    Here is what happens when you put a person in the job of the president based on his Daddy's name. This guy must be on drugs or in a total state of denial.

    The Last Bush Press Conference: Marvelously Out of Touch - Robert Schlesinger (usnews.com)

    From a conservative commentatrix:

    Commentary: Bush can't see failure of Katrina response - CNN.com

    From a lying liberal:

    Bush defends Katrina response - Politics AP - MiamiHerald.com

    The Associated Press: FACT CHECK: In final word, Bush gilds his record

    What really makes me angry is that will all the real American Patriots who have died, with all the people out of work, with the economy all screwed up, this little bastard and his buddy Cheney will retire with all the money they need for the rest of their miserable lifes.

    If there is such a thing as karma, somehow Bernie Madoff will get them to invest all their blood money in one of his schemes.:eusa_pray:

    Ya, cause well with all the roads, airfields and bridges washed out FEMA should have still been able to move all the supplies they had stockpiled. And of course the incompetent Mayor and Governor that allowed so many people to be left behind and did not stock provisions at evacuation sites or provide security nor tell FEMA where everyone was with out provisions, they are blameless, of Course.

    You are a Partisan hack, what ever will do once Obama is President?

    Gunny, the response was crap and you knnow it. If FEMA had not been downgraded under Bush and had its budget cut and if it had someone with emergency experience in charge, it would not have been this screwed up.

    This disaster was not something out of the blue. Hell, it was detailed in National Geographic a year earlier. If I had someone working for me in this type of job and they screwed up this bad, they would have been court martialed.

    Bitter almonds to you Willow are the truth to the majority.

    If he had just taken his HMX Helo and flown in with extra Secret Service and the necessary Military Police, he could have actually been a leader. All he had to do was spend a day or two in an un airconditioned tent and walk, talk and touch the people. That is a need from a leader in times like this. Funny how he could slime up on the pile of rubble in New York with the Fireman and act like he was there to protect them, but couldn't quite muster that for New Orleans or even leave the frigging birthday party of McCain early.

    His response was to fly over the city and look out a fucking airplane window.
    He doesn't have a clue what leadership is about. He failed the people of New Orleans and he failed our country.

    Keep sucking up your Bush Kool Aid for the rest of your life. History won't count him any better. When it does, you will then say that you were there when it happened and now history is lying.

    Gunny, if Obama screws up like this, I will be one of the first to point it out. I don't believe in the head in the sand defend your side right or wrong.

    The Katrina response was a FUBAR on all levels. However, the city and state government did follow the protocols. The Federal government did not. There were reporters moving in and out of the city freely, the emergency supplies could have easily been brought in. Hell, a young man even took a bus and drove in and picked up a load of people.

    This was just one of many fuckups that earned Bush the Miserable Failure title. And that is how history will view him.

    I don't get this schtick you have.

    I've seen you claim that you're a non-partisan, neither democrat nor republican, that you're independent, and that you were going to be happy if Obama won.

    But, you appear to be one of those Bill O'Reilly "independents", who spends virtually all their time attacking liberals.

    Can you explain?

    The FEMA response was piss poor.

    Bush defending that proformance as okay is typical of the guy.
