Clearly, he only takes the blame on the federal level - and only with the delayed response of federal aid/assistance. Still, good on him.

Bush takes blame for flaws in Katrina response President heading to Louisiana on Thursday for primetime speech WASHINGTON - President Bush said Tuesday that "I take responsibility" for failures in dealing with Hurricane Katrina and that the disaster raised broader questions about the government's ability to respond to natural disasters as well as terror attacks. "Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government," Bush said at joint White House news conference with the president of Iraq. "To the extent the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility," Bush said. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9324891/

Does that even come close to what he actually said? No. He is the leader of the federal government, so of course the delay was his responsibility. Furthermore, at least he is taking the blame for his mistakes. I can think of at least a dozen fuck ups that Clinton never apologized for, and none of them have to do with having oral sex with a fat intern.

Yeah lets bring up Clinton because he was involved here. Or maybe lets not. Bush has made monumental mistakes, mistakes that have actually killed many people. It is good to see he actually admitted to one of his fuck ups finally.

[color=black]No lets bring up Bill, I mean he was the greatest president ever, he is the guiding light of all future presidents. He made some great monumental mistakes (Somalia seems like a keeper), mistakes that have actually killed people. It's not like this is a new development. But because its Bush we will just jump all over it as if presidents have never made mistakes before, to which most don't admit it.[/color]

I can't believe he didn't blow away the hurricane with his super-breath. It really is shocking. The person at blame here is the retard who decided to build a city on the coastline, BELOW sea level.

Oh yeah, he forgot to tell FEMA about the storm maker that the scientists over at the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy Headquarters made up, just to kill impoverished black people and drive oil prices up further hurting the economy. And he totally forgot to make legislation that puts the National Guard under his control, as well as a little coattail that said US troops can be deployed on American soil during a time of peace. D'OH! He never consulted a terot card reader, or got the X-Men to blow the storm away! The only thing he did do wrong was not declare an emergency earlier. If you want someone to bear the brunt of the blame, look no further than the mayor. Hell, he refused to let aid trucks in because he feared riots or the like would ensue. Or the governor, for not declaring an emergency and getting federal funds earlier. Or, for that matter, not sending in the National Guard soldiers.

[color=black]Seriously though, I agree with you. Bush is only one piece in a giant puzzle of blame and shame. Also, I'd rather have a president willing to go in front of the nation and admit their mistakes (despite knowing how it would be blown out of proportion, or how low their approval ratings were) instead of casting the blame on someone else or denying it altogether. [/color]

[color=black]Hopefully, now we can start putting the blame game away and get on with the task at hand – rebuilding the big easy. [/color]

Well, it wasn't exactly too bright of them, but its not like they really had any choice in the matter. Hell, the part they built was above ground. Good post, reputation for you.

Although I don't think he has all that much to do with it, at least Bush is accepting some responsibility.

So what about the Governor and the Mayor admitting their own failures?

...well, I'm not holding my breath. :rolleyes:
