George W. Vacuum

Read the words carefully...

Bush: 'I take responsibility'

President George W. Bush took responsibility on Tuesday for
any failures in the federal response to Hurricane Katrina and acknowledged the storm exposed serious deficiencies at all levels of government four years after the September 11 attacks.

To the extent that the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility," Bush told a White House news conference at which he openly questioned U.S. preparedness for another storm or a "severe attack."

Bush's rare admission of "serious problems in our response capability" came as
the White House stepped up efforts to repair his public standing. Bush will address the nation at 9 p.m. EDT (0100 GMT) on Thursday from hard-hit Louisiana, his fourth visit to the disaster zone since Katrina struck. --snip--

Asked if Americans should worry that the government remains unprepared to respond to another major disaster or a terrorist attack, Bush said: "Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at
all levels of government. --snip--

"Are we capable of dealing with a severe attack or another severe storm? That's a very important question and
it's in our national interest that we find out exactly what went on so we can better respond," he said at a news conference with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani. Link

While you're busy figuring out "exactly what went on," George W., here's what a body looks like after a week of your cake eating, guitar playing, and photo ops...

Hey, citizens! Don't hold your breath waiting for George W. to resign.

Ain't gonna happen.

The Blame Game crap didn't work, and this is the only way BushCo hopes to avoid a congressional inquiry.

Have you forgotten?

On 9/11, George W. AWOL flew west, out of harm's way. BushCo even lied about threats to Air Force One that day because they knew how bad it looked for the president to run away and hide.

One photo op with a bullhorn and George W. Scott Free "got on with his life."

And never forget: the infrastructure of New York City wasn't destroyed on 9/11. Survivors weren't abandoned. They weren't left to bloat in polluted, snake infested waters by an uninvolved federal government.

Take responsibility?

George W. Vacuum?

Never in a million years.

Did he take responsibility for handing Halliburton another juicy government contract last week?

Didn't think so.
