Bush Visit Halts 3 Tons Of Food Supplies.

Raw Story is reporting that three tons of food that were ready for delivery for the survivors in St. Bernard Parish and Algiers Point sat on the crescent City Connection bridge Friday afternoon because air traffic was halted during Bush’s visit to New Orleans.

The supplies, organized by Louisiana Democratic Congressman Charlie Melancon and the state Agriculture Commissioner Bob Odom sat in the afternoon sun as Bush surveyed the damage that Katrina had left five days prior.

The food was expected to be delivered Friday night, after Bush left the devastated region.

Gov. Kathleen Blanco's Bureaucrats Blocked Food and Water

The Red Cross was reportedly ready to deliver food, water and other supplies to flood-ravaged refugees who were sweltering inside New Orleans' Superdome last week - but the relief was blocked by bureaucrats who worked for Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco.


Fox News Channel's Major Garrett reported Wednesday that the Red Cross had "trucks with water, food, hygiene equipment, all sorts of things ready to go ... to the Superdome and Convention Center."

But the Louisiana Department of Homeland Security, Garrett said, "told them they could not go."
"The Red Cross tells me that Louisiana's Department of Homeland Security said, 'Look, we do not want to create a magnet for more people to come to the Superdome or Convention Center, we want to get them out,'" he explained.

"So at the same time local officials were screaming where is the food, where is the water, the Red Cross was standing by ready [and] the Louisiana Department of Homeland Security said you can't go."

You posted this before...verify it, or stop.

You think anyone gives a damn about polls at a time like this? I didn't even read it.

For polls to be even remotely accurate they have to have at least 1500-2000 people answer the poll, in a RANDOM manner, and it should be given over a period of a few days at different times. An elementary statistics course would teach you the same thing.

====>HAHAHA. The man who posts all sorts of unverifiable and false information now wants verification of a stroy! This is a hoot! This from a guy who won;t believe the eyewitness accounts of the looting and rapes and murders but believes a first person account of Condoleeza Rice's callousness when shopping for shoes in NYC now he wants proof? HAHAHAHAHA. You have single handedly exemplified the contradictory nature of a true left-winger!
This information was provided by the head of the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, on camera, to Fox's Major Garret. Garret was even asked about the validity of this information as he was the ONLY one to report this and he pretty much raised suspicion because he was the only one to report it. He has very plainly denied even wanting to take credit for the report as he simply stated that if CNN or MSNBC wanted to all they would have had to do is bring a microphone and camera and they would have gotten the very same report. He didn't have a "secret" source. His source was the Red Corss and Salvation Army and they did it open and inconspicuously on camera. But again that still may not be enough proof for you.

You think anyone gives a damn about polls at a time like this? I didn't even read it.
=======>Hahahahahahahaha! This is from the guy who wrote so much about the approval numbers of the president being oh-so-important and now that they represent something contradictory to your mantra it now is not important. And at a time like this, this political scapegoating is not important, except to the vultures like yourself that want to make it about the president. So now that you have some tangible evidence that you are definitely in the minority of things it hurts your feelings. Duplicity runs amuck again with yet another leftist. Imagine that!!

For polls to be even remotely accurate they have to have at least 1500-2000 people answer the poll, in a RANDOM manner, and it should be given over a period of a few days at different times. An elementary statistics course would teach you the same thin

======>Yeah you're right. I mean why listen to silly facts. It's Bush's fault.....idiot.

Miami,
I believe NOTHING that comes from Fox News, unless you can show me hard documentation of those facts. In this case, audio or video of the head of the Red Cross proclaiming this under oath with his hand on a bible. then I MIGHT believe him...but I'd be suspecious....so perhaps, Miami, you should look at the facts.

the USA poll is obviously flawed simply because it didn't ask enough people to respond to get an clear pulse of what the American people thought. a Washington Post/ABC News poll had similar problems, and the media also failed to tell that the poll found massive opposition to Bush from independents. If you want to see how REAL polling is done, ask folks like John Zogby, or Gallop. you can compare several polls that asked similar questions, and come to your own conclusion.
