Fire Them, or Resign Mr. President!

Seems like Hurricane Katrina is an opportunity to pose for some photos. Better to have these rescue units occupied with a photo session than have them out saving lives.

But what's a little delay as tens of thousands drown in their attics compared to having a photo session with the heads of Homeland Security?

Psst.., these fellas need to be canned. President Bush needs to step up to the plate, and do what presidents have been doing since the establishment of the office itself, and that's fire some good ole boys for the sake of the administration.

With the number of dead possibly in the tens of thousands it may be the worst disaster to hit the United States in its history. In the coming months most certainly investigations will occur as to how it is this disaster was allowed to happen, and how our nation was so ill prepared once it did.

If President Bush continues to believe that his fake southern drawl, and good ole boy charm will save him from the coming torrent of due criticism he's in for quite a surprise.

Someone in his clique needs to step up, and advise him, that it's time for him to get angry, and fire those who he trusted to tell him the truth about HomeLand Security.

We in the private sector never feel secure in our jobs - we take it for granted that we may be downsized, or eliminated for under performance. Millions of hardworking folk lose their jobs every year, it's just a fact of life. But President Bush doesn't like to offend any of his close, and trusted advisors - he's a friendly, and loyal guy.

Can you see Donald Trump keeping these fellas in his organization after such a disasterous performance?

If the President of the United States of America can't bare to offend his buddies, Michael Chertoff, and Michael D. Brown, by making an example out of those who have failed to protect this nation, then he should resign.

Just wanted to add this to my blog posting:

Fire the heads of FEMA, and HomeLand Security NOT The rescue workers.

They're incompetent, and wasted a lot of time which certainly led to many deaths.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and introducing me to your excellent one in the process!

I'm afraid FEMA's been worse than incompetent; they've been outright liars! Chertoff (or maybe it was Brown) defended the Feds' slow response by saying "you can't fly helicopters in a hurricane."

Of course, the whole tragedy took place after once the hurricane was gone--Chertoff surely knows this. So his excuse isn't even on a par with "the dog ate my homework."

If you haven't yet, check out the heartrending "Open Letter to the President" published by the New Orleans Times-Picayune. In very measured, yet anguished, language, they condemn the Feds' total abandonment of their city.
