You do know that it is up to the local and the state government to evacuate their towns and protect their citizens?
The FEDs cannot assist until the governor gives consent. The dumb ass governor-who was voted out of office for her total failure to act timely and responsibility during Katrina -was asked two days prior to Katrina to give consent BUT the moron waited three days after it hit to do so.
Once the FEDs were allowed to enter the state and render help the horrific scenes from New Orleans stopped. In less than 24 hours everyone was evacuated.
and yet every other president had the foresight to PRE-POSITION SUPPLIES AND RESPONDERS

BTW, check your facts
Governor Blanco sends a letter to President George W. Bush asking him to declare a major disaster for the State of Louisiana, in order to release federal financial assistance on SATURDAY, AUGUST 25

Mayor Nagin ordered mandatory evacuation Sunday morning at 10AM

The Hurricane didn't make landfall until Sunday night August 28 Monday morning August 31.

Wednesday August 31 Homeland security director Michael Chertoff released a memo to other cabinet members and the Environmental Protection Agency stating that, "the President has established the 'White House Task Force on Hurricane Katrina Response.' He will meet with us tomorrow to launch this effort." The memo also declared Hurricane Katrina to be an Incident of National Significance and designated Michael Brown, Under-Secretary for Emergency Preparedness and Response (EP&R), as the Principal Federal Official (PFO) for incident management purposes."

3 DAYS AFTER KATRINA HITS BUSH DECIDES TO ESTABLISH A TASK FORCE....

Newsweek: Was Lara Logan's Husband Involved In 60 Minutes' Botched Benghazi Story?
Citing the fact that "nobody at 60 Minutes has been fired or even publicly disciplined for its odd, inflammatory and dead-wrong" Benghazi report, Newsweek's Jeff Stein points to Logan's husband, Joseph Burkett, as "the most interesting figure in this mystery."
Stein explains that Burkett is "a former Army sergeant and onetime employee of a private intelligence outfit hired by the Pentagon to plant pro-U.S. stories in the Iraqi media in 2005." The Lincoln Group, Burkett's former employer, apparently specialized in producing videos and phony news clips that they would then feed to media outlets, "making them appear as originating from legitimate news organizations." From Newsweek:
According to an internal company document obtained by Newsweek, the Lincoln Group specialized in producing films, news clips, and print stories in Baghdad that would be fed to the media through cutouts on an unattributed basis, making them appear as originating from legitimate news organizations.
During the 2006 battle for Fallujah, "Our development of documentaries of the Fallujah campaign and our ability to develop non-Coalition attributable messages enabled us to reach out to the Iraqi audience," the document says. "This multifaceted project produced content for Western, Arab, and Iraqi audiences and is still ongoing. For each audience we have identified content and formatting that is appropriate and non-attributable to the actual source." (Italics added.)

Great Deal-Iran got everything they want and we get another debt-a very BIG debt!
Dude, not sure where you get your information, but its dead wrong. We are not paying Iran a dime,

We are freeing up their FROZEN ASSETS. Its their money bozo breath.

he concessions not only halt Iranís nuclear advances but also make it virtually impossible for Tehran to build a nuclear weapon without being detected, the officials said. In return, Iran will receive modest relief of trade sanctions and access to some of its frozen currency accounts overseas, concessions said to be valued at less than $7 billion over the six-month term of the deal. The sanctions would be reinstated if Iran violates the agreementís terms.

Let's look at Obama's agenda for today according to Mark Knoller-

Obama back at WH after ~90 mins of basketball. Heads west this afternoon for Dem fund raiser.

But, was too busy with Obamacare to take 15 min ride to a Gettysburg event.

What is it with you libtards? Everything has to lead back to abortion. As I've said a million times abortion is murder but if you libtards want to kill your future go right ahead. Doesn't bother me a bit. One more slacker I won't have to provide for.

Obama is definitely responsible for ObamaKare and for his anti - America policies. Remember Obama,with help form Peolsi,Reid and others forced ObamaKare on our country. ObamaKare never should have been passed,especially illegally on the eve of Christmas recess through reconciliation. Tax and spend bills have to originate in the House,and can't be passed by reconciliation. Not a single Republican voted for ObamaKare. Thant you Democrat congress for the infamous 2009 Christmas present,that we will be paying for for the rest of our lives.

As I said it before nothing is amusing as seeing the Progressives trying to figure out a disaster to compare Obamacare too.
Let's just say nothing will do so long term damage to our economy or degrade health care as this bill.
No war, no hurricane, nothing can be compared to this sort of self-inflicted damage.
Storms and hurricanes are an act of nature, ObamaKare is a man made disaster.

Did you ever notice that abortion is the only thing that libs are pro"choice" about? Every other part of our lives they want to control.

Of course. That and we can make the choice to sever the spinal cords and suck out the brains of 50 million babies in utero, but it is inhumane to economically deport 20 million illegal alien entitlement suckers.

That is perfect logic in Lib Land.

I think in Obama New Speak, it is actually a man CAUSED DISASTER. Like a terrorist attack.

And an outright Obama lie is now, he "misspoke," according to the New York Times.
