The reaction to Katrina should have been 85% underway before Washington or Bush was even informed about it. Nagin sat on his sorry ass waiting for someone else to clean up his mess, while his chosen people looted and robbed every store they could find.
The Governoress of the fine state of Louisiana should have been all over this as she has the power of calling out the National Guard, who could have been of great assistance in driving some of those 100+ unused school buses that Nagin forgot about.
Bush's only problem is he let Nagin, the governoress, and the press put him on the defensive, and became reactionary. He should have been on the tube telling everyone that relief would have come sooner had the first reponders - state and local governments - done their duty.
But, Bush did respond will millions of dollars - handing out "cash cards" to residents like penny candy, which they were blowing on strip joints and dope. I guess they thought he was supposed to give them some mad money to play with, and later give them more for a place to live.
I'm sorry if you're starving, but if I give you $1000 bucks and you piss it away, don't come later asking for food.
Katrina was just a golden opportunity for the final coup de gras for Bush by the MSM and the libs. Bush did everything that anyone else would have done, but there is nothing in creation that Bush could ever do to satisfy liberals...or the press.
I won't wish anything bad on the people, but I would really like to have seen how obama would have handled it.

Fear not. You will witness Obama falling flat on his face in a similar or worse crisis. He will be the laughing stock of the world and will have nowhere to hide.
