GOI: Bush finally accepts responsibility for the role of the federal government it it's failures to quickly and adequately respond.
"Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government," Bush said at a joint White House news conference with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani.
"And to the extent that the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility. I want to know what went right and what went wrong," said Bush.
GOI: Good GOD it's about time. Now if we can only get him to admit responsibility for misleading Americans into a war.
Thought I had last night while watching "Insannity and Colmes":
If Sean Hannity keeps squinting his eyes to appear smarter then he is then he is going to end up with one eye.
And i'm out.
EDIT: GOI: I think I was still asleep when I typed up this post this morning. Zen Unbound and Paolo have set me straight and you should read their comments because they raise critical points about this President. He needs to do more then just SAY that he is taking responsibility because his word isn't worth much of anything right now to be honest and frank. The key here (as ZU) pointed out is an INDEPENDENT COMMISSION otherwise (as Paolo points out) there will only continue to be empty words. The people of the Gulf Coast region deserve more then words.
