Road Home, Blanco, etc

Kathleen Blanco seems to be whining again. I would like to know why she can't just buckle down and get to work fixing the Road Home program and get over the political posturing:

Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco called on Congress Monday to create a bipartisan commission to investigate whether White House politics played a role in slowing the federal response to Hurricane Katrina.

An agitated Gov. Kathleen Blanco said Wednesday it was inexplicable that President Bush failed to mention the Gulf Coast during his State of the Union address when the region is still struggling with its hurricane recovery.

Gov. Blanco is trying to blame Congress and the Bush administration for the excruciating delays in the state's Road Home program.

Nope, she's whining about Mississippi and how they are getting more than us. Waaaa! I am exhausted with her ineptitude and whiney ways. Almost 18 months after the storm a lightbulb goes on and she decides to help small businesses recover from their losses. In trying to create the illusion that her LRA program is "on track" indefensible errors have been made, causing anguish for people who lost so much from Katrina. She wants to spend the state's "surplus" like Imelda Marcos at a shoe store.
I could go on, but you get the picture.

Here's a link to the Mississippi equivalent of the Road Home program. Their facts and figures laid out and updated on a weekly basis. Compare their stats to Louisiana's program.

If Michael and Therese Homan are any examples , Louisiana's program needs to take a "working with people" course. Their experience is inexcusable.
I have to agree with CB.
