Mayor Barrett and Governor Doyle- are you paying attention?
Gov. Kathleen Blanco ordered National Guardsmen to help police patrol the city for the first time since Hurricane Katrina, following a bloody weekend that brought fears of crime disrupting the city's delicate reconstruction.
When confronted with a looming security crisis- Nagin and Blanco decided to fight crime. They did not wait, they did not hesitate, they did not propose new government programs. They got some boots are the ground and decided to fight the crime immediately.
Much has been said and written about Blanco and Nagin's failure of leadership over the last year. Yet, when confronted with an impending security crisis, they reacted immediately.
What have Doyle and Barrett done when Milwaukee is confronted with a security crisis? Apparently nothing. We are still waiting to see some real action.
How pathetic are Doyle and Barrett, when the two people dubbed as America's worst governor and worst mayor, Blanco and Nagin- actually make them look bad?
