  • Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré led Task Force Katrina in the aftermath of the hurricane that struck the Gulf Coast in 2005.


    Yes, tell us how to run a disaster recovery response.

    He's the one who got the job of cleaning up the mess left behind by Katrina, Brownie and four decades worth of local incompetence and corruption...were you expecting to trust maybe Ray Nagin's judgment instead? Brownie's? Oprah's?
  • I'm not sure I see any real criticism of the federal response in there; it seems to be questioning why New York isn't letting the federal government help more.
  • His comments are aimed at NY's response more than NJ or the Fed. One does wonder why Cuomo hasn't called for more NY NG troops when people still don't have food/water/power at their community.
  • I'd trade 10 four stars for one of this guy.

    my experience with living in NY is that it is a money grubbing shiathole that does as little as possible for the citizenry.

    Maybe Subby's stuck on stupid?

    And maybe, just maybe the response isn't as big as the one for Katrina because NY and NJ got hammered, but not on the scale of Katrina.
  • I am forced to conclude; Obama hates white people.

    / I keed, I keed
  • FEMA typically gets high ratings for their handling of a disaster right after it happens. As the recovery goes on, opinions tend to sour.
  • Obama hates orange people.

    Yes, but you can't get clicks without blaming the ebil ebil Feds.
  • THIS IS OBAMA'S KATRINA'S KATRINA!
  • well look at the area that the hurricane hit, and there you go.
  • Where is the command center? D.C.
    Who is in charge? POTUS
    Where is the National Guard? Recovering from shooting students at Kent State.
  • I remember first hearing about this guy during Katrina. Ordering troops to lower weapons aimed at civilians because they were "on a rescue mission, damnit!" It's good to see he's still a John Wayne dude who gets stuff done.

    /salute.
  • heck of a job "brownie"!!

    The media also did a great job of hiding the cluster fark until their boy was elected.

    I snrked.

    And as much as possible *TO* the citizenry.
  • People have a lot of outrage depending on who is available to blame.

    Your a idiot.

    yeah, the liberal media conspiracy... you should only trust right wing news, look how accurate they were with the election results. they never lie.

    If you look at FoxNews's polls before the election, they always reported a very close race. Besides, we all knew that it was about turnout. Republicans didn't get their supporters out there to vote. That's about it. I think the disconnect was looking at polls based on 2008 turnouts and wondering, "Will the Democrats be able to repeat that turnout?" They didn't quite do it, but Republicans failed to get close to their 2008 turnout also. Some just didn't believe there would be anywhere near the Dem turnout in 2008 and looked to previous elections for some balance.
  • Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré sounds racist
  • I don't think he's properly taking in to account the differences between New Orleans and NYC. For all its faults, NYC has a much better functioning state apparatus than New Orleans had. More National Guard troops might possibly not help as much in NYC.

    I actually let my company know I was happy to volunteer to go up and help our office clean up/recover. They told me know, they have plenty of manpower already. In fact, some of our associates were spending a lot of time in the office because they didn't have power yet restored at home.

    I tend to think the Lt. Gen. learned a thing or two about disaster response from Katrina. His opinions are grounded in experience, so I'll take his word for it.

    /don't put on the blinders because they criticized your guy
