What do you think?

I know it's not "nice" to question the federal government's lack of urgency and ineptitude in their response to Katrina, but it's too outrageous to ignore.

What do you think should happen to those who were directly responsible for it?

I myself would like to see FEMA director Michael Brown, Homeland Security chief Chertoff, and even King George himself, as well as all those attempting to deny there was anything wrong, and those who continue to blame the victims forced to wade through chest deep water full of debris, chemicals, and oil and personally have to pull bloated bodies out of houses and pull them to dry land. And they should do this for 5 days without food or water.

Unfortunately, BushCo's track record on this subject dictates that there will only be promotions in the foreseeable future for those responsible for the criminally negligent, slow response to the emergency in the Gulf Coast.

Remember, not a single person was fired or even demoted following the colossal security failure that made the 9/11 attacks possible. Condeleeza Rice was promoted, George Tenet was forced out but with honors and kudos and a parachute so golden we haven't even heard him land yet, as well as General Myers taking a stronger role in BushCo's foreign fiasco... I mean "policy".

With regard to any commission that might examine the lethargic response to this hurricane disaster, other than a few local personages being disparaged, it'll be very much like the probe into the Abu Ghraib, et al, torture scandal: a few low level people will be punished, but the grossly guilty will walk away.

Let's be honest -- if film footage of George W. Bush molesting a child were aired on television, Fox News would run the tape in reverse and smear the child. America is sick right now. God only knows when this sickness will have run its course.

According to Bush if we all donate money and our own blood to the American Red Cross everything is gonna be alright.

Now compare that to Bush's quick flight to NY on 9/11-within 2 days- and the photo ops there - plus the huge checks given to the families of the 9/11 tragedy - 6 figure checks for each one....

Think about the folks in New Orleans and Biloxi. They will get zip. Nada - nothing. They will be lucky to rebuild their homes.

The payback to all of this is for our country to vote Democratic and throw all the bums out that are Bush and Co supporters -- quick. First round in 2006 and knock out blow in 2008. Even Republicans have to be darn ashamed of the behaviour the last week by Bush and his lack of leadership on this.

It took the Black COngressional Caucus to stand up and insiste that we help the people before Bush even realized what the heck was going on and his own brother lives in Florida..... This a disgraceful and makes us look even worse to other countries as we seem disorganized and that we don't care about our own people....

Dope is it true that Bush and Co did not even bother to call the Gov of Louisianna to let him/her know that Bush was going to visit Baton Rouge over the weekend? The Gov must be a Democrat.

In such a situation, party lines and partisanship aside, a leader would have done the senseable thing and opened up the lines of communication. Not Bush, he critzises and then he swoops in with his PR machine to try and repair his inept stupidity at his handling of the entire situation.

This is truely sad.

Bush is in full vicious punishment role. Obedience is demanded from even politicians undergoing unimaginable stress of trying to manage this collossal task.

Blanco, the Dem governor of Louisiana, is getting the full force of Bush's petulant and childish character.

He appeared in Baton Rouge, and like the little shallow-minded prick he is, avoided the governor even though they were touring the same shelter.

How could he be so stupid? He's a little pissant of a man, that's why.

It's all about HIM at all times, even in times of national emergency.

The governor had the nerve to question the federal response, so Bush gets pissy and "punishes" her.

Just what would it take for this guy to grow up and realize that pissy little spats aren't nearly as important as asuriing the victims, the American people, and the world, that their leaders are united and working hand in hand to provide help?

I am 100% certain that Bush and his henchmen will actively drag their feet, or pull other stunts ON PURPOSE for the reason of making state and local officials look bad.

Because, in the face of their constituents dying horrible and needless deaths, working around the clock in a desperate attempt to organize resources which weren't provided, that these local and state leaders actually expressed their frustrations.

Anyone with the emotional maturity of a 10 year old would easily excuse this and move past it in the face of such an enormous crisis. Not Bush and Rove.

They must be punished. Obedience and fealty is required. Dissent is not tolerated.

And they wonder why people accuse the Bush administration of resembling a totalitarian state?
