Nagan Again?

Saw the New Orleans Mayor Ray (There was a hurricane coming?) Nagan on the news this morning. He was answering questions from a Congressional inquiry on his actions & views on the Hurricane Katrina disaster. His answers showed that he was back-pedaling and blaming everyone and everything for the delays in getting help, not evacuating, etc...

One of his answers really struck me as odd, and definitely showed me that he hadn't a clue as to what his office really stood for and the authority & responsibility that he had to help the people of New Orleans.

He was asked why there was such a delay in issuing the order to evacuate the city. His response was that he had to check with his legal advisors to see if such an order was within the powers of his office.

Now any mayor that knows anything and has attended disaster training sessions & meetings knows that he has the authority to save the citizens of his city from disaster by issuing an evacuation order. Obviously, this yahoo(!) had no friggen idea what to do, how to do it, or if he could do it. And with a hurricane bearing down on his city, he should have known what his options were ahead of time since he had plenty of warning. What an incompetant idiot...

I wonder if Nagan will run for re-election. If he gets re-elected, then it will be a sad state of affairs for New Orleans.

Wonder how the Governor will do in these same hearings...

Nagan is an idiot. And he'll be re-elected because Democrats are idiots.

You've been added, Tom.

Tom, LOL! Dude, you almost cussed. Ha. Yeah ... Nagan is a flippin moron. Here's the bottom line though partner ... Nagan will be re-elected because the largest percentage of New Orleans is Black. They don't care how stupid or incompetent he is ... they just care that he is "representing" his race. I mean ... what kind of moron re-elects Marion Berry? You know? This fool will be re-elected and will make the same mistakes over and over again. I read in Time that he stated he wasn't a racist. What a flippin joke!!!! He's the worst kind of racist. He's a racist that don't think he's a racist. LOL!!!!I think that if New Orleans re-elects him, then they are getting what they deserve. Sure ... they'll have their "chocolate" city back, but it won't last long.

Nagin is a shoe-in for re-election. He's playing the race card, using all the wink-wink, nod-nod language and passing the buck off to Dubya. We all know how much Bush hates blacks and poor people, poor black people must be pond scum in his eyes, right?
