The Blind Leading The Blind

According to the AP, none other that Mr. Bush himself will head up the investigation to review his own administration's incompetence. How exactly will that work?

Buffeted by criticism over the federal response to Hurricane Katrina, President Bush said Tuesday he will oversee an investigation into what went wrong and why — in part to be sure the country could withstand more storms or attack.

Bush also announced he is sending Vice President Dick Cheney to the Gulf Coast region on Thursday to help determine whether the government is doing all that it can.

"Bureaucracy is not going to stand in the way of getting the job done for the people," the president said after a meeting at the White House with his Cabinet on storm recovery efforts.

"What I intend to do is lead an investigation to find out what went right and what went wrong," Bush said. "We still live in an unsettled world. We want to make sure we can respond properly if there is a WMD (weapons of mass destruction) attack or another major storm."

Well, my question, is who is going to lead Mr. Bush? It's good to know that bureaucracy won't stand in the way of getting the job done. Seems to me that's all it has done. Bureaucracy along with Mr. Bush's incomptence has been a disaster for America, and particularly the Gulf Coast region.

But Bush said now is not the time to point fingers and he did not respond to calls for a commission to investigate the response.

"One of the things people want us to do here is play the blame game," he said. "We got to solve problems. There will be ample time to figure out what went right and what went wrong."
Well, Mr. Bush, just when are you going to begin this investigation. If not now, when? Perhaps after he has finished "playing the blame game" by shifting responsibility to everyone other than him and his inept administration. This ought to be a classic--not since Richard Nixon's vow to get to the bottom of Watergate have I felt so reassured by such an investigation.

George W sucks in so many ways, it would take far more than one blog to describe it

I suppose that's why there are so many blogs out there trying to describe it. Thanks for stopping by, and for commenting!

This is amazing. Thanks for posting it. I sent it on to everyone I know. My guess is he will figure out he was at fault on April 1st of 2008. But then he will say "April Fools"

To answer your question - no, I tell people not to head west because it is so boring and slow, for an older person who just wants peace and quiet it would be great, but for someone my age who wants opportunity and excitment it is HELL! Plus Dick Cheney is from here, need I say more?

You are absolutely right about Mr. Cheney. Keep him there (preferably at some undisclosed location!) :-)

Yeah, and the joke will still be on us. Hopefully by '08 there will be no traces of anything Bush. Thanks for stopping by.
