New Orleans Mayor Praises President Bush

The Democrat Mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, disses a fellow Democrat, Governor Kathleen Blanco, while praising President Bush as someone who "made things happen." No love has been lost between Nagin and Blanco going back far before the hurricane (Blanco promised to get even with Nagin after he supported her Republican opponent for Governor), but this praise for the President provides a bit of an interesting new twist to the ongoing saga related to the response to the hurricane.

Nagin verifies that the Red Cross and Salvation Army were prevented at the state level from providing readily available supplies to the shelters in New Orleans immediately after the hurricane. Those chilling scenes we saw on TV were thus emphatically not the fault of the White House or FEMA.
