One Of The Bush Administration's Biggest Debacles

From Lack of Katrina talk in election worries Louisiana: Democrats don't use hurricane debacle as fodder; issue on back burner? by Russ Britt:

"They've all ignored us, really," said Jeff Crouere, a political talk-show host in New Orleans. "There's a statement here and there. They fly by."

What surprises Crouere more than anything is that neither Clinton nor Obama seem to be paying much attention to Katrina response, widely acknowledged to be one of the Bush administration's worst blunders.

"I would have thought Democrats would be pouncing on this issue," he said. "I'm shocked they're not."

It's quickly becoming apparent to New Orleanians that 2 1/2 years after Katrina deluged three-fourths of their city, a slew of problems with slow-footed bureaucracies, patchwork hurricane protection, exorbitant insurance costs and skittish residents afraid to rebuild may not be resolved with the next presidency - regardless of who wins.
