Fox News TV | 9/2/2005 | vanity

Posted on 09/02/2005 7:45:53 AM PDT by GoBucks2002

The Congressional Black Caucus press conference is exploding in indignation at the President's lack of response. First, Elijiah Cummings blasted him. Now it is Jesse Jackson Jr's turn.

I especially liked his statement about how who lives and who dies is coming down to the color of their skin.

I'm listening to this too. It is absolutely revolting. It never had to be about race but the Dems made it that way.

Now they're igniting a powder keg across the country.

And JJ Jr was describing the deprived--"those who have one t.v."

I have only one t.v. Does that mean I'm destitute? sheesh.

Cannot blame the black mayor in NO so libs want to blame the president.

This is a complet failure at the city and state levels forcing the Fed's to be involved.


I feel sorry for all the taxes paid for nothing to these people.

President Bush should say that we'll take all of Jesse Jackson's owed back-taxes and put the money toward hurricane relief.

by the way, I notice that CNN barely glanced at the Army Corps of Engineers's presentation and couldn't wait to get back to the Urban League speeches.

Now that the story is no longer about weather, their coverage is disgusting. I'm turning it off. It's making me sick, how these people are deliberately angering people.

I'm not made of money either and I have one TV. I guess some people will take televisions over food. It still doesn't justify stealin.' But libs still make excuses for criminals. The more things change, the more they remain the same.

I almost hit the abuse button but realized it's the black caucus and this crap is to be expected. This actually comes under the heading of a "dog bites man" type story in that it's a completely predictable common occurrence and not news. However, I think dog bites man is an apt analogy in this instance.

Now isn't that the coffee calling the kettle black. The President got back to Washington 3 days after and the Congress got back 4 days after but emergency funding was needed on day 1.

A bunch of bastardly political pandering. Shameful in the extreme, but not unexpected form the likes of these people who prey on the dependence of their own people.

As regards the Nat Guard troops and security, the Governor of the state of Louisiana always had the power to deploy the LA guard in the fashion that other state troops are being deployed today. It is her failure to do so that has prompted the President to get the help from other states.

As regards New Orleans and the Superdome, the Mayor of New Orleans, who ordered all those people into the superdome (and he only did that IMHO after he and the Governor were leaned on by the Bush administration) had the power to bus them out of the city at the same time. The City of New Orleans moves many more children each day on school buses than were in the dome. Those buses were available and slated to be used for school the next day. He could easily have evacuted those people...but did not.

When oredering a mandatory evacuation you use what resources you have to move the people...he did not. If it was important and dangerous enough to order all citizens to leave, it was dangerous enough to help those people to leave. Yet, they did not. After they failed to do so...the busses ended up under water and useless.

In the end, it was FEMA, after the local and state government's failure that had to get the job done...but now under much, much worse and dangerous circumstances.

No, it is not Bush's fault or the fed's fault. We must place blame squarely where it lies at the feet of the local and state executives in Louisiana who had neither the desire or the will to make those calls, irrespective of their political stripe.

Agreed- beyond disgusting. Did you notice how the Black Caucus spoke to 'Christian conservatives' to do something? He quoted the Bible to the President- and will not be criticized for the biblical remarks since he's a black liberal. I am tiring of the blame on the government and subtly on the rest of us for this 'mess' in New Orleans. I hope the President and his team respond at the appropriate time with both fists. And I've been waiting for black leaders to speak to the lawlessness in NO which has made this situation ten times worse and has cost innocent lives. The Black Caucus stood there looking like a bunch of idiots and NOT ONCE did they speak to 'their' people to remain lawful and civil.

I guess they're group-thinking the victims as blacks. This is their M.O. If that is so then the looters, rapists and snipers are also group-thought as black.

Did you hear the comment "and people who only have one television set".

Is this the new criteria for poor in America? Only having one television set?

Let them go in and save people. Let Bush just sit back and say have at it. Their so-called leaders can only complain. As usual, they offer no solutions. I am really starting to hate these people. Maybe they should have taught "their people" to take care of themselves and stop depending on the government.

As I just said on another thread, I had to turn off the morning shows today after hearing the "black leaders" say that if these people were white they would have been out already. I hope these "leaders" get a special punishment some day. They are disgusting.

I saw it also, and I was appalled.

As I told my sister, why don't they ask the local and state leaders why they didn't have a plan in place. Instead, we get weeping, and and pointing fingers at anyone but themselves.

By their actions...they make Orleans into a 3rd world region. Its not compariable to Miami or Charleston or Tampa. Its a land that really has alot of issues which the American public has never grasped. When one tells you to leave an area because your life is in danger...and you stay...just how big a fool are you? And to have national idiots on TV defending your actions...makes it even more of a joke.
