Oxymoronic Defense...

The right's response in defense of the president is "the local governmrnt failed in their duties to provide proper aide." It's oxymoronic to use that line of defense. A devasted state asking for help, can't help itself. That's the whole issue! Even if the mayor failed, the responsibility for the lack of aid immediately following the disaster lies squarely on our so-called president. Think about it, Rudy Giuliani didn't clean up 9/11 on his own.

Why, if we can have a C-130 airborne in 2 hours full of food and airdrop the same day in Iraq and Afghanistan, does it take 5 days to drop food into New Orleans?

So what if there are stray renegades shooting? Do you think they don't in other devastated countries where we provide aid?
I'm asking myself, What has this president done to make me safer?
Nothing, for all the hubris over the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, and other programs, we are no safer than we were before 9/11. If terrorists had bombed the levees instead of a hurricane, we would be in the same situation.

The White House is saying Ray Nagen-N.O. Mayor did not fill out all the paperwork properly and timely enough.

That makes it all better don't it?

Oh, and I guess you can tell I've been kind of angry lately. Thanks for digging right in with me and helping me get it out. You're appreciated.

This is slightly off topic but if Katrina would have hit Florida, the damage would have been asessed immediately. Then again, we have Jeb. I think it's all a matter of "worth." I don't think that the Pres. thinks that those people are "worth" asessing. Just my thoughts. I would also like to know how you got the Wake Up Wal*Mart link on your sidebar. I couldn't find the HTML for it.

N.N.
P.S. I found your blog through Red Molly in case you were wondering.

Hey N.N. you are Red Molly's nephew I gathered from your comments on Blue Page.

I think you just follow the link on the banner, sign up and then you get the badge codes page after you add your name to the list of Anti-WalMart folks.
