AND THAT'S NOT ALL .....
Neal's Nuze ^ | Sept 19, 2005 | Neal Boortz

Posted on 09/19/2005 6:47:22 AM PDT by yankeedame

AND THAT'S NOT ALL .....

Let's see ... what else have we learned in the past week about the response to Katrina.

Doctors from across the United States poured into Louisiana to offer their services in shelters and hospitals treating Katrina's victims. They could do nothing. They just sat. You see, they weren't licensed to practice medicine in Louisiana. It took the amazing Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, five days to sign a waiver to allow these doctors to practice medicine in Louisiana. Five days, while people were suffering and dying. Don't blame Blanco, though. It was clearly Bush's fault.


New Orleans' Mayor Ray Nagin

On the Saturday before the hurricane New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin received a call from Amtrak. There was a passenger train sitting in the New Orleans station with 900 empty seats. Did the Mayor want to put some evacuees in those seats? No thanks. The train left nearly empty. You cannot blame Mayor Nagin for this decision, that clearly would be racist. It just has to be Bush's fault.

In 1997 the U.S. Congress appropriated $500,000 of your money -- not federal money, taxpayer's money -- to the State of Louisiana. The money was set aside to create a "comprehensive analysis and plan of all evacuation alternatives for New Orleans." Now correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the big deal here, isn't it? New Orleans didn't get evacuated, right? Well, for two years nothing happened. Then the Congress demanded of Louisiana a plan for evacuation in the event of a category 3 story, a levee break, a flood or some other natural disaster. The $500,000 of your money got to Louisiana .. but then what? It was spent by the Greater New Orleans Expressway Commission, not on an evacuation plan, but things that needed to be done to the Lake Pontchartrain causeway over the next fifteen years or so. What does the incredible Louisiana Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness have to say about the funds and the causeway study? The spokesman says that they can't find any information. Actually, we shouldn't be holding the Louisiana emergency preparedness folks or the state responsible for this ... not when we all know it was Bush's fault.

Speaking of flood control. You did know, didn't you, that in 1996 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was going to raise and strengthen the very levees that failed in New Orleans. They were going to, but they didn't. And why not? Because of a lawsuit, that's why. The plaintiff in the lawsuit didn't want the work done until extensive and expensive environmental impact statements were prepared by the Corps of Engineers and approved by the EPA. And who filed that lawsuit? Why .. it was the Sierra Club. The very same Sierra Club, by the way, that listened with rapt attention in San Francisco on September 9th while Al Gore told them that the leaders of this country ought to be held accountable for the flooding in New Orleans. Now, some of us might be so twisted as to think that the very Sierra Club that was so enthralled by Gore's rantings should bear some of the blame here ... but that's only because we just don't realize that it was all Bush's fault. Oh .. and by the way. Why haven't we heard more about this Sierra Club lawsuit in the mainstream media? Remember the template.

Mayor Ray Nagin is inviting residents of some areas of New Orleans to come back to their homes and businesses and begin the cleanup process. There's another possible hurricane bearing down on the Florida Keys --- a tropical storm that could become a hurricane and could head toward New Orleans. Now it's possible that if over 100,000 residents return to New Orleans and are further victimized by another hurricane and another flood .. will it be Mayor Ray Nagin's fault? Of course not, you idiot! It will be George Bush's fault! Haven't you been paying attention?

Last week I asked Tony Snow to look into this.

It came to mind when I noted that Senator Frist was allowed in to practice medicine while the other doctors were kept out for day.

Maybe Frist wasn't allowed. Maybe he said, "Stop me." Frist is a highly dedicated doctor. He once gave roadside assistance.

"We taxpayers will be footing the bill (plus interest)."

Tax money doesn't raise the dead, however. How many died because doctors didn't have that waiver for five days? It's got that 'fresh new scent' of death, to me.

Here's a not-to-common moment: me backing up Boortz.

A word of advice to those lawyers: leave the doctors alone. Frist isn't the only MD in the Senate right now. They'd ream those lawyers out if they mess with the docs.

While I agree with you on the money, I disagree on the importance of who wins the blame game. Normally, it wouldn't matter to me WHO did or didn't do something, but this tragedy has been sickly twisted into a blamefest by the left.

And their hoping we're going to get fatigued.

In the process, a lot of people are still going to suffer down in Louisiana to support this agenda. They'll be sacrificed, if we let this go.

If we let this slide, they WILL do it again. And again.

Great point! Yes, they need to be licensed to practice in Louisiana.

I'll bet Blanco signed that waiver in less than 5 days!

IMO, Boortz is smart enough to compensate for an anti-Christian soul. That takes a ton of brain power, to see through the leftist lies while not taking religion seriously. He can even see through his own party's BS at times. Few achieve that level. When Boortz is in agreement with the Right, watch out. Powerful combination.

Q: Have there been political problems with a Democrat administration at the state and local level dealing with a Republican national administration?

A: I'd like to think not, but what happened on the political side (happened) on the national level, not at our level. It happened with what I call the political talking heads (on TV). Certainly, some decided to jump on the president because there was a slow federal response. So they beat up on him for a day or so. ... And so, his people didn't like his taking a beating, so they turned the political talking heads on the governor, and then they turned them on (New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin).

We all had our turn getting beat up. You know, I didn't have time for that. We were saving lives. We were about that mission of saving lives, as many lives as we could. The reports on how many people we lost are dramatically less than what was always predicted. So, we saved a mighty lot of lives. Frankly, I just didn't have time for all those political shenanigans. I don't think President Bush was denying us any help. I think he wanted more than anything to have his agency delivering the services in a timely fashion and delivering to us what we needed. There are a lot of good people at FEMA that wanted the same thing to happen. Actually, in the end, it became this big bureaucracy that couldn't move quickly. It could not adjust and do a rapid response for us. I don't know why, but we are going to be looking at all of that.
