Is everyone in Washington trying to prove that they are still relevant?
Now FEMA has had to stoop to holding a fake press conference.
Everyone is putting their ideas forth on the lessons that were learned from the handling of the emergency created by Hurricane Katrina, so here's mine.
The most important lesson that California and every other American citizen learned from Hurricane Katrina was to "handle it yourself" and not to wait for FEMA.
Massive Kudos to the Governator!
Maybe we should reconsider the law on presidential eligibility!
an excerpt from:
FEMA's fake 'news conference' - First Read - msnbc.com
On Tuesday, FEMA held what was called a "news briefing" on the California fires, but the questions asked did not come from reporters. They were asked instead by FEMA staffers.
Apparently, the FEMA briefing was called with little lead-time and reporters didn't get there fast enough. Instead of acknowledging that reporters were not there they apparently pretended and even used the typical practice of calling a "last question."
The briefer, FEMA's Deputy Administrator Harvey Johnson, did not indicate that the questions were coming from staff who were in essence playing reporters. Six questions were asked and the phrasing and subject matter were not typical for a news briefing give and take.
