Unfortunately , they are still keeping him in another office within FEMA for now. Some Army guy took over his position as director of Katrina recovery efforts.

The news said it happened as the result of a storm of criticism about his ability to do the job.

He was helping to make the U.S. look like a bunch of retards to the rest of the world. Glad he's out and a man who can kick some ass in in.

Yeah, it is unfortunate that he still has a job at FEMA though. He should have never got it in the first place. Did you see Jon Stewart knock him on the Daily Show at all? It was great :smile:

"Meet the F**kers"? :lol: Yes, I caught that last night. It was funny!

On the news today they said the management experience he had before this position with the Arabian Horse Assc. had him managing just 2 people. They also said Mike Brown expressed a wish to step down.

It's  Army Admiral Allen that took over.

I think when Mike Brown told news reporters on Thursday night that he just found out people were at the Convention center, he nailed his coffin. After that, I havn't heard anyone being in support of his ability to handle this one competently.

They're probably too stupid to resign...

or too lacking in any sense of honor.

I doubt it.

Blanco and Nagin are being portrayed in a Pataki/Giuliani patriotic light in the media.
