Like the LA Gov who resisted asking for Federal Aid and then blamed Bush for not violating the posse Comitatus Act.
Interesting that the Democrat Pres was lauded for cooperative efforts by the Republican Gov but the Republican pres was condemned by the Dem Gov.
Almost makes you think that the Dems play politics while the Reps work in the real world...
I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

I believe that I can safely say that I can't show you that.Better still, can you show me where I condemned bull**** political attacks on Bush after Katrina? Here's the scoop...I disagreed with many of Bush's actions as President, the same as I disagree with many of Obama's actions as President. I however took each event as it came, not basing my opinion on rhetoric or party line opinion. My point is every event does NOT play out the same and for you to say you know my stance on a topic based on party line assumptions is ridiculous.
P.S. - Whether this situation was handled well/poorly for political reasons is not really the question at hand. I view the whole interaction as a positive and would like to see this kind of teamwork across the political spectrum (even with inevitable hidden agendas)
