Excuse Me, But Doesn't the Governor Mobilize The National Guard? | Main | Bush I, Bush II, and Clinton Named As Accomplices In Murder Of John F. Kennedy Junior

Must Read: La. Governor Refused President's Request To Bring In Feds

Enough is Enough, by In the Bullpen.

KEY QUOTE:

Behind the scenes, a power struggle emerged, as federal officials tried to wrest authority from Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco (D). Shortly before midnight Friday, the Bush administration sent her a proposed legal memorandum asking her to request a federal takeover of the evacuation of New Orleans, a source within the state’s emergency operations center said Saturday.

The administration sought unified control over all local police and state National Guard units reporting to the governor. Louisiana officials rejected the request after talks throughout the night, concerned that such a move would be comparable to a federal declaration of martial law. Some officials in the state suspected a political motive behind the request. “Quite frankly, if they’d been able to pull off taking it away from the locals, they then could have blamed everything on the locals,” said the source, who does not have the authority to speak publicly.

Okay, now I'm getting goddamned angry.

A Republican President tried to wrest power from a lackadaisical and incompetenent Democratic governor. The Democratic governor refused to allow this -- her right under the Constitution.

But goddamnit, how the fuck is that Bush's fault then?

The Blame Game: Reasonable voices are suggesting we not play the blame game. There are, after all, more important matters to attend to at the moment.

Well, that's a nice sentiment, but Mayor Nagin, Governor Blanco, Jesse Jackson and Michael Moore started the blame game within hours of the storm's landfall, and they, along with their cheerleaders in the liberal spirit squad in the mainstream media, have run up the score in this game 37-0 before conservatives even had their helmets on.

The blame game is already in the third quarter. If we're going to correct the lies and distortions of the liberal legacy media, we'd better start playing too.

More important though is the relief and life saving game, of course. Contribute.
