Me, I just want SOMEBODY to point out FEMA’s actual failures instead of using a disputed resume blemishes and a lot of showy handwringing to suggest [FEMA Director Michael] Brown’s failures.Well, yeah.
Protein Wisdom: My third brief conversation with the Ghost of Louisiana "Kingfish" Huey Long
By the way, do you know who directed FEMA's response to the four hurricanes that hit Florida last year? Michael Brown did.
Know what the Left says about that?
In 2004, swing-state Florida voters slammed by hurricanes received lots of help and close personal attention from President Bush. But there's no election this year.That's post-Katrina Salon.com, whose link to the full article requires you to subscribe.
I'd love to pay them fair value for the 3 year subscription, but I don't have a dime handy.
And it's not just that they are saying this now, they were saying back then:
Now that Hurricane Charley has swept through Florida, it's a safe bet President Bush will sweep in. Natural calamities present political opportunity, and many crucial electoral votes are in the path of Charley's howling winds.Charming folks, ain't they?
[ON SECOND THOUGHT:] Maybe it's not a fair comparison, this Louisiana and Florida thing; Florida actually has a Governor who is willing and able to do his job.
