GOI: I am watching the "Katrina hearings" this morning and the grilling of Michael Brown.
This guy has as brass set.
He's sitting there basically denying everything and yelling at these Senators.
What a jackass.
This guy has the nuts to sit there and blame everyone else without really taking any responsibility himself at all.
"My biggest mistake was not recognizing by Saturday that Louisiana was dysfunctional," two days before the storm hit, Brown told a special congressional panel set up by House Republican leaders to investigate the catastrophe.
The storm slammed into the Gulf Coast on Monday, Aug. 29.
GOI: This is like an abusive husband blaming their battered wife for being the victim!!
(R) Congressman Christopher Shayes was grilling him and Brownie basically accused Shayes of expecting him to be a "Super Hero."
To that I say, "Well, you are the head of the most important emergency response agency in America. You are supposed to "kind of be a Super Hero." This is why not just anyone (although you appear to be "just anyone") can or should be given this job!
He's like a snotty, little kid who beats up another kid in front of a huge crowd and then denies everything.
Why should I be surprised though? This is the history of people in the Bush administration. The buck only stops with them when it's a dollar "buck." Sure the local and state officials are to blame as well but the ultimate blame rests with FEMA and DHS. Although, at least Bush (however, some what torturedly and conditional) accepted some of the blame for the disaster after the disaster. That's more then can be said forBrownie.
DHS created JUST FOR THIS TYPE OF EVENT!!! Chertoff should not escape blame here either.
