9. Ask A Simple Question...
I've had a lot of success with this one against the kool-aid drinkers either blaming Nagin/Blanco or saying "boooosh didn't make the hurricane happen"...I ask the following:

1.) The issue is what happened AFTER the storm hit...as people were starving and dehydrating on roof tops. Where was George?

2.) Is there ANYTHING this regime did wrong? Is there any responsibility you're willing to take in these needless deaths?

They can spin about "it's their fault for not getting out of there". Uh uh uh...we're talking AFTER...those "buses" were already flooded, Gretna police were on the Crosstown Connection with shotguns at the ready...where was George?

They can say "it's a state matter"...that opens up the question as to where the National Guard was...and the disaster declarations that gave boooosh the authority to send in those forces even before the storm had abated....where was George?

Yep...they're blaming victims and it's immoral...straight out immoral. Their total ignorance and arrogance doesn't deserve anything but contempt.
