A 1998 ruling, by an administrative judge for the Corps' Board of Contract Appeals, shows that the contractor, Pittman Construction, told the Corps that the soil and the foundation for the walls were “not of sufficient strength, rigidity and stability” to build on.For the last month the left has been blaming Bush personally for the levee failure saying that he cut funds that would have shored up the levees (although the levees did not fail, the floodwalls did).
Since Bill Clinton was president when the floodwalls were built I guess he must have been personally responsible instead. Clinton and political consultant James Carvell must have known all about the problem with the walls (actually, Carvell might have since this is his turf). Did they knowingly allow defective floodgates to be built out of racism or were they hoping that the walls would break during a Republican administration?
No, I don't take any of this seriously but I can make as good a case against Clinton as the left has been making against Bush. Maybe they should appologize. (ha!)
