NO Mayor Ray Nagin At It Again

Tue Mar 07, 2006 8:10 am

The highly quotable mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, has done it again. Check out this beauty, talking about the upcoming New Orleans mayoral election:http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/3701694.html

Excerpt:
"This process that's before us is one that I'm getting more uncomfortable with every day. This is not about Ray Nagin," he told the group. "There is potential for major changes in the political structure."

Nagin noted that 23 candidates entered the mayoral fray before the registration deadline last week.

"Very few of them look like us," he told the almost totally black crowd of about 200 persons who attended the meeting at the NAACP Family & Technology Center on Fannin."


This idiot's just begging to lose the election.

Obviously a referance to the third or fourth arm some NO residents have sprouted due to the toxic sludge after the flooding.  sarcastic 

Saddly enough... I think there is going to be another term of Nagin.

I'm thinking he'll likely make the 2-person runoff election, then get blown out (by either Forman or Landrieu).

Just how blatantly racist can get man get? First - the "Chocolate City" bullshit and now this.

What really fries my ass is all of the people of color that seem to support him - but would absolutely jump up and down, sceram and yell, call Jesse and his other attention whore buddy, if a "white" person made a similar remark. It'd be all over the damn news so fast it'd make one's head spin.

I think the people in New Orleans - that vote for this racist, non-performer - deserve what they get. . . . and it will be my LAST visit to NOLA . . . and I like the place . . .

Can you imagine the uproar if a similar remark had been made by the white Mayor of say - Biloxi, Mississippi - in regards to city?!

Amen!

What does he think he is doing exactly? Racism is not only against Blacks, it can also be against White people, Hispanics, or any other group! He's an idiot... Hopefully he loses and thinks about what he says. Kerry did the same thing during the 2004 election, say what the group you're presently in front of wants to hear, have some values Nagin, get a backbone!

Let us rememeber that when common sense and brains were passed out Ray Nagin was absent. He has proved that he is not only incompetent as to running a city but pretty much ignorant. NO has a tough road ahead and re-electing some idiot that blames everything on other people and says things so stupid that even Howard Dean would be suprised is not a good first step.

There is nothing wrong with asbestos, as long as you take proper precautions when working with it.

My dad worked with and around asbestos for the better part of 40 years - in the boiler house of a large oil refinery. He's going to be 80 years old this May, and is healthy as a horse.

 rotfl  and you think I take anything YOU say seriously? You, Mr."All the Ski Rersorts At Lake Tahoe are On the California Side" - wrong, of course. You, Mr. "I have a JD and LLM, and I'm in the PhD program," only to find out you are still in law school and haven't yet earned the JD and masters degree, so you can't be in a PhD program?

Just so we can cut to the chase, I agree with Professor Lester Brickman from Cardozo Law School, who says "Asbestos litigation today is, for the most part, a massively fraudulent enterprise that can rightfully take its place among the pantheon of such great American swindles as the Yazoo land frauds, Credit Mobilier and Teapot Dome."

The asbestos bar is as sleazy a group of lawyers as you will find in American law. If it isn't Baron & Budd from Dallas coaching clients how to provide testimony against asbestos defendants, it's Peter Angelos, whose lucrative relationships with unions result in the steering of potential asbestos plaintiffs to his law firm in exchange for questionable financial relationships with union executives. (That, and the bast*&d kept baseball out of DC for years. For that alone, he deserves a special place down below.)

As Professor Brickman notes:

"Approximately 90% of asbestos claims today largely consists of former industrial and construction workers and others:

(1) recruited by an extensive network of entrepreneurial companies which are employed by lawyers to "screen" hundreds of thousands of potential litigants each year at local union halls, hotel and motel rooms, shopping center parking lots, and other locations throughout the country to assemble the "inventory" that fuels the litigation;

(2) asserting claims of injury though they have no medically cognizable asbestos --related injury and cannot demonstrate any statistically significant increased likelihood of contracting an asbestos-related disease in the future;

(3) these claims are being asserted in a civil justice system that has been drastically altered to accommodate the interests of these litigants and their lawyers by dispensing with many evidentiary requirements and proof of proximate cause, giving rise to what I have termed "special asbestos law;"

I agree. And those plaintiffs who weren't sufficiently warned or protected ought to be compensated. But for those who knew the risks and ignored the safety precautions that were available, tough luck.

And they're all part of the class, getting pennies on the dollar from the settlement while the trial lawyers get the rest. Either that or the man dying of asbestos gets the same portion of the settlement as the man who once-maybe-kinda-was-in-a-room-that-may-have-had-asbestos-possibly...and again, the lawyers make out like Ken Lay before the sh!t hit the fan.

I agree, and I dont like the guy, but I wouldnt be surprised if he won. I am sure there are plenty of people who believe his rhetoric and BS. If he was smart he had the potential to look like the hero in this as Guiliani did post 9-11. He could have brought his city together. But instead he wanted to bitch and moan about what everyone else wasnt doing rather than focusing on what his job was, easing some of the suffering and working to get things back to normal.

They both let down the state of Louisiana and NO. Let us not forget it's GWB's fault though since he doesn't care about black people.  sarcastic

Just stop it. Nagin is an idiot, and a poorly performing idiot.

Just for the record, Bush is currently acting like an idiot, running out of ideas, being tone deaf on the ports deal, and not putting forth any agenda whatsoever in his second term.

Please quote me, Texdravid, Bush Lover on the above. If only certain members would be willing to take on one of their own to the woodshed. I'll keep waiting....

You gotta remember one thing Tex. Ray Nagin is THEIR poorly performing idiot duly elected by the citizens at da voting booth.

Just like DA Eddie Jordan down there in the crescent shitty. A duly elected douchebag. But he's THEIR douchebag, bought and paid for.

FYI-it ain't got nuthin' to do with liberals or lawyers and I don't see the evil hand of Air India here either. It's to do with corruption and Louisiana politics.

Nagin is just another figure in a long history of crooked politics in Louisiana.

I never, ever inferred it. You can read posts by me from way before you even joined this site (or the other one) stating my exact status. In fact, I had no intention of getting an LL.M until very recently.

Anyone who knows politics in New Orleans knows that he is a Republican who called himself a Democrat to get elected. You have any idea who he supported for governor? It wasn't Blanco

I guess this just illustrates typical liberal thinking, you can't really be black unless you agree with everything the democrats have to say. Why don't you just come out and call him an "uncle Tom". Add Mayor Nagin to the list of Sec. Rice and General Powell.
Hypocrisy. It's the new black for liberals.

Did I say I think he was unqualified? Did I had a problem with him calling himself a Democrat? Did I even say I think he was wrong in supporting Bobby Jindal? No. I agree with the policies he put in place pre-Katrina, New Orleans made major strides because of them. I think Kathleen Blanco got elected because she played on the racism of Northern Louisiana to get people to vote against Bobby Jindal, who would have made an excellent governor of this state. In fact, I will vote for him if he runs against her. Ray Nagin is not an Uncle Tom at all, he took on the label he needed to in order to get elected in New Orleans and it worked.

The implication is clear. We know how you lefties view the GOP - we're the ones who own the "plantations".

You know how there is a minimum age to be a president or a mamber of parliamanet. There should be a minimum IQ to be elgiible to be mayor/governer/president. Then this kind of shit could be avoided.

Good job, ANCFlyer.....you did not disappoint!!!

Agreed wholeheartedly that Jindal would have made a better governor...I certainly voted for him. I think the Democratic stronghold that is (or nowadays, was) Orleans Parish was the primary reason Blanco made it in.

Quoting NIKV69 (Reply 31):
Let us not forget that the Governor was just as much to blame. I remember a news conference they did two days before Katrina hit. They both had the look on thier faces (I have no idea what to do look)

That's called the "deer in the headlights look". And Blanco definitely had it. Nagin's pre-Katrina look to me was more of the unprepared rat showing two middle fingers to the hawk swooping in on him .....yet the hawk still devoured him.

He is pandering for votes obviously. He knows that he lost the white vote, so he is trying to get the black vote now at all costs, regardless of the consequences.

It's a shame, really. He did a lot to change the city pre-Katrina...but now, he's just desperate. Pretty pathetic actually.

Big difference though. Nagin had a chance to get out of the way, he had more than enough warning that hurricane was coming. He still dropped the ball, but you can always blame Bush. Everything is his fault.  sarcastic
