Defending the indefensible

President Bush doesn't seem to like the questions raised to him today in New Orleans. Seems like he got the "blame game" talking points memorized but it's rather funny how the GOP has no problem blaming the local and state officials...

From the AP

In a sign that Bush is growing weary of the accusations, he testily replied to a reporter who asked whether he felt let down by federal officials on the ground.

"Look, there will be plenty of time to play the blame game," he said. "That's what you're trying to do. You're trying to say somebody is at fault. And, look, I want to know. I want to know exactly what went on and how it went on, and we'll continually assess inside my administration."

Getting alittle testy? Don't like the questions?

Too damn bad.

It's you who appointed Michael Brown to head FEMA (don't think I forgotten about you Senator Lieberman as you also have alot of explaining to do).

It's you who took four days until cutting you vacation short to deal with the crisis in New Orleans while people begged for help and died.

It's you who said that no one anticipiated that the leeves would break which was an outright lie.

Oh, the list goes on and on but the bottom line is that this administration has blood on it's hands and should be held accountable for their actions.
