Mayor Nagin Blames Bush for Lower Body Count

by Scott Ott

(2005-09-12) -- New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin today blamed President George Bush for the lower-than-expected number of bodies discovered in the receding flood waters, and said it's part of a White House campaign "to prevent black people from getting what they deserve."

Last week, Mayor Nagin predicted that as many as 10,000 corpses would be found due to the Bush administration's slow response to the crisis, however, so far the total number of flood-related deaths is closer to 200.

"We were on track to have the most horrifying natural disaster in America's history," said the mayor, "but Bush knew that would generate huge compassion and lots of cash flowing to this predominantly-black community."

The former cable TV executive said that if the death count remains in the hundreds, rather than thousands, the big question will be 'who benefits?'

"Follow the money," said Mr. Nagin. "Low body-count means less federal aid and less redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor black folks of my city. You don't have to be a cable guy to figure out that this benefits George Bush and his rich cronies."

What the fuck, he should be glad the body count is lower, and Bush had nothing to do with this . It's the local jurisdiction's responsibility to take care of their areas after a disaster. Sure, go to the feds for help, but ultimately, it's the local guys that got to take care of it because it's their JOB.

Whatever happens in the world can be directly related to Global Warming.

And that is Bush's fault.

Of course, you dont really think he is going to man up and take the blame himself, do you?

Hell no, no matter what it is going to be Bush`s fault....

I was about to say, if that's true, the President should oblige him by raising the body count. Starting with Mayor Nagin.

I can't believe even Nagin would be stupid enough to say something like this. I need more proof of the quote.... fullclip

Dammit, not so soon! www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/daily/site_091205/content/stop_the_tape.guest.html

LANDRIEU: I will. I will answer it. I am not going to level criticism at local and state officials. Mayor Nagin and most mayors in this country have a hard time getting their people to work on a sunny day, let alone getting them out of the city in front of a hurricane.
