CBS Presents Former Mayor Nagin as an 'Expert'on Eve of Hurricane

On Friday's Early Show, CBS somehow thought it was appropriate to bring on former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to offer "lessons learned from other hurricanes," as Hurricane Irene bore down on the East Coast. Anchor Chris Wragge not only failed to ask Nagin about his failures in leadership in the lead-up to Hurricane Katrina, but also twice labeled his guest an "expert in the field".

Well, I guess Nagin will be on ABC, NBC, and CNN too. He`s already been on MSNBC.

New Orleans police cruisers were found parked in Houston after Katrina. Will we see NYC police cruisers abandoned in Akron after Irene?

We all know that the key Marxist goals are to take over
Media and education.
Our national TV networks were prime targets.
We now have:

CBS = See BS
NBC = National Bull Chit, or Nothing But Chit
ABC = Always Bull Chit, or American Bull Chit

Of course, we all know PMSNBC and the Commie News Network

From the good ol' boys in the Blue Collar Commedy Tour, I can't help but think of the following:

"Now I don't care who your are, that's funny;" and

"Here's you sign:" and

Git er done!"

Only the delusional, biased, far left, State Run Media would even entertain the idea of reaching out to this clueless, inept, failure of a Moonbat who for comment on a Hurricane.

Hey Ray, got any "School Buses" you can spare???

F'N MOROON!!!

Nagin is trying to plug his book — but it’s “self-published,” which means he couldn’t sell it and had to pay printing costs himself.

Total loser.

His first excuse for not using buses to get people out was "You can hardly get the drivers to show up on a rainy day", this is actual fact, recorded.

About the only thing they missed doing was having idiot Rat ex-governor Blanco up there as assistant *expert*.

Hey cut Ray some slack. It was Bush's fault that Bush didn't call and tell him what he was suppose to do as mayor. The hurricane was Bush's fault because he wouldn't give any money to climate research, and the levees breaking was Bush's fault since he knew decades before that the Army Corps(e) of Engineers didn't build the levers right to begin with so the Democrats could pocket profits for shoddy materials and work. How was someone who was trying to create a black utopia suppose to know that a bunch of crackers in Florida were actually telling the truth about how strong it could be. Ray was waiting to hear from Al Roker who plays a meteorologist on television.

nagin, the New Orleans Mayor. He left NOLA for Baton Rouge.
During the aftermath, he was sitting in a high dollar hotel room watching his city on the tv in the ac with plenty of creature comforts. Meanwhile, Governor blanco sat on her hands and blamed all their problems on George Bush.

The dims have sucessfully politicized hurricanes. If you are in a state with dim leaders and a repub in the white house, you are screwed. If you are in a state with dim leaders and a dim president, help is on the way mucho pronto.

The US govt is forbidden by law to act until the governer of the state formally requests assistance. After Hurricane Andrew in ‘92 Gov. Chiles of Florida was contacted before the storm’s landfall by then President George HW Bush. Chiles ignored him. Chiles let a week go by after the storm before he formally requested federal assistance. Meanwhile the dimocrat media bashed Bush for his “indifference” for all the poor suffering people of Homestead Florida. After 5 days of the Party’s media showing Bush on his boat in Maine and the Floridians suffering did Chiles request the help. So a Dimrat governer let his states people suffer in order to score political points. The dims put Bush in a position where he either had to break federal law and face an onslaught of lawsuits or sit and wait on Chiles to ask for the help.

That turned out to be one of the weapons the party and their media used to defeat Bush.

Then they used the same tactic with Katrina. You would think that Bush the junior would have learned the lesson from his dad’s experience.

She sat on her hands, because that's what DNC Headquarters told her to do.
