City’s Emergency Office 'Failed'
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a New Orleans Police captain, Timothy P. Bayard, prepared an internal report assessing the role played by his city's Office of Emergency Preparedness. He introduced the report to investigators by saying: "The New Orleans Office of Emergency Preparedness failed. They did not prepare themselves, nor did they manage the city agencies responsible for conducting emergency response to the disaster. Their function was to coordinate with state, federal and other local agencies, to enlist logistical assistance. We did not coordinate with any state, local or federal agencies. We were not prepared logistically. Most importantly, we relocated evacuees to two locations where there was no food, water or portable restrooms. We did not implement the pre-existing plan. We did not utilize buses that would have allowed us to transport mass quantities of evacuees expeditiously. We did not have food, water or fuel for the emergency workers. We did not have a back up communication system. We had no portable radio towers or repeaters that would have enabled us to communicate. The other mistakes have been mentioned previously."

bushie boy wasn't a man. Even his VP wasn't a man. He was actually considering using the military to arrest civilians.

Shows you how much he knew about American law.

And bushie boy never apologized for iraq. And he never will. He takes it all with a gain of salt and no responsibility. After all, it was Obama who got Bin Ladin after bushie shut down the special task force assigned that one function.

Yes, we know he's not your president. That seems to be the norm. I suggest people like you leave the country for a leader they recognize, but for some reason they refuse.

I wonder why?

Americans "have been" relinquishing their citizenship ...

Record number of Americans renouncing their citizenship to avoid paying taxes
Record 1,800 people renounced U.S. citizenship last year alone, up eight times the number of those who did in 2008
US one of few countries to tax its citizens on income earned while abroad
Taxes for ex-patriots are notoriously difficult; income up to $95,100 isn't taxed under Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, but wealthy must also pay 'exit tax' to leave States
Many expats are unaware of complicated laws and often have to pay thousands of dollars in in fines

Former National Security Adviser Samuel R. Berger was fined $50,000 by a federal judge yesterday for illegally taking classified documents out of the National Archives by stuffing them in his pants!! PDUPONT I know those darn Facts just gets in the way of a Good Lie…Right!!
No one disputes the fact that Sandy Berger removed copies of documents from the National Archives. He didn't however stuff documents down his pants but put them along with his notes in his pants pockets, jacket pockets and portfolio.
Carol and other right wingers have tried to conflate this as some kind of cover-up which is dumb as Berger had copies, not originals which are retained by the archives.

You just don't get it. You probably never will.
There is a more common sense approach to making health care costs more affordable and providing care to the truly needy at the same time without the IRS knowing if you need a colonoscopy.
You are handing over your private and personal medical information to the government and the IRS on a silver platter.
How many lemons have you bought in the past?
(You DO know Obamacare is going to leave more uninsured than are uninsured presently?)
HEY STUPID! The only thing the IRS has to do with health care reform is to verify that an individual have insurance coverage. The IRS doesn't get access to anyone's medical records you damned liar.
Your statement that Obamacare will leave more people uninsured is also a lie. The reason many people will remain uninsured is that many red states are opting out of Medicaid expansion. It's Republican governors and legislatures who are denying their citizens coverage for purely political reasons.

Hard to believe anyone could be so easily duped among us and, yet, there are too many even now.

Eight state governors have stated that they will take advantage of the recent Supreme Court ruling, allowing them to opt out of Obamacare’s dramatic expansion of Medicaid.
Twenty-six states have chosen to let the federal government run the online insurance markets required next year by President Obama's healthcare law instead of taking on the job themselves or partnering with the feds.
The CBO estimates that in 2022--8 years after the Affordable Care Act has been fully implemented--30 million people will remain uninsured.
It's going to be a big mess.
Those 30 million people are not all citizens. Are you suggesting you want to insure illegals?

Or were you just being your typical uninformed self?

I'm beginning to think you're being lazy is on purpose just to make me have to work to prove you wrong.
They were copies Carol, even the prosecutors in the case said they were copies. When you get documents from the National Archives you get copies, never the originals which are retained on file.
Why destroy them? Because even a copy of a classified document is classified you clueless twit!

If anything has been learned in the past few weeks, Obama is a poor manager at best.

For the leader to state he knew nothing, and "found out when you did" shows the man is either lying or has incompetent management abilities.

To think that this man was not to be found while four American's were killed, allowed targeting of conservative groups by the IRS and DOJ targeting of the press and their family.

At best Obama is a poor manager. In reality he is using his power to benefit his re-election. And to those families of those killed in Benghazi, I can only hope that some day he pays for this lack of action by dying a painful death in hell.
