    it will beg comparisons by the media to the Katrina response.  Hopefully for those in the path of the storm, the Federal response won't be a repeat and will live up to what the world would expect of a country like the United States.

      The Governor will make a speedy request for help.  Unlike that waist of oxygen Blanco.  Sitting on her ass hoping all would be ok.

        Blanco was not the problem.  FEMA and specifically Brownie and the "Sec of Homeland Security" Michael Chertoff were the problem.   Blanco was begging for federal help two days before the storm hit.  She also urged Nagin to order the evacuation but he refused.  Why would you pick on the one Democrat in that whole bunch?

        Still enjoying my stimulus package.

          She dropped the ball and didn't make the proper requests.  Only asked for help with shelters and food. She assumed Nagin was handling the evacuation. D or R is not the point. She failed as a leader period.
