Just heard this on Limbaugh. Seems that Sens. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are backing off plans for an independent commission on the federal government's response to the Katrina hurricane. They must realize that their Dem buddies in Louisiana will be found incompetent and Bush will be shown as proactive. Fucking political bullshit!

Nancy Pelosi is not a Senator. She is the top Democrat in the House.

Of course they are now backing off because the blame is starting to shift from the Federal government to the local government as more details come out. I noticed that even on CNN and MSNBC all evening yesterday and last night. Even the Aaron Brown show highlighted that most of the failures that resulted in the greatest loss were a result of local and state authorities.

I also heard another report on MSNBC in which Joe Scarborough hit the nail directly on the head when asked his opinion about the response and whether FEMA officials were incompotent. He said the following:

"I have a hard time believing Michael Brown of FEMA became incompetent overnight. He did an excellent job during last year's 4 hurricanes. So what else changed between those hurricanes and this one? The difference is the state and local leadership. Jeb Bush did an excellent job with those hurricanes last year. That was the difference. There was no change in how FEMA dealt with hurricanes from last year. The difference is simply the difference in the leadership in Florida versus Louisiana."

I nearly cheered when I heard that because that's quite possibly the most truthful statement I have heard regarding this whole situation.

Tit for tat --- Get rid of Brown and we'll back off on the commission, all in the same day. Coincidence, I think not. Brown is the fallguy, I guarantee it.

I guarantee that the liberal news media, which is pretty much all of them, will soon start with the "there's no need to blame anyone" slant as they actually do their homework to find out about who did what and what really happened and as they scramble to create cover for “their” politicians.

Bush is number 6 g-dammit!!!!

www.fema.gov/library/dproc.shtm

From the FEMA website:

An Emergency Declaration is more limited in scope and without the long-term federal recovery programs of a Major Disaster Declaration. Generally, federal assistance and funding are provided to meet a specific emergency need or to help prevent a major disaster from occurring.

The Major Disaster Process

A Major Disaster Declaration usually follows these steps:

1. Local Government Responds, supplemented by neighboring communities and volunteer agencies. If overwhelmed, turn to the state for assistance;

2. The State Responds with state resources, such as the National Guard and state agencies;

3. Damage Assessment by local, state, federal, and volunteer organizations determines losses and recovery needs;

4. A Major Disaster Declaration is requested by the governor, based on the damage assessment, and an agreement to commit state funds and resources to the long-term recovery;

5. FEMA Evaluates the request and recommends action to the White House based on the disaster, the local community and the state's ability to recover;

6. The President approves the request or FEMA informs the Governor it has been denied. This decision process could take a few hours or several weeks depending on the nature of the disaster.
