    Yeah! Right!

    "It's chaos; it's pandemonium out here," said Chris Damon, who had been waiting for 3 1/2 hours at the site and had circled the block five times. "It seems like nobody has any answers."

    Added Damon: "I feel like a victim of Hurricane Katrina. I never thought it could happen here in New York, but it's happened."

    Funny...that seems to be the liberal response. Think of Katrina and what do you think of? New Orleans...a city completely failed by its state and local government. You think of a 'failed' FEMA response that didnt get on the ground for 3, and yet ignore FEMA 'successes' during other administrations where FEMA didnt get on the ground in over 30 days. You ignore the fact that Katrina obliterated entire cities and communities in Mississippi and FEMA was on the scene from day one and instead focus on NOLA.

    Hurricane Katrina's winds and storm surge reached the Mississippi coastline on the afternoon of August 28, 2005,[1][2] beginning a two-day path of destruction through central Mississippi; by 10 a.m. CDT on August 29, 2005, the eye of Katrina began travelling up the entire state, only slowing from hurricane-force winds at Meridian near 7 p.m. and entering Tennessee as a tropical storm.[3] Many coastal towns of Mississippi (and Louisiana) had already been obliterated, in a single night.[4] Hurricane-force winds reached coastal Mississippi by 2 a.m.[1] and lasted over 17 hours, spawning 11 tornadoes (51 in other states[2]) and a 28-foot (9 m) storm surge[2] flooding 6–12 miles (10–19 km) inland. Many, unable to evacuate,[5] survived by climbing to attics or rooftops, or swimming to higher buildings and trees. The worst property damage from Katrina occurred in coastal Mississippi, where all towns flooded over 90% in hours, and waves destroyed many historic buildings, with others gutted to the 3rd story. Afterward, over 235 people died in Mississippi, and all counties in Mississippi were declared disaster areas, 49 for full federal assistance


    FEMA was on the scene immediately with the task of saving the lives of people across 4 states. But...George Bush dont like black people. Hell...you still see zombies on this site claiming FEMA under Bush was a disaster. So...I'm sorry...what were you saying about mindless political responses and the government response never being enough?

    That is PRECISELY what you said...just change the word right and left. Oh...I know...it doesnt fit your paradigm. It is no less true. Your comment IN TOTAL..."Doesn't matter how good the response is, left wingers are going to flail and whine about it anyways."

    Spot on.

    I said that Bush hates black people? How are we supposed to debate when you don't even know what the **** is being said?

    Oh... I see. You must have missed the par where that was the mantra from the left re bush and Katrina (which was the point-it's always about politics never the actual response). I'm glad to know you applaud Bush and FEMAs efforts post Katrina. Most liberals aren't as smart as you.

    I recall the Libbos flailing nine ways from sunday over Katrina. The Response to Sandy has been worse.

    In all fairness, you can't expect a clockwork response with the obstacles that these storms present and the natural inefficiency of the government will constinually deliver the same result. However, the hypocrisy of the Libbos needs to be highlighted.

    Tell us what you were saying in the wake of Katrina? Or, were you just glad that Death Valley wasn't damaged?
