"Mr. Bush's performance last week will rank as one of the worst ever during a dire national emergency"
Bob Herbert of the New York Times.

But here's something you won't see Big Media reporting.
"The federal government pretty much met its standard time lines, but the volume of support provided during the 72-96 hour was unprecedented. The federal response here was faster than Hugo, faster than Andrew, faster than Iniki, faster than Francine and Jeanne."
Did you know it took five days for the National Guard to arrive after hurricane Andrew hit Homestead, Florida in 1992? It took three for Blanco to finally mobilize them after Katrina.

I have been amazed at the hate spewed at Dubya over this. One could be mistaken for believing that he actually caused it all.
It seems the floundering left have finally found something with which to beat him over the head....alas for them, it will fail as anger subsides and common sense sinks back in.

Dumbkopft. There's plenty to beat Bush over the head with - he's a freaking moron. Honestly, if it weren't for 9/11 and the War on Terror giving him a cover for his incompetance, he'd have been voted out in the last election. Until 9/11 he was shaping up to be the most pathetic president in history.

No, Bush didn't cause this, but fucking oath he did jack all. And yes, the state's National Guard mobilised in 3 days. The REST of the National Guard had to wait another 2 days for Washington to get its act together. Honestly, you guys wear blinders thicker than my bedroom walls.

Finally a Bush quote I agree with:
"Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government, and to the extent that the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility."

At least he's big enough to admit it. Unlike Blanco or Nagin.
