His side of what story? He wasn't impacted by the hurricane, if that is what we're discussing.

Unless he is going to give us a sad story about how he had to evacuate the ranch at Crawford (sniff--sob) two days early to oversee that crack job of responding to the disaster.

In fact he is telling his side (his excuse) of the story through a brash mouthed general who today intervened when a question regarding poor response and preparedness was asked. The general said "Bull Shit, we were mobilizing immediately!"

He has had more soft spoken generals on C-Span telling the administration side of the story with the aid of statistics.
"A storm such as this is considered to be a once in every 200 year event. So we were 99.5% assured that such a storm would not strike this year."

Additionally the Rove strategy of 'Blame the locals'* is getting play everywhere.

*especially the upitty mayor of New Orleans.

He will be.

"Getting a new chief justice of Bush's choosing in place quickly avoids the scenario of having liberal Justice John Paul Stevens presiding over court sessions, leading private meetings of the justices and thereby influencing court deliberations."

From here.

If he is NOT approved, that will be the first sign that maybe Bush is finished--if his reaction to Katrina hasn't dropped his profile so far below the political horizon that the 2006 elections are already beyond his influence.

Amazing, we have a US Senator, no names mentioned, but initials of Robert F. Kennedy Jr who stated that it was Bush's fault for the hurricane hitting and doing massive damage not to mention the lives that were lost and still missing. What we would all like to know, how could Mr. Bush control the storms, wind, rain and all the other elements to cause such a tragedy? It is in an opinion that when such a tragedy occurs, their is a chain of command that the governments, city, state and national go thru to request and seek out assistance.

And that's part of the problem, Kimchee. When things run smoothly, and people know what they're doing, the chain of command works as it should. Unfortunately, when something like this happens, there isn't time for requests for aide to go through all the channels and all the people in the chain. Someone needs to be able to make the decisions and say, "This is what needs to happen." The president is pinpointed as that man because of his position. In reality, he's not that man because he has to rely on all the consultants and advisors, etc, that make up his "team". Bureaucratic red tape has cost lives and whole hell of a lot of money...

Of course GW isn't responsible for the actual storm...that's just silly. He is, whether some of us like it or not, the President Of The United States...he has the authority to override all that time consuming chain ladder stuff in times of emergency, which this obviously was/is.

Kimchee:

I profoundly doubt the statement that RFK Junior, or anyone with his initials would make a claim that W is responsible for the storm itself. That exceeds event he absurdity of which the Senate is capable.

At the moment it was declared a Federal Emergency, which happened before landfall, he assumed responsibililty for the storm's results on the United States and specifically on Louisiana.

What he did with it is a matter of record.

Amos, Kim is just reacting to the latest Rush Limbaugh rhetoric.
What is sad is that kim "believes".


Being inside the beltway/loop to the federal goverment I was aware of the gutting of FEMA under Bush. over 1,000 natural disaster response experts in FEMA were put in terrorist threat jobs and nearly that many left for private consulting jobs after the budget was cut in half.
What FEMA is best geared up to do now-a-days is to react to biological and radiological disasters with a strong emphasis on quarantine and restricted access. Unfortunately that is the exact opposite for what a hurricaine response should be.

Those Bush quotes are very much in line with the way old Nixon used to go on.   Or Johnson for that matter, except he was capable of being fuinny with it.

I think cutting funding specifically needed to look after the New Orelans levees should be seen as aiding and abetting the hurricane, and should be appropriately penalised. And I really would have thought that that would be something on which everybody could be agreed.

The way people over in the States seem to trim their judgement on things like that according to political labels seems very strange indeed to an outsider.   

Yes, it happens like that to some extent everywhere - but I've just been looking at a news story about an ABC News poll taken at a time the screens were filled with unimaginable horrors from New Orleans, and when there was no sign of the Federal Government doing anything effective at all - and apparently some 74 per cent of Republicans said they approved of the way Bush was handling the crisis.

I just cannot conceive of that kind of result in an analogous situation back here, regardless of which party was in power nationally or locally.

Well, I was tryin' to click on Tweedsblues but I reckon it's got a party line with Krl Rove's office an' I got a rough draft of a speech that Bush is gettin' ready to unleash, perhaps tomorrow, on the American people... Here's the part I intercepted:

"My fellow Americans, the danged Democrats brought us Katrina and then have politicized it but I'm here to say that being your president is hard work...

The Dems don't know nuthin' about hard work since they all they do is complain, complain, complain...

Hey, I'm the president, ain't I??? And I'm sayin' that's it's hard work...

Hey; like my mom said,Katrina is the best thing that ever happened to them folks down there...

Well, all I gotta say is that being yer president is hard work...

God Bless America...
