A lot of the failure can be blamed on the Lousiana state
government for their situation.
The Governor of Louisiana is incompetant.
The Mayor of New Orleans is too.
If Bush had the Feds take over and take control
from a democrat Governor and a democrat Mayor
the left would be up in arms.
He gets blamed no matter what he does or doesn't do.
BTW - two days before the hurricane struck Bush spoke to the
gov of Louisiana and asked her if she'd give her okay for the
feds to take control over the National Guard and direct them.
She wasn't capable of making a decision promptly and she
told him 'I'll get back to you, let me think about it'. Well, she
stood there like a deer in the headlights and did nothing.
She tied the hands of the feds.
