Where's Giuliani When You Need Him?

And now we see why running a city is not as easy as everyone thinks. The mayor in New Orleans just doesn't seem to have the leadership skills that are needed in a time of crisis. It's not a race thing. It's a skill thing. The New Orleans mayor should have had a plan, and 5 back up plans. He should have had his police trained so that they knew the plans backwards and forwards.

Where is Giuliani when you need him?

And to the people who are blaming Bush... Grow up you nimrod. BUSH IS NOT GOD!!!! He cannot stop the wind and the rain. He cannot change the speeds on a truck that is carrying supplies to the area. He cannot get in a boat and rescue each person personally. He is not the savior of the world and he should not be held to that standard. Ironic how the left are atheists yet pretend that Bush is simply holding back his omniscient and omnipresent, sovereign power just to spite people. Wake up and smell the leadership that is George W. Bush...A man that will go down in the history books as one of the greats. Remember that I said that!

Aaron, you hit the nail on the head. This is going to turn into something totally different than what it really is, and it's a sad sad thing. Bringing up the race issue is NOT going to solve this problem.

A - Frickin - MEN! i've been saying this since Monday. Nagin is no Guliani. Yes, he's overwhelmed. Gov Blanco only asked for Fed Troops Tuesday at 5:15 CST. Nagin would not even let the LA Guard carry nor carry loaded weapons into the city!

Great point! I thought of Guliani earlier this week too.

When I think of Rudy, I think of a leader who didn't lose it, even after almost being caught in the collapse of the towers. I'm sure he felt the frustration of all the things that went wrong, both leading up to the attack and in the immediate aftermath.

The mayor of New Orleans can be forgiven for his comments, but he can be criticized for his lack of leadership skills, as you correctly do in this post.

Keep up the great work, Aaron. I won't be able to get online again for a while (see my latest post at LEAVWORLD), but I'm reassured by knowing that you, and many others are echoing the sentiments that I would express.
