  •  What about the rest of the governors? (2+ / 0-)

    The graphics in the video show that none of the other governors are using the NG troops at their disposal either.  I can understand Crist in Florida, but Haley Barbour and the other Republican governors don't seem to be using their assets, either.

    In this situation, my response would be to clean first, bill later.  Use everything that helps, hire the locals, deploy the boats.  The cost of doing nothing far outweighs doing everything possible to stop the spill and clean up the damage.
