There is much talk about “who” is to blame for the hurricane in New Orleans. The MSM is coming down hard on President Bush. There is a lot of good information coming forth throughout the blogosphere.
Here are some of my thoughts;
The storm known as Katrina is 100% responsible for the destruction to property and loss of life.
The Mayor of New Orleans and the other local officials compounded the situation by a factor of 65%.
The governor and state officials contributed an additional 25% to the misery index.
Federal officials added 10% to this mix. (Low for most anything the federal government is involved with.)
I don't think the death toll will be in the 10,000's. Maybe about 300 in New Orleans.
We’ll see how the blame shakes out in the weeks ahead.
