What a non-story.
These after-the-facts–let’s try to assign blame wastes of time are truly annoying. If they really did affect future events, I could see them, but to try and lay blame is ridiculous.
The major thing that Bush F*d up on was not getting the N.G. in there pronto. Now, there are issues as to the rights and responsibilities of the federal govt as opposed to state govt that I can’t quote, but that is the blunder.
Once the sstorm hit and the levees broke ain’t nothing that could be done. Personal responsibility would have probably saved half or more of the lives that were lost. 1/2 a brain might have saved the majority of the rest.
It was, in some ways, an unavoidable situation given the circumstances that were involved. It was, in others, a cluster that could have been much better handled. There is enough responsibility–from the president to the local govt’s to the citizens–that this tape means nothing more than a few people getting some type of jolly about seeing the president further beaten down.
It certainly isn’t breaking news. It conveys no information that wasn’t generally accepted by most previously.
It changes nothing.
You’re right: it changes nothing.
Bush continues to be an incompetent disgrace.
He may be,
but not because of New Orleans.
I will admit to wondering what the guy is doing right now. It is a rudderless ship. No plan. No direction. It’s disheartening to see us in the position we seem to be in. No one leading. No one working towards a common goal/good.
I admit to looking forward to some different(any)leadership in the future.[/quote]
So why, pray tell, do you have the same knee jerk reaction when others say the exact same thing?
