Comments: US Senator says it's Bush's fault that Nagin didn't use buses

Can I punch her for continuing to criticozing President Bush to the mutual exclusion of state and local officials?

It's sad. This lady, however sweet she is, is a moron. And a Senator. I suspect she's not the only one.

The President and Mayor of New Orleans were delayed by the Governor of LA. The Presidennt
could have overruled her and there would be
cries of "beating up on a WOMAN"! The old part
of New Orleans was not flooded. It you founded
a place over 250 years ago, would it not be
on high ground! It does not take a degree in
Civil Engineering to reach this conclusion.
Georgetown in Washington, DC was high ground
when most of area was a swamp. Mary Landrieu's
father was the Mayor of New Orleans for
multiple terms in 1960's and 1970's. They
built areas on swamp (TV calls wetlands) that
people said would be washed out by hurricane.
Mary Landrieu's father was the Mayor
in New Orleans then and now she is the senior
Senator and her brother is Lt. Governor. This was
largest storm to hit Gulf Coast in memory.
There should be blame for local, state, and
federal response, but mainly state.

Why is it that the only whining about federal response is coming from NOLA. I havn't heard one official or resident from Mississippi complaining about the federal response. Mississippi had entire communities completely dissappear.
