Hi. I have a question that's been bugging me, and I haven't been able to find an answer to it. Back when Katrina hit, I recall President Bush wanting Governer Blanco to turn authority of the national guard over to the Federal Government. My questions are: 1. Why was the Presidents reason for wanting this? 2. Was it a precedent of any type? 3. Why would Blanco refuse? I looked on these forums and couldn't find and answer, and I couldn't find anything googling it (probably googled the wrong stuff). Sorry, just feel like a civic lesson tonight.
