    Even Nancy Pelosi said Hil/oba or oba/Hil ticket is not a winning ticket. lol

    I've often heard that... I've read someplace years ago that they had the buses ready and waiting but they went out empty... people did not leave.

    On top of that, some people left, but when the came back that was when the flooding started.

    Far as blame? The entire gov f that up... DEMS and REP... I'm sorry.... and Nagin whining like a little girl... he made me sick to my stomach. I wanted to give him a section of my spin, apparently he has none. Nagin showed no leadership skills.

    If I learned one thing in the military it is that you have to know when to pass the buck... we used to call it CYA. But I also learned when not to pass the buck and make what we used to call "a command decision." In this situation everyone passed the freakin buck. No one wanted to make the command decision.

    It was not about racism... a lot of white people suffered in this as well. This was about the gov and about the poor... and the "working poor." It was about the big business of insurance (to a lessor degree).
