The more you know about the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina, the worse it gets. Last night, the Associated Press reported that FEMA Director Michael Brown "waited hours after Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast before he proposed to his boss sending at least 1,000 Homeland Security workers into the region to support rescuers." According to internal documents obtained by the AP, Brown specified that part of the workers mission would be to "'convey a positive image' about the government's response for victims" to the public. While it was sent five hours after the storm hit, Brown's letter lacked any sense of urgency -- he requested the workers arrive within two days. The letter politely ended, "Thank you for your consideration in helping us to meet our responsibilities." Last week, President Bush praised Brown's efforts, telling him "Brownie, you're doing a heckuva job."

09/06/05 "PoliticalPost.com" -- -- Bush announced today in Washington, according to the Wall Street Journal, that "he will personally lead an investigation into what went wrong with the response to Hurricane Katrina."
CHRONOLOGY.... Here's a timeline that outlines the fate of both FEMA and flood control projects in New Orleans under the Bush administration:
"Many are concerned that federal disaster assistance may have evolved into both an oversized entitlement program...." he said. "Expectations of when the federal government should be involved and the degree of involvement may have ballooned beyond what is an appropriate level."
For some Americans, there is just no getting past their addiction to Bush's form of patriotic crack... "We're spreading freedom and democracy." Our boys our getting attacked every day by the people we are there to defend... and still these Bush defenders won't wake up from the fantasy.
Don't sit and wait for this flash movie to start... you have to SCROLL DOWN and hit PLAY on the left hand side of the page.

Once again, this half-whit, spoiled, rich boy President has PROVEN to the world that he has been elevated to job for which he lacks even the MINIMUM amount of competence. If we impeached a president for lying about cheating on his wife... I ask our Congress... IS THERE ANYTHING, ANYTHING THIS MAN COULD DO TO GET IMPEACHED??
