    Here are the buses that could have taken the people out of the city before the storm hit.

    Hello Mr. Mayor! Anybody home? [​IMG]

    I understand that buses drove through the streets of NO offering to take people out, but thousands refused to leave.

    Yes, and many of them were business owners who know the people of NO and knew what would happen to their homes and their businesses if they left.

    And some of them may have been the ones who wanted to do the damage.

    And on the news is also a story about 100 people who arrived in Houston on a stolen bus.

    They felt they had to steal a bus while hundreds of buses were sitting idle in a field waiting on flood waters.

    It's beyond me!

    I looked up the latest news about the New Orleans Mayor on the Internet and can't put a link because of all the foul language he used. Enough said.

    How do you expect a lost(?) man to react to being abandoned by his national government?

    Lost or saved, First of all I expect him to be a man who can lead. After all he wanted the job.

    If he needed the Federal Government to hold his hand while he did his job then he was in over his head and I think that is becoming more and more obvious as the days go by.

    Wow, over the top! Next you will be saying that Bush started the hurricane just to take the headlines away from Mrs. Sheehan. Don't you think that you should wait until you hear all sides before you judge a matter? We have no idea what was going on between Washington and New Orleans.

    We know it took four long days for the federal government to respond. Four days. Canada was just as quick and the Salvation Army and Southern Baptists were two days quicker.

    Someone said he needed the feds to hold his hand - who wouldn't with a disaster of thise scale.

    The feds are quick enough to take away states rights, but slow to respond to a state's needs.

    Over the top? I think not.

    C4K, The picture in the OP says it all.

    Some have eyes but cannot see.

    Oh wait, I must be mistaken! George Bush had the keys to the buses at the White House.

    What we do not know is what happened during that time. There will be Congressional hearings very quickly on that subject to establish the political blame. It is over the top, C4K, to answer a matter before you hear it.

    The mayor of New Orleans is the only government official who has impressed me at all.

    You people can keep on defending President Bush and the federal government's poor response all you want but if President Bush was running for a third term(I'm so glad that he can't) there is no way I would vote for him...even if that meant I had to simply refrain from voting in the presidential race.

    Who is defending the feds? Don't you think that you should wait until all the facts are established in Congress before you start firing people? Maybe Bush will fire someone in the next few hours. Then we might know more what happened.

    Since Bush didn't fire the folks that gave him the bad intel about Iraq I doubt he will fire anyone over this poor response by the federal government.
