Rebuild it, tear it down, you know, whatever

So said John McCain when asked if he would rebuild the lower 9th ward as president:

“That is why we need to go back is to have a conversation about what to do -rebuild it, tear it down, you know, whatever it is,”

My question is this: If John McCain is ready to lead as President on Day One of his administration – as his campaign has tried to assert – then why can’t McCain come up with a better answer about what to do in parts of New Orleans still struggling to recover from Hurricane Katrina than some generic talk about “having a conversation,” coupled with more generic talk about either rebuilding it, tearing it down, or whatever.

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I have serious misgivings about John McCain’s fitness to lead as our nation’s next President, and his plan – or rather, lack thereof – when it comes to New Orleans is just another example of how John McCain just isn’t quite ready to be our nation’s next president.
