    Giuliani.

    Between Bush strumming a guitar yesterday, the governor breaking up on tv, and the mayor not getting much done, it really brings to light how important it was to have someone who didn't have his head up his ass in 2001 take charge.

    Is that why he put his OEM center across the street from the WTC? :confused:

    Seriously, I thought a lot about 9/11 and Katrina. It is hard to compare the two events. While Giuliani did an amazing job, there were zero survivors and almost no casulties to deal with. Even if you factor in search and rescue, the whole thing wrapped up in two weeks, with just the clean up which only affect a 10 block radius.

    Katrina had a couple of days of evacuation, a day of the hurricane, and now 3 days of post hurricane flooding. In a week or so, the evacuees will be returning to destroyed roads and homes.

    I don't know Ray Nagin that well, but it is hard to compare the two tragedies. Would you want Giuliani running the show, of course, but the cities are different and so are the problems.

    Oh, this thread isn't about what I thought it was going to be about.

    I was going to say "Scarlett Johannsen," but, then again, she looked good before the hurricane, too.

    Exactly. Unless I was one of the pawns due to be sacrificed, I'd rather be a piece in a Giuliani plan than Mr. Crying on camera's sh1at.
