying to find out how they can bring Jindal down.

    Jindal said he'd act and go to jail. That ain't toady.
    It's poetry.

    It tells the world what Americans have come to learn in the past months and what many R's knew from the start... that Obi is incompetent.

    In way over his head.
    Our enemies must be watching this and howling with laughter at President Urkel... our Boy Wonder.

    You really need to pay attention.


    There was a plan, there were buses. Naggins failed on all levels.


    You partisan hack, like others, base your feigned outrage on party, not reality.

    How about Destination: GTFO?

    I mean seriously, these aren't very difficult questions. Coordinating transportation isn't rocket science.
