and take control. Can we get a caravan of buses to get those poor people out of there this time and get them adequate shelter? I don't give a fuck whose toes they step on, let's get these people some help.

7. The American people would see how real leaders lead though..
I just can't see standing by and letting this tragedy unfold again. You know the Democrats will take the blame if something bad happens, so I say let's be proactive. Lead follow or get out of the way.

9. Remember Al Gore flying hospital patients out?
He showed a hell of a lot more initiative than the sitting president did at the time.

Barack and Joe should do the same: just take charge.

10. I heard Jindal say he's got 700 buses this time.
Is he of Indian (India) heritage? It would be quite newsworthy if Obiden.

16. Jindal is of Indian heritage but no longer goes by his given name
His given name is Piyush and an op-ed writer from a LA paper said it was racist to use his given name.

15. Remember when Gore was literally in the trenches during Katrina?
He flew people to Tennessee for medical help and was actually out there in the mud, shoveling it. No photo-op, this. That's Gore for you.
