Looks like Blanco was out to destroy New Orleans for political gain:-) Surprize!!!
With apologies to my good friend Russ Honore, this is not about business. Its about kickbacks, and there simply were not enough to satisfy Blanco and her gang of crooks.
Russ, of course, knows this; but he’s too much of a gentleman to publicly acknowledge the gross corruption that runs amok in his beloved state of Louisiana.
I remember Honore and how much I loved his no nonsense approach. I am sure he is telling the truth, even though she conveniently forgets the conversation with him.
“Blanco said she could not remember the conversation with Honore.”
I call BS. There’s no way anyone could forget a conversation with that man.
Blanko written her book yet?
Well, there was his mistake right there at the beginning. As Barbara Boxer showed us, they stop listening after the word "Ma'am."
Never let a good crises go to waste.
After Dubya declared that area in a state of emergency, Blanco blocked FEMA assistance right up until the hurricane came ashore, them the DNC screamed to high heaven that Bush wasn't in there to help them.
They sacrificed their own constituents. That was one of the scummiest lowlife moves I've ever seen in my lifetime.
At least the LA residents were able to recognize what a tool Blanco was, and got rid of her. I wish I could say that about many other states.
