I've yet to learn anything...

So I've been debating with a couple of conservatives this weekend, about this whole fiasco. I have to give them credit though, they stick to their guns, their misguided guns. One even pulled the "Clinton" card, Clinton hasn't been president for 5 years.

Ok, so the problem is the spin, conservatives are spinning the blame of Katrina on the local and state and the liberals are spinning the blame on the white house.

Problem is, from a public relations pov the liberals are winning. Regardless of who is finally to blame, bush looks bad. Why does bush look bad? He waited to long, as a result people died.

That's it, no one cares after that, his reaction time, too slow, not to be confused with his reaction time to Renquist's death, which was light speed compared to thousands of poor blacks dying in New Orleans.

It also doesn't help that the head of fema went on tv and basically admitted that their intelligence comes from tv and newspapers.

See the problem here? A federal agency has to rely on the news for their info. Couple that with the bush photo ops... bad pr all around.

bush should just fess up and say "the buck stops here", but he won't, cause then he'd have to admit to making a mistake. Sometimes you have to take one for the team mister president, sometimes you have to put the country first. But you wouldn't know anything about that... would you.
