The city Officials in New Orleans have no clue.
They don't even have control over the areas that they claim to control.
So let me respond.
You seem to have no ZIP, ZERO, NADA concept of what local govt does. I don't want to minimize what they do but think small scale.

Local government had no plan in place to evacuate an entire city below sea level, even though they have had 100's of years to draw up some sort of plan. ZIP, NADA
There are evacuation plans and an agency in place to implement it. The Louisiana Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness Agency is a joint state/federal agency under the control of the military. They had a plan to evacuate New Orleans and this.
Since, not only the city is underwater but the state and evacuation would entail other states, there is no way that this could have been a local plan.

Local government had no plans in place to fix a hole in a levee that surrounds there entire city. ZIP, NADA
The levees also were built and maintained by the army corps of engineers. Federal army that is.
Also the Superdome is in the hands of the army as well.

he should have drawn up an evacuation plan, even if any of his predecessors throughout history ignored it.
This is Bush fault that he didn't ensure the safety of the citizens of New Orleans after a natural disaster.
This is Bush's Fault for not come up with a contingency plan for the most logical what if scenario in a city below sea level.
why even have a local government? What do they do?
George "Superman" Bush will fix it, right?
Stop bringing politics into this. You and acs are the only ones that keep bringing up political affiliations. I could easily say that this was Bushes fault but I am only saying that you blaming local govt for a lack of planning is kindof absurd.
