    I'm not a Bush apologist, anyone who's read my posts knows that. At the same time, regarding this whole Katrina brouhaha, it was NOT a fed breakdown. Blame the governor and mayor.

    What I DO blame the fed for, is the most stupid idea ever, the $2000 ATM card.

    Good article. Seems as though politics and posturing made "leaders" to afraid to act and an already raped FEMA was exposed for all to see ( as well as the ghetto mentality of the citizens who had to or decided to stay behind).

    Infrequently, even a liberal rag like the NYT will print the truth. I am a bit surprised it wasn't done in the current liberal fashion: yes,blancoandnaginscrewedup,(smallest print possible to indicate insignificance) BUT BUSH IS OUR PRESIDENT. HIS SCREWUP IS WORSE, AND WE SHOULD BE DISCUSSING THAT.

    That was the tactic employed by NBC on Dateline Thursday. The kept skipping right over the failings of local and state preparedness and kept bashing the federal response.

    I haven't heard anyone ask the important questions like , "Why wasn't there emergency water, food, and medical supplies prepositioned at the Superdome and Convention Center when they knew based on the results of Hurricane Ivan a year earlier that they would have to shelter up to 100,000 people?" Or, "Why didn't Blanco send in every available means of mass transit to evacuate as many people as possible before the storm hit?"

    A few of us have asked those questions right on this board. But turn on the TV, and you would think Governor Blanco did everything right; if you hear her name at all, that is. That is why I look forward to hearings on this. Let the truth come out. Of course, the MSM will still twist the reportage to suit their lib propoganda needs.

    I really hope they don't do the debit card. big mistake. I Still don't see how they would ever regulate who gets it anyhow.
