"Nobody's coming to get her"

From MSNBC, but seen pretty much all over the media by now...
During an appearance Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," Aaron Broussard, the Jefferson Parish president, dropped his head and cried.

“The guy who runs this building I’m in, emergency management, he’s responsible for everything. His mother was trapped in St. Bernard nursing home, and every day she called him and said, ‘Are you coming, son? Is somebody coming?’ And he said,
‘And yeah, Momma, somebody’s coming to get you.
Somebody’s coming to get you on Tuesday.
Somebody’s coming to get you on Wednesday.
Somebody’s coming to get you Thursday.
Somebody’s coming to get you on Friday’ — and she drowned Friday night. She drowned on Friday night,” Broussard said.

“Nobody’s coming to get her, nobody’s coming to get her. The secretary’s promise, everybody’s promise. They’ve had press conferences — I’m sick of the press conferences. For God’s sakes, shut up and send us somebody.”

That pretty much sums it up.

Here's the link to the video...I don't think anyone in the Administration will be watching it anytime soon.
