On one hand Mayor Nagin has said the federal presence proves how safe the city is after widespread looting and violence in the first days after Hurricane Katrina. And on his plan to bring back over 100,000 people this week he said "My thought has always been that if we have this many resources in the city working cooperatively, then we could correct just about any situation that was out there."
But noting that FEMA Director, Admiral Allen, had urged residents not to return, the mayor said: "The admiral's a good man. I respect him. But when he starts talking to the citizens of New Orleans, that's kind of out of his lane. There's only one mayor of New Orleans and I'm it."
What about his tearful plea for help from the Federal government when HIS city was flooding? Where are the resources working in HIS city from? And who does he think is making HIS city safe? And now there is another threat to Louisana and Mayor Nagin has called another MANDATORY evacuation. WHAT? It worked well the last time, didn't it?
You can't have your cake and eat it too!
