General Honore shooting down a hand-wringing reporter: "You need to get on the streets of New Orleans. You can't sit back here and repeat what you heard from someone else."
Reporter babe mumbles something about safety ...
General Honore: "Have you been to New Orleans?" (mumbled "yes") "Did anybody accost you?" (mumbled "no") "Okay ... then why the hell are trying to make that the issue. If you can help, try and help."
Reporter: "Can you clarify--"
Chertoff: (laughing) "I think that was pretty clear."
I would pay money to see that show!! Or, let Chrissy Mathews invite him to whiffle-ball :-)
That was just as fuuny.
Honest to God, I have seen thousands of speeches inmy life and I have NEVER seen an ofical walk off the stage to go back to work when another speaker was still speaking, especially a high ranking official.
Then, the "we're going where he's going" act topped that.
A once in a lifetime event--save that to disk!
I believe he said 'God bless you' as he saluted and strode off. Very dignified.
Gen. Patton has a worthy descendant, IMHO.
A friend sent me the CNN video of the press conference where 'John Wayne' Honore takes charge of the press.

I think it is amazing that the feds were able to get in there as fast as they did. The size of the undertaking is enormous.
If a lineman misses his block and the quarterback gets sacked, is it the quarteback's fault? If this happens a few times in a row and the quarterback fumbles, gives up the ball on his own one yard line and the other team brings in their offense and scores, do we blame the defense?
Everyone has a job to do: city, state, and feds. City and state missed the blocks, got sacked a few times and fumbled. Blame the feds.
