Mike Bayham - Taking Credit Where None is Due

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)


This is Bayham's latest newspaper ad. Does he really think people believe he's responsible for all he claims credit for? Anyone who has ever worked on a major project can tell you many people are involved in its planning and execution. How shallow of him to try and take credit as if he was a "one man show" of sorts. Besides, I can tell you for a fact that all that post-Katrina grant money he claims to have gotten for the parish was coming here automatically. Who does he think he is taking credit for all that?

And when it comes to attempts to get Congress to close the MRGO, in June of 2004 I attended the MRGO Symposium out at the Gulf Outlet Marina, sponsored by the St. Bernard parish government. That event was orchestrated by John Scurich, who at that time was an executive assistant to Junior. They had the colonel form the Corps of Engineers, Mary Landrieu, Vitter, several state and federal agencies, and several state legislators. They took all of us out on the water to show them the damage caused by the MRGO. Following that was a thorough presentation done by Professor John Grimm with Multi-Quest International Research showing how little economic impact we were getting out the MRGO. I recall John Scurich telling the crowd of better than 150 the Symposium was a direct result of two previous visits he and Junior made to Washington DC that year.

Mike Bayham was not seen at this event. I can't imagine what little, if any, he had to do with the closure of the MRGO. But now that it's election time, he appears to have been responsible for everything that's gotten done. I think if Jesus returned for the second coming, Bayham would claim credit for arranging it.
