Brownie Calls for Chertoff's resignation

When is Michael Brown, former FEMA director, going to learn that we simply don’t care what he has to say. He has lied to us all a number of occasions. Someone needs to take the microphone away from this man.

The Associated Press has released a video which reveals that President Bush was briefed about the severity of hurricane Katrina. Again, this is not news. There was no doubt in my mind that he was briefed. The big question is did he hear and did he understand.

There are calls for a special commission to investigate the failures in Hurricane Katrina. There is no need for an investigation. We have all of the information that we need. Federal, State and local officials failed in planning and in implementing a plan to help the residents of the Gulf Coast. Republicans and Democrats failed.

The real tragedy is that the failure continues today. New Orleans is allowed to writh in agony. we either need to completely destroy it or rebuild it. Right now we’re doing neither and it is incredibly painful to watch and probably, most likely, more painful to live through.

  1. Communities, cities grow organicly. I doubt that anyone can just go in and rebuild quickly after such catastrophic damage. Where does one start, homes with-out schools or businesses or businesses with-out workers because of the lack of housing, hospitals, schools and most conviences of life? We have many residents in Houston from Tulane. They aren’t going back. Many New Orleaneans have decided to settle in various parts of the country.

    I don’t think that abandoning New Orleans is the feds call. Rebuilding will be limited and slow.
