Take charge. Send in federal troops and take the situation away from the local authorities, who in my opinion don't seem to have much of a clue. Clamp down ruthelessly on looters, givin the troops orders to shoot looters (except for food) on sight. He shouldn't be a distant figure in this crisis, its not going to go over well in the press.

The same shit he's doing right now. Declare a federal emergency. Call in FEMA and have them work in close kindship with private organizations. Coordinate Nat. Guard and Fed troops to help in SAR and security.

It's exactly the same thing previous presidents did, it's what Bush will do, it's what future presidents will do.

The question isn't what I want you want him to do. It's how you will twist what he and every other president does into some political situation when in fact it's about life and death.

get all able bodied armed men down to the disaster areas to help secure the peace.

get on the phone with foreign nationals and tell them to cough up the cash.

tell greenspan to cut interest rates to 0% until further notice.

cut fuel tax

stop additives in fuel to stablize price

unload half of the fuel reserve


Tell all the tree huggers to GFT. Crack open Alaska and build a much needed super refinery. As for the baby seals, well... we'll suck the oil outa them also, so nothing is wasted.

I am tired of all this Bush bashing. I was present during a conference call on the Sunday prior to the storm. President Bush spoke on this conference call (a president has never been on one of these calls before as far as I know). At that point he commited all the resources needed. A disaster like this has never happened before. I am confident all the things that can be done are being done.

Don't worry, as soon as the damage is assessed (like when the water fully receeds from the refineries/pump stations) there will be contractors there working 24/7 getting those places back online.

People are ready to bust-ass and get things going. What can the president do? Would you like to see him down there shoveling out mud? He's basically said all resources are going there and that a plan has to be established. You just can't run in there half-cocked. What are we going to do about NO and the many other cities that are basically destroyed?

Don't take that the wrong way. I'm sure the oil companies will be working 24/7, but with who knows how many platforms damaged, I'm sure their resources will be stretched. No, I don't expect GW to shovel mud. However... I have had some er...let's say dealings... with PEMA, and I'm not sure they could find their way out of a paper bag, so I don't see how FEMA could be much different. The utilities have cut manpower over the years to the bone and they do not have the resources to get power back in a timely manner. Therefore my suggestion to add to what GW wants to do, not criticize him. The man will get enough of that from the people who made no attempt to take care of themselves and the Larry King types wanting to know why the levies weren't cat 5 capable.

I would get EVERYONE out of town and give the place back to the gators. Move the entire fucking city 40 miles north & start over. Make N.O. a National Underwater Park & sell rides on glass bottom boats.

Oh yea, kill EVERY looter.

That place is a cess pool of humanity and this may be the best thing to happen to the place. Now, they have a chance to start over. But to rebuild there? Just walk away & cut your losses.

Link Posted: 8/31/2005 7:56:42 PM EDT
I would declare a state of emerengcy, plant landmines along the sothern US border and deploy The National Guard along our new southertn US DMZ. it would keep any looters from LA from escaping the country.

Seroiusly.

Oh, and I'd give the order to shoot looters, too. Not after they clear out the sporting goods section of every Walmart, but before, dammit! :)

1. First martial law in N.O. and Biloxi.
2. open up oil reserve
3. Issue EO bypassing enviornmental regs till your administration is through
4. Make massive ultra low interests loans to alternative energies suppliers Ethanol Bio-Diesel
5. Find OPEC counties willing to deal directly, bypassing OPEC
6. Ratchet up political pressure in the Gulf particularly in Saudi Arabia.
7. Assasinate Iranian Government, and support U.S. friendly COUP>>We currently get 0 oil from Iran<<
8. Bring Venezuela/Chavez to an understanding(HEEL)
9. Re-do #4
10. Consolidate down to 10 or less fuel blends/mixes

I think Bush (or his advisors) got caught napping on this one.
The USS Comfort should have been ready to leave port the day the hurricane stuck, or sooner.

Other Naval vessels with Rotary-wing aircraft and massive water purifying facilites should have been there a day or two sooner.

This whole "3,000 lb sandbag" thing should have been initiated the instant the levee broke. You mean to tell me that noone ever thought about how to fix the levee in a situation like this?

I know, these things aren't GWB's fault, and I'm Monday morning quarterbacking.

I would send in a stronger military force though, assuming it legal to do so.

What would I do,well first I would remind everyone that Glaciar park is going to have to change it's name because there are no glaciars there anymore!!!

And Mount Killamanjaro has no snow on it,and the North Pole is melting(global warming) and the Earth cools it's self when it gets too hot(hurricaines) so it doesn't take the Earth as long as it did before!

So quit burnning so much fossel fuel,less gas burning cars(car pool,bike,jog) and don't live on any coasts!!!

There is lots of land in Idaho,utah,north and south dakota,repopulation away from the coasts is a must!!!!

Everything you have delt with now will be a repeat(I repeat) a repeat!!!

The Earth will cool it's self(you must stay out of its way)!!!


Your President Bob
