After Hurricane, New Orleans Faces Worse Disaster - Jimmy Carter

Haven't the people of New Orleans suffered enough? Shouldn't we be showing them compassion and giving them hope? Wouldn't it be best if they had someone competent in charge of restoring their city? Well, if the answer to all of those is "yes," then why in the world would a former 9/11 commissioner recommend Jimmy Carter to be in charge of rebuilding New Orleans?

From the Drudge Report:

This morning on Fox's 'Fox and Friends,' former Indiana Democrat congressman and 9/11 commissioner Tim Roemer called on President Bush to name former President Jimmy Carter to the head of efforts to rebuild New Orleans.

Roemer told the stunned hosts: 'The second thing we should do is put somebody like former President Jimmy Carter in charge of rebuilding New Orleans.'

How can Carter rebuild a city when he spends his time hammering at a White House? He might let the United Nations determine the future use of New Orleans for the "world community." On the other hand, if Kerry were President, he might want to donate the Louisiana Purchase back to France while he apologizes for messing it up. At least we should be glad that no one suggested Al Gore, who could declare New Orleans as "wetlands" and make it a nationally protected wilderness.

The left never ceases to amaze.

Hey, how about Kofi? He might be free soon.

Hey Woody
It is to bad you could never grow up and become a comedian. If you did you would starve to death. Did you ever think if John Kerry was President , he would have appointed a competent Director of Homeland Security, who would have selected a competent FEMA Director, rather than back filling positions with campaign workers. Do you not think George W. has embarrased this country enough. This guy is going to go down in history as the most stupid President just behind Herbert Hoover

Gary, where do I begin? First, Kerry didn't pick any good campaign staff at all. He didn't pick a good vice presidential candidate and he damn sure didn't pick any good advisors. He picked a campaign theme with a silly salute and you see where that got him.

I am no fan of Browne or Chertoff, but I don't see Kerry having done one damn bit better. Oh, and by the way, talk about comedians with you using a fake url? Yeah bud, total honesty there.

Maybe another horse association has a lawyer they'd like to unload on Bush. I mean the last one did such a bang up job, how could Bush not appoint another?

Carter would be great right now as an advisor during this time of high oil prices and dimished refing capabilities. Who knows more about gas shortages and screwing up the Middle East than Jimmy Carter?

The only thing he'd be good for in NO is building houses.

Ever notice how even crappy Dem presidents become saviors AFTER they are out of office?

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 9) - Al Gore helped airlift some 270 Katrina evacuees on two private charters from New Orleans, acting at the urging of a doctor who saved the life of the former vice president's son. Al Gore underwrote the cost of two charter flights, which flew hurricane victims out of New Orleans....

On Sept. 1, three days after Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast, [Greg] Simon [president of the Washington-based activist group FasterCures] learned that Dr. David Kline, a neurosurgeon who operated on Gore's son, Albert, after a life-threatening auto accident in 1989, was trying to get in touch with Gore. Kline was stranded with patients at Charity Hospital in New Orleans....Gore responded immediately, telephoning Kline and agreeing to underwrite the $50,000 each for the two flights....

Meanwhile, George Bush spends nearly a week asleep at the switch (re: Newsweek article), while Mommy (let them eat cake) Bush states that the `underpriviledged' are making out okay now that their being transported to the Astrodome and other evacuation sites.

The right never ceases to amaze me.

Interesting that Nagin was the one who suggested Honore.

How about anyone EXCEPT a politician? That way, you guys wouldn't be sniping at each other, for one thing. Good job, Gary. You started it.

Hey, Jim. Don't forget the millions that Clinton has made in speaking fees and the payments he received in China after he gave them our missle technology to aim their ICBMs at us.

Bush 41 goes overseas, represents America, and throws up. Carter goes overseas, does not represent America, and makes everyone here throw up.

Anyway, I tried to present the side of the left in an entry today. Fair & Balanced, you know.
