Even 9/11 isn't working anymore
Mr. Bush can't remove the scabs and open the wound again to suit his purposes. Instead he has to face the devistation his own shortsightedness has caused in New Orleans. He can try for as many of photo ops as he wants, but this time the country isnt' buying it. He can't lay the blame on someone else. Why? Because the people who know they did something wrong on the state and local level ADMIT it, an although people will be angry about that I think they are glad that someone is taking responsibility for their action (or inaction).
Yet the President and his apointees do the photo ops patting each other on the back and saying how great the federal response was. Does Mr. Bush have no sense of reality at all? Does he think we can't tell the difference in a sincere admission of guilt with an apology and a finger pointing "it's not my fault" smarmie smile?
Why do I keep asking questions like that? The answer is always the same. Mores the pity.
