30 Second Cure

Now that the White House has the Gulf situation fully under control, let's check in with Billy Nungesser and see how much easier life is as his Louisiana Parish fights the flow.

Biden used his short visit to appear on camera with other politicians and eat seafood. Amazingly, Biden refused to meet with Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser and only gave this key local leader thirty seconds of his time. Biden used the visit for politics and a photo opportunity, instead of an opportunity to clean up the mess created by the federal government. Nungesser is President of Plaquemines Parish in New Orleans. Plaquemines Parish consists of the final stretch of the Mississippi River before it connects with the Gulf of Mexico. Hurricane Katrina first made landfall in the southern end of Plaquemines.
