I haven't heard the whole thing -- I admit it.
From what I have heard, this is less of a gotcha for the Prez than it is for the Mayor of N.O. and the Gov of LA.
The thing that first comes to mind is, why didn't the state guys take this storm as seriously as the Fed did?
Some are saying that this is a big problem for the Prez, that it could billow into a full-fledged scandal. Maybe.
I think it shows that the Feds were far more on-the-ball and concerned about this storm than the locals were.
Lastly, I think it's important to say that nothing that anybody could have reasonably done bofore or after the storm would have made one iota of a difference with regards to the crazy-bad damge that was done to the cities hit.
By the way, wasn't there another city/population center hit is MI &/or AL? How did their state officials handle the Katrina? It seems interesting that we never seem to hear much about them.
We'll see what happens...
