No, here in Houston we'll be fine if the hurricane is bad. The headquarters of Halliburton and Enron are here. Tom Delay's district is here, and Daddy and Momma Bush live here. So no, we'll have prompt relief allowing no opportunity to blame Bush. That's if the Hurricane doesn't take an unexpected turn before it hits us.

You can't blame Pres. Bush for the lack of funds. Show me one spending bill he has vetoed. You can't because he's always willing to shell out the money anytime someone asks.

So, how will the federal government screw this up? Will the new FEMA director just give the same advice he gave before? DUCT TAPE!!!!

I'm sorry to have to ask this, but with all the complaints about the federal government cutting levee funds...
why is it the federal government's responsibility to raise the levees?

Last I checked, NOLA folks pay federal taxes like the rest of us.
