Why FEMA failed in New Orleans

"Brownie, you are doing a heck of a job." - President Bush Friday September 2, 2005

Amoung the butt kissers in Bush's photo op yesterday in Mississippi was Mike Brown or "Brownie" (as George Bush calls him. You can't make this stuff up!) He's the top guy at FEMA what's his experience for that position?

"Prior to joining FEMA he practiced law in Colorado and Oklahoma, where he served as a bar examiner on ethics and professional responsibility for the Oklahoma Supreme Court and as a hearing examiner for the Colorado Supreme Court. He had been appointed as a special prosecutor in police disciplinary matters. While attending law school he was appointed by the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee of the Oklahoma Legislature as the Finance Committee Staff Director, where he oversaw state fiscal issues. His background in state and local government also includes serving as an assistant city manager with emergency services "

Oh yes he was also the former FEMA Director Joe Allburgh's roomate. How's that for additional qualifications.

Thanks to Daily Ko's for bringing this info up from the muck.
