Is this supposed to be a question?
We all care about those people down there. They are suffering
and we want to know why it happened.
To varying degrees and for various reasons. Personally, I'm not very interested in all of the minutia of the state and local plans, decisions, etc, because, to put it simply, they don't really affect me. It's the same reason I don't spend day after day focused on the earthquake disaster plans and local politics of San Francisco or the same with Mount Rainier and Seattle. If I'm going to spend time looking at local and state governments and their disaster plans, it will be my own state and local governments.
To answer that question we need to look at the complete situation.
Sure, but it's quite literally not my job to answer all of the questions, and somehow I doubt it's yours.
To only focus on the federal responce will get us nowhere fast.
"Us?" We aren't doing anything here but posting on a forum and I clearly don't expect to get the same thing out of these discussions that you do. We can discuss all of the different sides of the issue, but if people decide to focus on the failures of the only group in this mess that they rely on, the federal government, that's both perfectly legitimate and extremely important. I can't vote out the governor of louisiana, can I?
