    I was expecting this poll to be a choice between Bush, then-governor Kathleen Blanco, and Ray Nagin. My response to that would have been "all of the above."

    How can Obama be a choice here if he wasn't even the president then?

    Poor poll choices.
    Kathleen Blanco, and Ray Nagin both had responsibility for what went down.
    Nagin, for poor preparation, and Blanco for her inability to make decisions.
    I was in Baton Rouge the shortly after the storm, the National Guard was there
    waiting to be asked to go in.

    Is this because of the Louisiana PPP poll?

    Are you really this desperate to bash Bush and victimize Obama? You people act like Katrina only hit New Orleans.

    The Mayor and Governor.

    They delayed letting FEMA in until it was too late. The Mayor made things worse via total incompetence in preparation.

    Since Barack Obama has magical powers to solve problems that he withholds from us because its more fun to watch us squirm . . probably Obama.

    I wonder what it would take to sway the undecided in that poll.
    I may be wrong.

    bash and victimize? It's all good fun and jokes for an Arkansan.*

    You know who else besides you has no sense of humor? Liberals.

    Oh wait, I see you're from LA. No wonder your hackles came up. No offense. Nothing personal. Just ribbin' vous. Jus' jokes. Zat's all.
