NAGIN: I need reinforcements, I need troops, man. I need 500 buses, man. We ain't talking about -- you know, one of the briefings we had, they were talking about getting public school bus drivers to come down here and bus people out here.

I'm like, "You got to be kidding me. This is a national disaster. Get every doggone Greyhound bus line in the country and get their asses moving to New Orleans."

That's -- they're thinking small, man. And this is a major, major, major deal. And I can't emphasize it enough, man. This is crazy.

I've got 15,000 to 20,000 people over at the convention center. It's bursting at the seams. The poor people in Plaquemines Parish. ... We don't have anything, and we're sharing with our brothers in Plaquemines Parish.

It's awful down here, man.

Above quote from transcript of radio interview with Nagin

Here's half those buses fooknut....

Been discussed several times over, but yes, that's part of of the problem. Further digging will show that those very buses were a part of the evacuation plan that was never put into effect, even with a mandatory evac. Wonder who will get the blame for that?

Yeah, right he said "bursting" which is the proper grammar. Transcript should probably say bustin'

Oh yeah--all those flooded buses are Bush's fault too. He drove every one of those buses into the flood zone.

Ah, but have you even heard about the existing NO school buses on the media? No one will even know!

If I were Bush I would tell him to shut up before he pulls everything and everyone out.

Isn't this the second time you've posted this regarding the busses?

Who else? BUSH OF COURSE!


It's really disgusting to see this idiot cussing on TV and talking like a street thug. Supposedly these people are supposed to be calm and level headed but as we, it's no surprise what kind of mayor got elected in a town where looters shoot at rescuers.
