    "Instead of supplying relief to the city, Rove had devised a scheme whereby he could blame the failure of government to take action on someone besides Bush. 'They looked around,' Landrieu says, "and they found a Democratic governor and an African American Democratic mayor who had never held office before in his life before he was mayor of New Orleans -- someone they knew they could manipulate. Ray Nagin had never held public office and here he was the mayor of New Orleans and it was going underwater."

    ...


    "While the administration had bickered over politics, Blanco had expanded the size of her National Guard by accepting deployments of guardsmen from all of the other 49 states."


    "Blanco accompanied Bush in his helicopter, along with Nagin."

    Kathleen, you should have crashed that helicopter.

    It's always been easier and more effective to blame others for the mistakes and eff ups of the Bush administration. I can't think of one thing they've done wrong that they haven't managed to blame on someone else.

    You've got to give them props, though. I've never seen people deflect better... not ever.

    The Clinton's are gone from the WH. We are talking about the bush's and their lying machine.

    "You're doing a heck of a job, Bownie!"

    "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!"

    the bush administration had been the most affective spin machine I have ever seen. Ex. We need to invade Iraq.
