Ha Ha, Really Funny, Asshole!
John at Americablog: Bush is still lying about Katrina
Bush tells ABC News, in an interview to be broadcast on World News Tonight, Nightline and Good Morning America, that the problem with Hurricane Katrina was that the White House didn't have enough "situational awareness" of what was happening on the ground in New Orleans:ABC News: Report: White House Knew About LeveesBUSH: Listen, here's the problem that happened in Katrina. There was no situational awareness, and that means that we weren't getting good, solid information from people who were on the ground, and we need to do a better job. One reason we weren't is because communications systems got wiped out, and in many cases we were relying upon the media, who happened to have better situational awareness than the government.That's a lie. The White House knew the levies were breaking and did nothing about it. We now know that for a fact...(more)
Levee Breaches Reported by 28 Agencies As Katrina Hit, Documents Show
Yep, and maybe if Bush would have cut short his vacation and come back to DC earlier he would have known that much. The storm hit, the levees broke, and the Whitehouse was notified all about it Monday before daybreak. Instead we all got to see pictures of him at McCain's birthday party in Arizona on Monday afternoon and then him pretending like he knew how to play a guitar in California on Tuesday. He went back to Crawford that Wed and didn't head back to DC until Thursday.
What upsets me most, is that goddamn smirk that's still on his face, even as he tries to answer questions about it.
