"I would like to commend both Governor Blanco and all of the local leaders who have done a tremendous job helping the people of Louisiana prepare for Hurricane Katrina." - Landrieu Says State is Prepared For Katrina - 8-28-05



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 28, 2005

Sen. Landrieu Statement on Hurrican Katrina

WASHINGTON -- United States Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., issued the following statement from the Hurricane Command Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

"I would like to commend both Governor Blanco and all of the local leaders who have done a tremendous job helping the people of Louisiana prepare for Hurricane Katrina. Unfortunately, the reverberations of this storm will be felt not only in Louisiana but across the nation.

"Our port system provides the nation with the transportation needs for our country's economy and commerce while our coastline provides the energy for our homes and industries. And Louisiana's unique wetlands provide our state with a buffer zone from natural disasters such as hurricanes. But our wetlands have been eroding. As I have said before, in order for us to protect America's energy supply and transportation needs, the federal government must join with the people of Louisiana to preserve America's wetlands. "But as we have not weathered all of Katrina yet, we ask the American people to keep us in their thoughts and prayers at this time."

If that's what you believe Senator then you are incapable of using even the outside facilities much less the thunder mug without getting it all over your hands in in your drawers.

I love how "Hurrican" is misspelled in the title.

Oh, and the link hasn't been excised from the web page. Anybody want to cache this?

No wonder she was in full Moonbat this morning.

I am ordering everyone to evacuate the city. If you are elderlu, sick, or unable to walk to a shelter, please bring your own schoolbus. Ours are worth too much money to risk damaging them.

Whoa. Good find! Busted.

Gee, if she thinks this was good preparation, then Landrieu must just be thrilled with the Feds' response...

Did I miss something? Although the headline says the state is prepared, I don't see the senator actually saying that. Just like a 'Rat, plausible deniability...

Oh, yes. New Orleans was prepared alright. They even had a Plan.

The Plan was "Every man for himself". And then of course there was the "Screw the poor without resources" section of The Plan.

Think of it a different way...does Landrieu call prepared failing to effectively mobilize and feed thousands and thousands, most of whom are black, poor, elderly, sick, etc.?

Let's see. Landrieu is a Senator because Bill Clinton ordered the NO democratic machine to get off it's ass and manufacture votes at the last minute.

Oops. Just another corrupt bought and payed for Louisiana politician backscratching her likewise corrupt incometent mates in state govt.

"...the federal government must join with the people of Louisiana to preserve America's wetlands."

I don't suppose there's a single brainy liberal anywhere who can appreciate the irony of that statement.

But I certainly do...

LMAO!!! This incompetent scumbag Landrieu was more concerned about her allies in the enviro-whacko lobby than she was about the impending hurricane! In any event, her wetlands were preserved, that's for sure.

This is an attempt to prop up the corrupt democratic machine politics of Lousiana of which Landrieu is a part. Keep those people voting democrat is the only important thing.

Which, of course, begs the question as to whether or not New Orleans, in its current soggy condition, now qualifies as a "wetland."

Given the state of current enviro-nazi law, my bet is that it does.

The following excerpt from August 29 NPR radio on how her (Gov. Blanco) administration reacted to Hurricane Katrina.

NPR: Does this mean the emergency plans are working? Maybe we should go over what the plans were?

Blanco: We have to hold tight, let it happen then pick up the pieces after it's all over.

If this was Bush he'd be labled a Bigot, Insensitive, Incompetent and Unprepared.

Jindal is covering his own hide, he thinks, by blaming everyone except himself for this disaster. My estimation of him toppled as a result. Though he would have been more competant than Blanco by a long shot, he's clearly just another politician.

Someone needs to take to the Senate Floor and wave this in mary's face.

NO is now a wetland and must forever be maintained in it's present pristine condition for the sake of endangered endangered species of mold, mildew and skeeters found only in these waters and unable to survive anywhere else.

Yes is a politician. But, does not sound like a smart one.

If he wants to take on Blanco in the next gubernatorial race, this is the best time to be in action and support the relief efforts.

Oh well.

Good find, too! And for a cat 4 hurricane, yet. I understand Blanco didn't even stick around, but high-tailed it to safety.
