Nagin equates NYC Twin Towers collapse to a pot hole?

Nagin Cites Failure To Rebuild Ground Zero While Defending Katrina Clean-Up

Confronted by accusations that he’s taking too long to clean up his city after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin defended himself by remarking on New York City’s failure to rebuild Ground Zero.

On a tour of the decimated Ninth Ward, Nagin tells Pitts the city has removed most of the debris from public property and it’s mainly private land that’s still affected – areas that can’t be cleaned without the owners' permission. But when Pitts points to flood-damaged cars in the street and a house washed partially into the street, the mayor shoots back. "That’s alright. You guys in New York can’t get a hole in the ground fixed and it’s five years later. So let’s be fair."

Equating flood damage to NYC devastation of Twin Towers collapsing from a terrorists attack?!?!?

Equating it to nothing more than a "hole in the ground".
What, you think it is a pothole Nagin?

But before any rebuilding can take place, the clean-up and restoration of the city’s infrastructure must be complete and it will be Mayor Nagin, recently re-elected, who leads the efforts.

"Should things have happened quicker? Yes. But everyone has their own style of leadership, and right now our political leader, our political father is Ray Nagin," says Oliver Thomas, New Orleans City Council president.

"So for the next four years, we’re going to sink or swim with him," Thomas tells Pitts.


Better start learning to dog paddle because if your counting on Nagin, best to start trying to swim now before he drags you under.......
