LOL dittos on that. Party on Ray!!!!
MSM report: "Victims of the New Orleans "Tart Cart" school bus evacuation fiasco appeared in Federal Court today ready to pursue their lawsuit against the Federal Government. Represented by a legal "dream" team of John Edwards, Mark Geragos and Thomas Mesereau the suit filed claims that the New Orleans residents had their civil rights violated when onlookers and nameless government officials riding in their own cool SUVs started laughing and taunting them with shouts of "Look at the retards!!!" while riding in some of the New Orleans school systems 'short buses'"
Tom Meserau argued that "The Citizens of New Orleans would have been better off left at home and not publicly embarrassed. President BUSH has got some explaining to do why Greyhounds and other 'tricked out' motor coaches could not be sent to the victims in need. After all, these people's images are on the line here..."
That, is something I wouldn't know. But then again, before the hurricane, no one knew for sure if an evacuation was really necessary. I've been through many hurricanes, where evacuation was recommended, but after, it was found to be not necessary.
I drove a school bus full of kids on a field trip the first time I ever sat in the bus driver's seat.
The plain fact is he had around a thousand buses at his disposal. If there are 10,000 dead people in NO, that's blood on his and that ding-bat Blanco's hands, because the evacuation plan clearly states that those buses are the primary method to be used for evacuation. They failed to follow their own state plan.
I see the humorless thread nannies are furiously pressing Abuse.
I thought it was hilarious.
Instead this dumbass didn't save the buses either and they have to buy their school districts new buses. Capital DUMBASS.
Nagin should be fired. NOW.
Well, Mississippi does need a spot for all its debris.;-)
This trashy POS excuse for a mayor, should not have a job shortly -- still trying to pass the buck for his typically-liberal, disfuctional job performance.
I heard some of the excerpts from that interview -- this man is a disgusting embarrasment to American black people -- just amazing.
I have no knowledge of the plan, but I agree about the SNAFU.
Exactly. There are about 400 city buses there - they could have easily carried 16,000 people (+standees) to safety - and they ARE air-conditioned!
"I'm like - you've got to be kidding me."
Was Nagin really like that? Or was he just somewhat like that? Or maybe he was actually like something else but he just forgot what he was like.
..tell it to Gen. Honore
Thanks for the correction, the man deserves to be credited properly!
He obviously just thought, "Oh well, the federal government will replace them". He didn't (doesn't) care about NO. Not the people, not it's infrastructure, nothing. He was an opportunist, riding the political bandwagon for as long as the ride lasted. He had power and thugery under his rule in the only place that would have had a loser like him.
