I don't disagree that sometimes people do have explicitly "evil" intentions, and I will even go so far as to say that political "conspiracies" for some broader, overarching goal do exist here and there.The reality is that these instances are usually the exception rather than the rule.Maybe we should check to see if she got a call from Howard Dean to discuss hurricane response strategy. <g>Most of the time, "screwed up" situations are simply the consequences of errors in judgement,Particularly on the part of the voters.incompetence (from lack of experience, planning, coordination, apathey, stupidity or outright laziness) and/or "nearly impossible" situations. I would say that laziness and apathy are usually the primary drivers.I guess "out of her depth" would be a callous analogy here.I think that a combination of the reasons in the previous paragraph caused the debacle, not any deliberate effort or hidden motive to "hurt someone".I wish I had your faith. I think Nagin and Blanco should be the focus of as much investigative attention as Bush and FEMA.1HF
