Delay Comment: So Fucking Ridiculous; From CNN
DeLay added that Alabama and Mississippi did a much better job of responding quickly than Louisiana. Alabama and Mississippi have Republican governors. Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco is a Democrat.

I'm just going to love pasting this damned thing everywhere, I can already tell.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/08/print/2...

The White House, President George W. Bush

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
August 27, 2005

Statement on Federal Emergency Assistance for Louisiana

The President today declared an emergency exists in the State of Louisiana and ordered Federal aid to supplement state and local response efforts in the parishes located in the path of Hurricane Katrina beginning on August 26, 2005, and continuing.

The President's action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives, protect property and public health and safety, or to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the parishes of Allen, Avoyelles, Beauregard, Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Caldwell, Claiborne, Catahoula, Concordia, De Soto, East Baton Rouge, East Carroll, East Feliciana, Evangeline, Franklin, Grant, Jackson, LaSalle, Lincoln, Livingston, Madison, Morehouse, Natchitoches, Pointe Coupee, Ouachita, Rapides, Red River, Richland, Sabine, St. Helena, St. Landry, Tensas, Union, Vernon, Webster, West Carroll, West Feliciana, and Winn.

Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 75 percent Federal funding.

Representing FEMA, Michael D. Brown, Under Secretary for Emergency Preparedness and Response, Department of Homeland Security, named William Lokey as the Federal Coordinating Officer for Federal recovery operations in the affected area.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: FEMA (202) 646-4600.

9. The definitive word is 'coordinate'. This proves that they're...
responsible for the lack of coordination.

10. delay's a moron
he is engaging in his usual partisan hack job trying to make himself a useful, important player in the pukie party. His pathetic attempts seem a lot like sen joe mc carthy's attempts to seem relevant after he was made to look like an ass in his "communists in the army witch hunt" that brought him down.

15. He said Feds are "wholesalers" of relief, "states" are retailers!!!
Edited on Wed Sep-07-05 08:52 PM by Mein Bush
This idiot said that disaster relief is supposed to work from "the bottom up". He actually said that the feds are the wholesalers of relief and the state and local governments are the retailers. What if the levees were blown up by "terrists" (i.e. terrorists not tourists)?

If you combine this with what a conservative commentator (Kelly Anne something) said a couple of days ago on FOX that FEMA should be privatized, you can see where the right-wing-freak-show's priorities lie.

America is being run on a corporate philosophy gone stark raving mad.
