You know, this is the biggest non-issue that ever got blown to these proportions.
The Federal Government has no authority to step in unless requested by the State. FEMA was right on it just as soon as that happened.
The people of LA should fire their useless Governor, and replace their Mayor in N.O.

THEY are the incompetent ones!

Cordially,
GE

I guess those people in government in LA. think that its the White House's job to keep them safe, while their people are dirt poor and they live in mansions....

Somehow people around America has to understand, our States are there to take care of things and bottom line, its up to all of us to take care of ourselves.....

I can easily tell how skewed the poll is:

Ray Nagin , Christine Blanco & Mary Landrieau aren't even listed as Reasons for the relief hold-ups.

Biased poll is missing the correct answer, which is State and Local Government.

I've now listened to two radio newsbreaks calling Bush a liar, claiming that he actually knew about the levee break a day ahead of his actual claim. This isn't even what Brown said. While he claims to have emailed the "WH" about the levee break, Bush wasn't even at the WH...so we don't even know if he was told. Yet, the media is quoting residents as Bush being a liar based on this testimony.

Regardless of this, it was still Terry Ebbert (NO's HS Director) who was informing people that the levee break was a "slow-rise" and that "he" would have it under control in a "few hours." Quote:

"It's a very slow rise, and it will remain so until we plug that breach. I think we can get it stabilized in a few hours," Terry Ebbert, New Orleans' homeland security chief told The Associated Press.

Officials are planning to use twin-rotored army helicopters to drop 1,360-kilogram sandbags on the breach to stop the flow of water, which would normally have been evacuated by a network of pumps."

In other words, even if Bush did know, he was obviously under the impression that the state officials were dealing with this problem. Heck, it was on this same day the Ebbert was quoted as saying Brown was doing a wonderful job.

The poll doesn't have Governor Blanco's name - she was MORE than responsible for the chaos that happened before and what followed Katrina.

The White House could only do what the law specified as to states rights and were far too politically correct to keep from embarrassing Blanco. The Blanco signals were all about her rights. Politics about the unused trailers is next. IMHO Michael Browne got buffeted by the Politics of Katrina until it was too late at which point ‘help’ could only get into some of New Orleans. Meanwhile, other cities and towns in Katrina’s path got along fairly well in the face of such a disaster.

No matter how President Bush handled the situation, he can’t win because of the MSM and politics of the loony left. I think he has done very well considering what he is up against. Tip: don’t be such a gentleman next time GW!

"It is extremely disappointing that the White House did not mobilize to help the people who were not able to get out."

"It is extremely disappointing that the Mayor's office did not mobilize to help the people who were not able to get out."

"It is extremely disappointing that the Governor's did not mobilize to help the people who were not able to get out."

What an assinine question. Time of the Federal response is secondary at best. We Floridians know that it's the lack of local and state response that cost lives.

None of the options lets you choose the local officials. That is where the blame lies.
