The Anti-Giuliani

If a mandatory evacuation was ordered, why weren't all the taxpayer-purchased buses used in the effort? Looks like my dad had it right when last week he termed New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin as the "Anti-Giuliani."

I think we are starting to see him doing a little back pedaling.

"We are starting to see some significant progress. I'm starting to see rays of light," - Mayor Nagin

I have a feeling he saw the picture of his buses on the Drudge Report too, and may have taken a second look in the mirror.

Glad someone has figured out how to import pictures. I still have to be satisfied with providing just a link....

I think it's great that in a city that is 10 feet under water, the Mayor can get away with saying that no one foresaw the levee being breached by a Category 4 hurricane. He becomes a poor, besieged media darling because he's getting no help from the federal government. Nobody points out that state and local governments are expected to be first responders to all types of emergencies and disasters. Nobody even points out the differences between NYC's quick response to the 9/11 attacks and New Orleans' lack of response to a major hurricane.

Then a spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers points out that the levee was only built to withstand a Category 3 hurricane, and he's the voice in the wilderness.

I guess the facts don't matter.
