    When were the levees built? Seems to me they have been ignored since THEN. When we routinely see C-4 hurricanes, why would you build levees capable of withstanding C-2's?

    Yet another decades-old problem that was never a crisis until Bush took office. Dishonest bullshit.

    Amazing how these dem politicians feel they must be considered blameless. Screw them and their arrogance. They were the first line of defense, and they did horribly. Blame where it's due is anathema to the dems.

    I'm sick of the shit.

    Left: It's Bush's fault. He wouldn't support the Kyoto Protocal nor upgrade the levees. Where's Bush with my handout?

    Right: Shit happened. Let's deal with it.

    They DID! WTF part of this don't these MORONS!!! understand? Fact is they DO KNOW!

    Like I said in another thread last week (or maybe even yesterday)...Bush is THE target, plain and simple. It's all politics for many of these people. It's a damn shame! The worse National disaster in the Countries history, and instead of coming together to
    fix things, save people and get on with life, these people just want to destroy someone. It plain sick...I for one am NOT going to stand-by and let these idiots keep blowing smoke up everyones ass.

    the federal and state efforts where a failure to relieve the trapped
    citizens. The National Guard should have been in the streets from day 2.


    I dont know who exactly is to blame but I hope the governor of the state
    and the head of Fema loose their job over this debacle.

    Bush looked like shit in all this too. A disaster of this magnitude and
    he run his usual hands off managing approach. Sure he cant do
    much but he can pressure officials to act. Where was the water and
    food?

    If you let political responsibility slide the next person in office
    will be not more inclinded to show a top performance.

    Bush already run his last election so it doesnt matter what the outcome
    of an investigation is.

    Giving his administration a free pass on all of this is just foolish on your part.


    I would be pissed if I had to wait 5 friggin days for help anywhere.

    there is no way to evacuate a city of this size to begin with.
    I worked in flood rescue in Germany as part of the village voluntary
    firefighters.

    Once people are trapped you go out and rescue them. Blaming them for
    being there doesnt get anything done.

    The Us performance outside the US was faster then in the New Orleans
    debacle it seems.

    You want to blame the victims . wow.
