Give The Mayor Of New Orleans Credit Not Blame
There is on point to make for the Mayor's response to the hurricane that is very overlooked. Mayor Nagin was actively trying to address the situation in the best way he could. At times, he appeared desperate and on the verge of a breakdown because of the lack of support he had received up to that point. To add to all of this, Mr., Nagin had to watch friends and citizens die as their bodies floated by in a mounting body of floodwater. The Mayor was not taking pictures or in a plane looking down on the victims. In hindsight, we can look back at what the Mayor could have done better but we should not use that hindsight to spin blame. We know where the blame should be, and the American people must have the courage to state the truth. The Feds blew it.
