We were supposed to be planning on how to deal with something of this magnitude for the last four years. What if this had been a dirty bomb or multiple attacks on major cities or something even worse?
The National Guard should have been mobilized BEFORE the storm and been in the city DAYS ago. And FEMA... Jesus, what the hell happened to FEMA?
The government at ALL levels should be criticized for a good long time over this and should be made 100% accountable and taken to task.
This was a collosal failure. The government failed its citizens. It failed its poorest citizens. It is unconscionable.
This isn't an anti-Republican thing, this isn't an anti-Democrat thing, this isn't an anti-Bush thing.
Democrats failed these people. Republicans failed these people. Independents failed these people. Local government failed these people. State government failed these people. Federal government failed these people.
There should NEVER have been a time (post-hurricane) when it was unsafe for the President of the United States of America to be in New Orleans.
There's plenty of blame to go around for this collosal screw up and anyone and everyone on the receiving end of that blame mother-fucking DESERVES it.
