Governor Hogan: I Wanted To Send In the National Guard Immediately, But Mayor Space-To-Destroy Dragged Her Feet

Asked why he was slow in sending the National Guard-- and can you believe the I Believe Trayvon media is complaining about a too slow law enforcement response?! -- Maryland's Governor Hogan wasn't having it.

Some questioned why it took so long for the Guard to be activated, to which Hogan responded that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was slow to make the request. He said he executed the request 30 seconds after it was made. Rawlings-Blake had initially said she wanted to give to protestors the "space to destroy" their environment.

...

"When the mayor called me, which quite frankly we were glad that she finally did, instantly we signed the executive order. We already had our entire team prepared," he said. "We were trying to get in touch with the mayor for quite some time, she finally made that call and we immediately took action."

In Katrina, the Democrat Mayor, the Democrat Governor, and the Republican President could all be argued to have some degree of authority for the response to the emergency -- but the Mayor and the Governor had the most, and the President could not act without their asking.

Nevertheless, the media decided the President was guilty.

In this case, the Mayor is Democratic, the President is Democratic, and the Governor is Republican.

Who will the media decide was too slow in reacting this time, I wonder.

By the way, I just heard from Limbaugh: You know where Mayor Space-to-Destroy graduated from?

Oberlin.


Update: This update was in the last post, but in case you didn't see it, here it is again:

It's all Republicans' fault, says Obama.


As JWF's article notes, what's foremost on Obama's mind is "restraint" by police, because so far, that Space to Destroy policy is working great.


Oh, and there's this:
