  •  no way to blame Obama (6+ / 0-)

    Two weeks in office, he can hardly rebuild New Orleans.  And of course is "rebuilding" New Orleans really what the former residents want?  

    How about good jobs and a decent place to live, why rebuild below sea level?  I don't see the attraction to putting yourself in a bad situation just because you lived there before, let's join Obama in beating back the repubs and restoring the entire country, starting with good jobs.

    •  His Bill Omits New Orleans, AND SO DO YOU (0+ / 0-)

      Of course I can blame Obama for his first two weeks failing to either focus attention on New Orleans in his promotion, or ensuring that it's included in the reconstruction. What possible excuse is there for not blaming him for his own omission?

      And now that I've been polite: What the hell are you talking about, "below sea level"? Are you abandoning everyone in LA, SF and all the other millions along earthquake faults? We shouldn't rebuild NYC after 9/11/2001, because it's a target of terrorists? How about we don't rebuild any of the rest of the country after it floods, like most of the midwest? Or whatever disaster makes your home a risk sometimes, like an East Coast hurricane, or a flu epidemic, or whatever. I had enough idiot Republicans blowing those chunks when they had the mic, and now I've got to hear it from someone saynig "let's restore the entire country"? What kind of American are you, to write off the entire city of New Orleans because it was fool enough to trust the Federal government's levees?

      Thanks for demonstrating exactly what I said: blame Republicans, but blame Democrats, too. Democrats like you. The kind of Democrats who will say "it's not time to play the blame game", because it will only affix blame properly to you, just like it would to the Republicans who treated the country your way under their teflon president.
