    Sure...throw that in the mix. The had decades and plenty of money. So the corps failed...the city officials failed MASSIVELY and the governor did nothing, but libs stand by the "it was all Bush's fault" line. You GET the stupidity behind that kind of rhetoric...right?

    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.
    yes, a mayor is supposed insist other cities and states agree to accept and provide for his poor citizens as they flee a storm
    stunning that you would believe this is within a mayor's authority

    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.

    it's toady
    rather than say he is willing to go to jail for doing the right thing
    maybe he should instead just do the right thing

    so, you get the fleeing residents on the buses and what then

    The moral of the Hurricane Katrina story?
    Socialism Kills those it claims to help. See article below.

    I love the line that every time you have the government wanting to help people, just insert screw and you've got an accurate read of what will occur.

    Moral poverty cost blacks in New Orleans

    Say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you live in. Two questions:

    1. What would you do?

    2. What would you do if you were black?

    Sadly, the two questions don't have the same answer.

    For better or worse, Hurricane Katrina has told us the answer to the second question. If you're black and a hurricane is about to destroy your city, then you'll probably wait for the government to save you.

    This was not always the case. Prior to 40 years ago, such a pathetic performance by the black community in a time of crisis would have been inconceivable. The first response would have come from black men. They would take care of their families, bring them to safety, and then help the rest of the community. Then local government would come in.

    No longer. When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed behind and waited for the government to bail them out. This, as we know, did not turn out good results.

    How about out of the city? Read the freaking plan. They had a plan, they failed in it's execution which created the FEMA mess...


    Here you have a presdent who has not resonded for 36 days to Jindal's request and you make excuses for Obama?


    Hypocrite much?

    A mayor is SUPPOSED to have that ALL coordinated in advance. YES. Do you not understand ANYTHING about disaster preparedness?

    You are a laugh riot. You are so typical it is pathetic. You are COMPLETELY devoid of the ability to say...yeah...you know what...the leaders of those communities MASSIVELY screwed the pooch.

    Instead you cling to...it was all Bush's fault...and AFTER the mess...he should have swooped in and rescued everyone...like...HE should have had a plan...even though you have NO expectation of the DEMOCRATS (AH...so THAT explains it...) of actually having a plan...maybe having made a few phone calls to house folks in armories in the capital or other more northerly cities...college campus fieldhouses...etc...you know...like the Governor and mayors of coastal Mississippi towns did.

    Houston? Atlanta? Anywhere but NO? If you were paying attention at the time, mayors weren't locking the gates their respective cities, but rolling out the red carpet.

    Like officials in Houston, Atlanta's civic leaders put out the welcome mat for people displaced by Katrina. Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin publicly welcomed them. Government and charity agencies in the metropolitan area worked to ease their transition.

    Franklin says she invited evacuees because "but for the grace of God, there go I."

    "People have always come here," says Franklin, a Philadelphia native. "It seemed to me that the people moving from the Gulf Coast were no different than many of us who move here. Many of them were working people, they were talented people. They wanted another chance. Atlanta's a city that's growing anyway. Why not invite them here?"

    You DO get that MOST of the residents of New orleans got out on their OWN...and made their OWN arrangements for those bug out locations.

    This is just sad. I swear...sometimes I read comments on here from liberal minded posters and I SWEAR they are conservative trolls INTENTIONALLY looking stupid to smear other liberals. I hope thats the case with you.
