Having grown up in an area where we often had hurricanes (on barrier islands)...I concur with what Mitt Romney has said. The Feds totally screwed up the "fixing" of where I lived after one storm. The state and locals are much better at dealing with the aftermath of most of what happens in a storm such as this. The Mayors and Governors will let the Feds know what/if they need anything. Katrina was a perfect example of what happens when the Mayor and Governor have NOT A CLUE of how to handle a natural disaster. They "thought" they knew better and refused any help...gee that really worked out well. You should know more of what you speak before making stupid statements.
