I just want to apologize to the rest of America for the incredibly embarrassing excuse of a mayor that we seem to have in New Orleans. He made some comments yesterday in his speech at the local Martin Luther King Day celebration that probably have MLK spinning in his grave right about now.
He tried to apologize today before the City Council meeting, but it's too little too late. The man really needs to THINK before he opens his mouth sometimes. At the beginning of his term, he did some good things for the city, but the disaster has not been handled well by him at all. After that speech, any respect I had for him has been completely erased at this point. We were supposed to have elections next month for Mayor, which would have been a perfect opportunity to get rid of him. We're probably stuck with him until they can figure out how to hold elections in a city where 70% of the population is living somewhere else.
God help us all.
