Awesome if you are prejudiced.
As anyone knows, it always takes 2 or 3 days for federal forces to arrive on the scene in force after a disaster. The federal government is a huge machine that takes a long time to orient itself and move men and material across the country.
The primary responsibility for those first few days rests with the state and local authorities to ensure that they can hang on for those couple of days. The state governor has full authority to mobilise the National Guard. The city mayor (especially in a zone known to be vulnerable to disaster, such as NO) has the responsibility to ensure that evacuation plans are up to date, and that his law enforcement facilities are fully mobilized, capable and motivated to provide security for those initial days until reinforcements can arrive.
The mayor of New Orleans did a half-assed job of the evacuation, in spite of having at least two days' warning, and a full day to execute the evacuation order when it was given on Sunday morning (after Bush urged the Governor to do it). His administration seemed more concerned with lining their pockets than preparing evac procedures and ensuring that his police force were motivated and equipped. The city apparently had no boats - something you would expect to be obvious in a zone living below sea level and sandwiched between 3 bodies of water at a higher elevation. His police officers were so ill-trained and poorly paid and motivated that most of them went AWOL when the going got tough.
The governor could have sent in the national guard ahead of the storm, but did not. Every time she gets in front of the camera, it seems like she's fighting back tears. What wonderful leadership!
Bush actually did more than either one of these people - declaring a state of emergency well before the storm struck ensuring the slow wheels of the federal government started moving in the right direction. He was the one who urged the evacuation of NO. Bush deserves some blame as CinC for not ensuring that the military could move faster, and to ensure that at least initial supply drops were made on all high-ground points where people would obviously congregate. He also deserves some blame for not fully funding the levee reinforcements (although I understand that one such program has already been approved and fully funded, but work had not yet begun.)
And let's not forget the dimwits who decided to stay in NO after the order to evacuate. They should have been forced out, and all those people without transport or money to leave should have been loaded up in chartered buses, flatbed trucks, and whatever else the city could get their hands on.
So there is plenty of blame to pass around, but most of all it belongs on the heads of the Governor and the Mayor. The Mayor in particularly has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be utterly incompetent - His sudden loud and outraged demands for help on Wednesday followed two days of him saying that he was handling things. Clearly he's trying to cover up how incompetent he has been by blaming it on everyone else. He deserves to be stripped of office, at the very least.
But in the cartoons above, all I see is "Bush's Fault". As usual.
