Poll question: Louisiana/New Orleans hurricane response poll
Should we have one hit this season or in the next several years, your idea on the response from this administration vs. the response from the last administration.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. I'm not that cynical.
I have a hard time accepting that Obama would have shown the same callous negligence to Katrina as G. W. Bush.

2. Caring doesn't amount to a hill of beans
What matters most in a crisis is leadership.

3. We don't expect America to care enough to do anything helpful.

Don't worry we got over expecting that a long time ago.

5. I gotta say...
Louisiana got a lot more attention from Katrina than other states that also suffered at the same time or since. It's a common occurrence, people only care for the time being and then only if they suffered too.

7. I hope you are not too disappointed when you find out he doesn't.


And I hope you are safe when you find that out too.

8. My vote:
I am from Louisiana and I think Obama would care more than Bush did

But I have a stipulation to add - until the levees are completely restored, updated and secure, it won't matter.

Corps of Engineers procedures a hindrance, state officials say
