Blaming the Republicans for Hurrican Katrina??
I must have missed the class in Republican 101 where they teach you to control the weather and create hurricanes.
Of course .. You're probably trying to blame Katrina on Republicans because of the way FEMA failed to organize and manage a rescue operation after a horrible natural disaster.
And you're probably NOT refering to the way that residents of New Orleans were committing crimes, robbing, stealing, looting, murdering, etc. Let's not even mention how some of the people opened fire on rescue helicopters, hospital staff, patients, and even women and children.
So who's more at fault? The Republicans because there was a sitting Rep. President at the time of the hurricane? FEMA and it's directors for failing to organize and manage rescue operations? Or those residents in N.O. that created more problems and situations that slowed down progrees of rescue and humanitarian operations?
Moral of story-quit blaming the other guys and DEMAND honor and integrity from your representatives.

While he wasnt in congress at the time for voting the Iraq war he continued to support operations in the Iraq war including the troop surge and rallied americans continued presence there. Voted against "campaign donation limits".
