In 1989-90 I worked out of New Orleans and my office was on the Mississippi levee. Everyone has known for DECADES that the pump-motors were below so if the motors ever got flooded, the pumps stopped working. And did they do anything about that problem? NO!!! And Katrina proved that they would fail. So, after Katrina they put in the new pumps with the motors above sea level!!!
Now, for DECADES New York City knew that if the tide level went over 12 feet, that the tunnels would flood. What did they do about that? NOT A DAMN THING!!! Now, I wonder what they will do to prevent that from happening again?!?
Oh, both New York and New Orleans have been run by .... Liberals!!!
<quoted text>
In the 1930's, when New Orleans drained the cypress swamp and built the levee system, they knew the pump-motors would fail if they got flooded. And when New York built those tunnels, they knew if there was a storm surge of over 11 feet, they too would flood. And yes, New York has been ruled by Democrats.
Sure, they have had a few Republican mayors but without a Conservative city management, they were doomed!!! Sorry, the only New Yorkers I have any empathy for is the children who have inherited their parents mistakes!

Gee, what part did the Army Corps of Engineers play in New Orleans?

In March 1990 SE Alabama had a century flood and my mother-in-law got flooded out. Even though she was one of the few houses on higher ground the flood came up to the bottom of her window sills.
And she was one of the few with flood insurance and seven days after the flood her insurance company, Farmers, cut her two checks totally $35,000 and six weeks later they paid her for her motel expenses.
Meanwhile a neighbor who was on lower ground, and who did not have flood insurance, had a mysterious house fire and they gave him only ....$18,000 as they based the value of his home .... with flood damage. That is right. He got $18,000 for a house valued at $65,000 BEFORE THE FLOOD!!!
Oh, he was on lower ground than my mother-in-law and the flood water went all the way up into the attic!
Is there a problem here?

Next week the Republicans will retake the Senate and the White House. Just like Jimmy "The White Peanut Man" Cater, Barrack "The Black Gangstar" Obama will have become another one term president.

Rogue, a bit of rehashing here. It's about Romney and Obama.

In the Romney campaign, where are those "heavy" republicans, like Palin, McCain, GWB, daddy Bush, Jeb Bush, Cheney, Grove, Rice, et al? Absent except Rice at the NRC, and no stumping, no speeches. Are they absent because they cannot in all honesty back him? Or is Romney not wanting to associate with them, thinking they are an embarrasment?

As to the dems, well, you said Carter was not at the DNC , though he's 88 and was last president 32 yrs ago (he did give a closed-circuit talk and publicly backing Obama)but Clinton is there, Kerry is there. You said Powell did not back him, you rejoiced, yet he just did give his blessing, now he's this and that in your book. The Kennedy family, or what's left of it is all for Obama. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger is a closet Obama supporter though he cannot go public. Yet. Thanks, Maria.

Please give us your opinion as to why this is, this Republican estrangement and Democratic closeness.

The levees around the 9th Ward were built, not by the Army Corps of Engineers, but by the City of N.O. Same goes for the pumps. The City failed to maintain the levees and then the Corps of Engineers got roped in.
Again, we FEDERAL taxpayers have to pay for Liberal mistakes!!!
Oh, on the levee next to the PHI heliport in N.O. was a Corps levee as it protected the Mississippi Rover and it did not fail. Only City levees failed!!! But you blamed Bush for non-federal levees failing!
The mayor of N.O. ignored evacuation recommendation from FEMA and did not start to evacuate until less than 48 hours be for Katrina hit, and the Libtards blamed blamed BUSH.
The mayor of Ocean City, NY ignored Gov. Christy's evacuation order and you Libtards are blaming Christy fore the slow response?!? You Libtards will not blame Obama for the slow response, only Christy (because he is the Republican)!

Also, the Friday before Katrina hit, AMTRAC informed N.O. they were pulling out of the city and with every AMTRAC car and offered to take anyone who wanted to leave for FREE yet they were ignored so the trains left EMPTY!!!
All N.O.'s school buses where left parked (and got flooded out) yet one person who commandeered a school bus and drove it to Houston, TX got arrested! Not only did he save lives, he saved the school bus!!!

Poll dated today Nov 01, Rogue. I cite it because I know you like to buttress your numbers using Huffington.

elections.huffingtonpost.com/

Mind you, you won't find me jumping for joy, delirious as all birthers have been since the first disastrous Obama debate. I still predict that it's anyone's race, whoever wins will surprise me. I hope it's Obama, but hope does not win elections, right? In the unlikely event that Obama wins, will he have won it by fraud? In the unlikely event of a Romney win , will his victory be fraud-free?

I read the press extensively. Have seen nothing but praise for Christie. Can you give me any references concerning crticism of Christie? Are you peeved, by any chance, because Christie praised Obama's role?

1) the Corps of Engineers build the levee system
2) investigations determined that the cause of the levee failure was due to inadequate design and constrution by the Corps
3) again, we taxpayers are paying for dumb Army mistakes
4) Blame Bush for what?
5) We all can blame Bush for appointing an friend instead of a compentent individual to head up FEMA.
6) We all can blame Bush for grandstanding after Katrina.

Your 5): Was the appointee not previously in the fashion industry with no public service experience what is so ever? Is he not the one who ordered the shipment of freight trains of ice to New Orléans, only to have to ship it back north when it was realised it was not needed instead of just dumping it and letting iut melt?(Vanity Fair). Cost, about $1 million.

For Rogue, from Wikepedia, as to the construction of that 9th district levee :

In 1965, heavy flooding caused by Hurricane Betsy brought concerns regarding flooding from hurricanes to the forefront. That year Congress passed the Flood Control Act of 1965 which, among other issues, gave authority for design and construction of the flood protection in the New Orleans metropolitan area to the Corps of Engineers subject to cost sharing principles, some of which were waived by later legislation. The local municipalities were charged with maintenance once the projects were completed.

Obama Is In The Midst Of A Collapse In Michigan

President Barack Obama has seen a once-steady lead in Michigan decline to just 2 points in a recent poll, and Michigan has been thrown into "toss-up" status in the election's final week.

Ah, good point....except you forgot about Lifer Logic Rule #1

Rule #1:
There is ALWAYS some way to blame a democrat.

...now since LBJ was the pres in 1965, all of the Katrina mess can thus be blamed on him.

See, Lifer Logic always works!!!!
