If Louisiana’s Democratic Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco could grant New Orleans’ Mayor Ray Nagin’s (also a Democrat) request to send in the National Guard to respond to a crime wave in the Big Easy, why didn’t the Mayor didn’t file a similar request for the Guard’s assistance in evacuating the city last summer as Hurricane Katrina approached?
UPDATE: Michelle finds “interesting . . . the total silence of civil liberties Chicken Littles” while in comment #6 Vera Charles asks:
Is this a war zone with semi automatic weapons? A quagmire?
Isn’t the left concerned the National Guard is being spread too thin?
