Watching this debacle in New Orleans and the decades of corruption and incompetence by Democrats may be the reason Bill Clinton did not criticize GW Bush. He knew New Orleans Croneyism, and corruption was a disaster waiting to happen. That the dependency culture and preoccupation that the Government would take care of you contributed to this tragedy as much as the levees giving way.
Destruction of the Family, removal of Fathers,a culture of entitlement and excuse of criminal misconduct and the thug culture has brought us the shame so evident in the Superdome and Convention Center. Extreme Poverty is no excuse as we have not seen this kind of behavior in Indonesia or Sri Lanka after the Tsunami last December 26th.
How dare the prejorative liar and corrupt incompetent Mayor Nagin blame his failures and that of his city on President Bush. FEMA was too slow to act. But you cannot tell me that the State of Louisana cannot have a Bond Election to raise the money to make the needed repairs or reenforcement? Sorry no pass from me. If the Feds will not do it stopping blaming them and take some ADULT RESPONSIBILITY for a change.
Democratic Liberal policy Laboratory for failure Detroit Michigan, 12000 abandoned homes and 45% Adult Illiteracy. Democratic Liberal policy Lab for failure in a Natural Disaster New Orleans. Were criminals are turned loose on the unarmed public by the Gun Control crowd. And 1000 out of 1500 of the Police are AWOL. Contrast the NYPD and FDNY with their counterparts in New Orleans. No Emergency plan implemented. After 911 no upgrade in communications.
No prepositioned emergency,rescue supplies, water filitration, fuel, or generators. No Fire Reserves, No Emergency Response plan practiced, command and control failure. No evacuation planning implemented. Failure, Failure, and more Failure by State and Local Officials.
Governor Blanco in a daze, crying, totally out to lunch and clueless on how to go forward. Next Door Gov. Hailey Barbour implemented his plans called up the guard, requested mutual aid, requested immediate Federal Assistance. Minimal looting.
So you have the usual Race Pimps, and Race Guilt Manipulators demanding more Government programs that created this mess in the first place. Brain Dead idiots without a clue playing the same broken record. Its Whitey's Fault. Who was in charge in New Orleans? My words to the Black Congressional Cacus STFU until you idiots can contribute something constructive to change the mess you helped to create in the first place.
Excellent and correct summary!
