The democrat party and their official communication bureau -the MSM - are together in this trying to blame the President and FEMA because the failures were entirely those of the Governor of LA (a democrat), the Mayor of NO (a black democrat - double whammy there), the NO City government (black and democrat) and the NOPD. This is bare-knuckle politics at its most vile, and we here need to do all we can to communicate this to the country.
I was in NO on the Saturday before Katrina hit, watched the television coverage at length, and got out by late Saturday morning, knowing what was to happen. It was evident to me that neither the mayor or governor had the "necessities" to get the job done, and that NO was in big trouble. In my opinion, rebuilding NO must include rebuilding the political structure, meaning ousting the mayor, the City Council, the Chief of the NOPD, the NOPD itself, the givernor, the US senators, and all democrat-controlled organizations in the state. The democrats are not up to running things well, it's time to let the adults take over. This is a golden opportunity to take a Red state back.
