I noticed you blatantly ignore the fact that local jurisdictions don't have the resources to deal with devastating events like Katrina. If local jurisdictions did have the resources and ability then FEMA would go out of business. From floods,tornados, to hurricanes that bring that kind of devastation,the Fed always takes lead,always has. Guess who was foolish enough to think like you do? GWB. Hence why he caught the brunt of the blame.
