The gang at the lake has been noting the massive memory failure among the Democrats concerning how it was they who insisted, against White House wishes, that FEMA be put into Homeland Security as part of the response to the 9/11 report. Everything had to be enacted or the country was going to fall apart. They insisted upon another layer of administration. As any real conservative knows, the more layers the less can be done. Each layer protects itself and its interests.
The larger mystery is why the Republicans are not exploiting this issue. While many of them were with the Democrats, the White House and some Republicans were not. Now the Democrats and the Media, from whom no straight answer can be expected, are continuing to pound the post New Orlenas mantra that only bigger government can save us. The only thing that can save us is what some of the Louisiana folk outside New Orleans can proudly tell us: Be prepared to do it yourself. If you relie on government, you will sink no matter which party is in charge.
Of course, the Democrat Party is the party of those who believe that no one can do it themselves. There is no flow of money through them if people actually do it themselves.
