tieguy said:yep you're right. They knew the levees would break. They knew how much damage would be done. They knew New Orleans had those buses sitting there. they knew exactly where this storm would hit. They knew exactly how much damage would be done down to the dollar. they knew there would be many people starving to death. After all we have one of these storms every week. And yet they chose to ignore all this exact information because they enjoy watching people drown and starve to death. Politics at work again.
I guess you didn't see the tape. George Bush lied and lied again. People died. Watch the video here:tieguy said:only if you're being paid to be the official apologist for the governor and mayor that were involved and who had direct responsibiliity in this matter to either
a) Handle the crisis
b) assess what assets were needed and request them from the federal government.
Once again, I refer you to the tape. The destruction was anticipated, and the weather service was nearly biblical in their description of the scope of this storm. Bush and Chertoff dropped the ball. The burden to respond to a disaster of this magnitude lies on the Federal level. At the very least, Bush should take responsibility in the strongest possible of terms, and fire Chertoff immediately.tieguy said:lol. Theres a good democrat willing to sacrifice a mayor and governor to gain a president.
if there was anyone that I think could have handled it better I might agree. Keep in mind Brown and Bush handled numerous major hurricanes the previous year with few issues. The scope of this storm was far above what anyone anticipated.
