wow...just a few weeks away from the hurricane which bush did not prevent...another hurricane which bush did not prevent...

and his approval ratings rise...hmmmm?
is he STILL president?




Typical neo con defense mechanism.  Don't like the message? Alter it to suit your needs.

No one blamed bush for the weather.  We blamed Bush for making 5 of the 8 top FEMA officials folks from his campaign - with no disaster relief experience.  Including the head of FEMA, "Brownie".

The guy is an utter and complete failure.  Republicans wanted to "take the country back" and provide us with their superior morals.

We all know what a load of darn that is now.




It is kind of funny that the media is so biased they even blame the weather on bush.   :D

exactly...


listen grayhame...simply...you are wrong: bush declared a pre-emptive national emergency for n.o. before the hurricane even hit...check the record.

so the "blame game" from an independent standpoint is equivalent to a child blaming the president for falling down and skinning his knee.

now matter how ya paint it the president PRE-EMPTIVELY acted...something democrats do not like.

what if he had waited?  then he would have been the problem.

in the case of new orleans it is the city gov. and state gov. who is to blame.
once you blame them...then go for the federal government and then the president...okay?

aye am in nyc...and before the hurricane hit...aye read that bush had declared n.o. a disaster area...aye thought, "wow, bush is the "pre-emptive" guy."
what if this hurricane doesn't pan out? what "goodies" will the democrats come up in the event of that.

then aye read that the "children" are blaming the president..."HOGSHITE!!!" is what aye think now.

brown did a lousy job? so blame him...but first blame the city responders and the state responders...then spend some money for an independent investigation at the democrats behest and find out what and who went astray...

or blame the president for not preventing the hurricane...it is absurd.

Simply declaring a disaster area preemptively is not sufficient to deflect blame for the failures of certain federal agencies in their response to said disaster.  And for the umpteenth time, people, one's criticism of the feds is not contingent upon their first criticizing the state and city governments ... that is a diversionary tactic.  If a criticism is valid, then it stands regardless of who else may have responsibility.

The issue that people seem to be upset about with Brown is that he was unqualified for his position, that he got the position because of his relationship with W...

But that's not what bothers me about it, or what I think should be bothering Congress.. I don't think that George Bush appointing his campaign buddies to positions in his administration is inherently terrible... for better or for worse that's how politics works across the board and whether or not it should be allowed is an argument independent of political standing or party...

HOWEVER...

Here's my problem with George Bush appointing Mr. Brown to a job that he clearly was not qualified for... FEMA's role is not JUST to respond to weather, which W obviously cannot control... for the past 4 years President Bush and others (dems included) have endeavored to convince the American public that terrorism is a very real and dangerous threat that we need to respond to actively and pro-actively... they have convinced us that the Dept. of Homeland Security is crucial for our survival as a nation in the face of the terrorist threat... yet the man who has valiantly led us in this proactive charge against terrorism appointed a man who was clearly not the best man for the job to lead a very important agency (FEMA) in this organization... 

Really... did he need to put Brown there?  If he was truly concerned about terrorism, couldn't he have found somebody better and given Brown a nice job in the Treasury department, or Agriculture, or something...

..and i think that the local and state gov. in louisiana are so faulty that they have lost their greatest city...accept that numbers style criticism.

the problem was at home...go to the source.

There were many problems, including, but not limited to, the state and local governments.  Why do you think Bush sent Brownie home?  It wasn't because he was doing a heckuva job, was it?
