No, Right there, You just lied again.

I hate to score cheap political points off humanitarian disaster, so I’m going to make it clear that I don’t believe crank about the response to Katrina being slow because of federal-state-local confusion (ie federalism).,1096,0_682_4524,00.html#4524

In fact FEMA is authorized to just ignore the Constitution when it needs to get something done. And this clearly where that applies.

Reaction was slow because certain people up top simply did not give a fig.

But federalism is being used as an excuse for why the response was slow, and a certain percentage of Americans are going to believe that. We need to get rid of these BS reasons that our elected officials have for not doing their job, because they just use them to evade accountability when things mess up.
