    Did anyone ask him if he agreed with Hagee's position that it was God's retribution?

    He can't answer that. He says that he doesn't always agree with all his supporters point of view. Just get me the votes.

    Makes sense to me. I sure hope Obama doesn't agree with Wright's point of view.

    Yeah you are right Gunny. I mean the Gov't was within their right to just sit back and say fuck new orleans because the Governor screwed up. Why should the Govt jump in after days of obvious non-action taking place. I mean who ever heard of someone taking control of the problem when they see something gone wrong.

    Wake up. It's common sense. Regardless of the law, the govt knew that shit was fucked up in New Orleans, and their response still sucked. It's like they sat back and said...pffft, we have no responsiblity in this. People are dying but so what, the law says its not our responsibility. I call BS. The Govt gets involved in Steroid cases right away, but when New Orleans gets flooded, who gives a shit..not our problem Why ? Because its predominately black of course.

    What ignorant pap. What we would be hearing now if Bush or the federal Government had acted without the Governors permission is that Bush is a despot and seized State power in a bid to take over.

    The Army can not act unilaterally. They must be AUTHORIZED to act. That is the way it works. Anything else is anarchy and illegal. As for days, that is simply not true. The US Government was in New Orleans as fast as any other disaster just as soon as they were authorized to be there. And they would not have been there one second sooner in any case. The bridges were out, the airfields were unusuable, the roads were blocked by fallen trees and debris.

    Perhaps you would care to ask the Governor why she did not place a single National Guard unit IN the city before the storm hit, instead deploying them all around her location?

    Perhaps you would care to ask the mayor why he did not use School busses and City Busses to bus people out the day before the storm hit? Maybe ask him why he had no police and supplies at the Stadium when he intended to use it as a shelter? Perhaps ask him and the Governor why they did not notify FEMA and the ARMY of all shelter locations and have the police check them after the storm?

    The failure was Local and State. FEMA had the materials and people in position to act after the storm. The Army could not predeploy because they were NOT asked to do so until after the storm hit. The Army even ASKED the Governor through channels if she needed them.

    Has nothing to do with this topic.

    You and I couldn't agree MORE on that steroid bullshit.

    But DO ask your questions of former Gov Blanco. Specifically, why she refused to ask for Fed intervention before it was too late? Why the mayor of one of her cities was about as negligent as it gets in evacuating his city?

    Why? Because Blanco's a foaming at the mouth rabid Dem who wasn't going to lower herself to asking a Republican President for anything.

    And Katrina could have hit anywhere in the Gulf, so claiming it was because there were some blacks in NO doesn't cut it.

    Does anyone in this election realize that George Bush isn't on the ballot? Maybe they should find some real issues to talk about.
