What I can't figure out is why the Guard is simultaneously:

1. Not letting Red Cross in because distributing food will supposedly prevent them from evacuating, AND

2. Not letting the people at the convention center and the overpass above out (blocking the only road out of Orleans parish). Watch Rivera and Smith in the H&C video.

I wonder what our Thornblog "don't-blame-anyone" folks think.

The immediate logistical problems stem from poor planing and even worse execution. FEMA is figuratively treading water and asking others to do so literally. There is a power vacuum that leaves emergency workers at all levels wondering what to do next. They are afraid to commit to any action because they fear untoward consequences. Someone tells them, "leave them in the convention center because we have busses coming," but then the busses never come. What are they supposed to do?

The failure in NO is a failure of leadership. The President's "can do" aproach is just play acting. He is a dry-drunk and his major accomplishment to date is getting tens of millions of Americans to somehow buy into his own delusions of competance. He never accomplished a single valuable thing in his entire life. He was coddled and buttered-up by those who surrounded him from birth on. Today he is asked to lead a nation in crisis and is simply not capable. Play-acting is not enough, we need a responsible adult leading the nation, not a fool and a crook.

I tuned into Fox to see if the trend would continue. I guess Murdoch must have gotten to them, they had changed completely by the time I saw them. They declared the improved circumstances at the Superdome as a "miracle." Rivera displayed his uncommon ablity to make anything seem trivial; "what a difference a day makes" he chimed.

I also caught a Fox bit where Brit Hume excoriated the Dems. for making this a "political" issue. I guess we are not supposed to hold our government to account, that's not patriotic. What a bunch of motherfuckers.
