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

Just one week after threatening to punch out President Bush, US Senator Mary Landrieu (Moonbat-LA) is now saying that it is Bush's fault that New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin didn't use now-submerged school buses to evacuate people from the Louisiana Superdome prior to Hurricane Katrina's landfall.

On Sunday, Landrieu said it was President Bush's fault that New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin didn't use city school buses to evacuate those trapped by flooding.

(FEMA Director Michael) Brown's departure, Landrieu said, "will not alone solve all the problems that plagued the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina and the devastating floods that followed the levee breaches."

In a statement posted to her Web site, the Louisiana democrat insisted that the Bush White House still needed to be held responsible.

"The people of our nation, and in particular, the Gulf Coast, deserve and demand full accountability for this administration's missteps in protecting and helping Americans in need," Landrieu complained.

Think about this -- Landrieu holds so much antagonism against Bush that she blames him for the shortcomings of the Mayor of New Orleans!

I've heard of holding a grudge, but this is ridiculous.

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.
