New Orleans-Out of Control in a different world!

Is there any more dysfunctional city, with a more dysfunctional Mayor and major bozos who are supposed to serve as leaders than in New Orleans?  Remember the recovery czar Ed Blakely.  A real phony who set New Orleans back years with his ridiculous policies endorsed by Mayor Ray Nagin?  Here’s what he said a few days ago about New Orleans.

 In the Cal-Berkeley interview, Blakely’s most explosive comments came when he was asked about race. “Everyone’s a racist. It’s part of what we have in this country, but it’s deeper, more viral, more visible and more entrenched in New Orleans than any place I’ve ever seen,” Blakely said.

He then said white New Orleanians saw the turmoil after Katrina as an opportunity to regain political power. “Now, the white community, there’s blood in the water, and they can recapture the political apparatus and kind of put their foot back on black people’s throats,” he said. Blakely went on to predict that race riots are likely. “Unless the next mayor is very clever, it’s going to explode and there are going to be race riots.” .

 Blakely also played climatologist, saying New Orleans “isn’t likely” to be around 100 years from now. He said the Mississippi River and another storm would probably conspire to “wipe New Orleans off the map.”

Take a look at some of his ridiculous comments below:
