smirk denies N.O. money - Nagin asks other countries for help

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060207/ts_nm/hurricanes_ai... ;_ylt=AmPwMbTS4N32BhrH7ZMUmT8DW7oF;_ylu=X3oDMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl

Mayor: New Orleans will seek aid from other nations

-snip-

Nagin, who has hosted a steady stream of foreign dignitaries since Hurricane Katrina hit in late August, says he may seek international assistance because U.S. aid has not been sufficient to get the city back on its feet.

"I know we had a little disappointment earlier with some signals we're getting from Washington but the international community may be able to fill the gap," Nagin said when a delegation of French government and business officials passed through on Friday to explore potential business partnerships.

Jordan's King Abdullah also visited New Orleans on Friday and Nagin said he would encourage foreign interests to help redevelop some of the areas hardest hit by the storm.

"France can take Treme. The king of Jordan can take the Lower Ninth Ward," he said, referring to two of the city's neighborhoods.

(referring to smirk)

"We need your undivided attention over the next six months," he said. "We need backup. We need for you to make the words that you spoke in Jackson Square a reality."

and props to Nagin for not giving up and continuing to fight for his city.

Clearly he doesn't care about the people of New Orleans, or anywhere for that matter.....if they were white rich Republicans, I guarantee clean up would have been done and paid for already! :banghead:

7. This will make Chimpy FURIOUS
Nagin is going over the chimps head with this and I hope he pursues it for the sake of the people who need help, and also to show * that the world doesn't revolve around him.
