Holy #$%%! I misread the poll question, I thought it was if it is right to publicize the aftermath of Katrina. That changes everything, the answer is no, hell no it isn't right to turn this tragedy into a political tool, god no.

It's been a long week, even here in Southwest Louisiana, and right now we all just have so much going on, so many to help, most of us are fatigued and can't see straight, but it'll get better, hopefully sooner than expected, prolly not though.SKILMATIC said:Yes make sure you read it correctly. And I think your right its not right to politicaize this. The most imprtant thing right now is helping people. But I do also think its ok to question why things are so bad there and who failed to prevent this kinds thing. Now again question not politicize there is a major difference.
Huh? She doesn't control the National Guard, she doesn't control Congress, she doesn't control the Administration. Those who are controlling these institutions and agencies are the ones with the slowed result.Navy Pride said:No its not but I just heard on C-SPAN the Minority Leader in the HOR Nancy Pelosi doing just that................Sad...........
What exactly was clear? That the levee's would fail? There was no way to know this and no way to fix it as the storm approached. This was the final blow that devastated the city after the storm moved through not during. Was it a potential disaster waiting to happen.....yes indeed and so is every city near the San Andreas fault and yet they keep building.steen said:What is NOT right, though, is to merely be reactive after the disaster struck, when it was clear that it was on its way.

So as best I can read your reply, you are merely spewing partisan lies to score political points.
Yes, if you want to keep up such lies to play politics and show what your conservative party really is all about, have at it.
With all due respect I think you don't get it.........Ms Pelosi was talking to reporters and was politicizing the disaster that happened blaming everyone in the other party and in this time of need and everyone pulling together together she is doing just the opposite for partisan political motives and that is just sad...........
No, it isn't right but they're doing it anyways and so am I. I being from Fl. and having survived Andrew and to many hurricanes to name feel I'm in a position to state something of relevance so here's my rant cuz I'm p*****d. There is no reason in hell that there should have been this amount of loss of life in this technological age with the advanced warning we recieved. It's been common knowledge for a long time now that the 'bowl' section of New Orleans was succeptable to flooding where the hell was the Governor of Loisiana Kathleen Babineaux Blanco (D) at? She really dropped the ball on this one! Like I said I'm from Fl. and Governor Jeb Bush (R) handled the numerous hurricane situations with utmost profesionalism and took care of business and we've been hit like 20 times in the last two years with not even a close proximity to the death count in the whole state to equal that in the one city of New Orleans! We had excellent evac routes and a minimum loss of life my cousin got hit, I got hit, shoot just about everyone in my family has been hit by a Hurricane in the past two years and there has been nowhere near the amount of loss of life as there is in New Orleans, even in Key West or Miami. Florida took lots of steps in the aftermath of Andrew it's the governors responsibility not the presidents. Jeb was on t.v. like every day during the hurricanes I haven't seen the Loisiana governor on t.v. once since this whole incident started!
Yes, I understand your pain over having a president (R) that have no problem sending national guard troops to die in Iraq, but have difficulty sending them around in the US to save lives of Americans.
We are already, despite conservative hate mongering lies to the contrary.
Ah, yes. I remember. You decided to deliver your hate-mongering tirade and then the discussion Was "done," before somebody would actually challenge you on it.SKILMATIC said:WEll good do it some more and stfu. Again discussion closed. Either talk about how you can help the problem or just shutup.
