Ok, so why didn't the Mayor use the buses?

MSNBC: Katrina forecasters were remarkably accurate

"MIAMI - For all the criticism of the Bush administration’s confused response to Hurricane Katrina, at least two federal agencies got it right: the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center.

They forecast the path of the storm and the potential for devastation with remarkable accuracy.

The performance by the two agencies calls into question claims by President Bush and others in his administration that Katrina was a catastrophe that no one envisioned."

While I'm writing this, I am baby.. - or rather puppy sitting my seven-month old puppy. One thing you'll notice about a puppy is that at times they are the most stubborn animals on the face of the earth. I mean once they grab onto something they just chew on it and gnaw on it, and chew on it like - forever!

Yep, their stubborn all right....... just like our present MSM.

For instance, if you were to believe their take on Katrina, there was no Mayor or Governor or even Senators in Louisiana because as they will tell you, and keep telling you, "It's Bush fault!" It's as if Mayor Nagin and Governor Blanco were "minors" with no inherant responsibility or accountability.

...."You know, they're just ...well, know.....they were confused. It was a big storm!...come on, leave 'em alone!"

However, in this article the writer sort of slips. He slips because you can't throw the leavy breach/overflow on anything the Bush administration did. The simple fact is that it is well known by now that Louisiana recieved more than enough money to fix/shore up their levees. They didn't do it, instead spending the money they were given for "other purposes", some of which were less than ethical.

But again, those evacuations were not the responsibility of the Federal Government - FEMA doesn't primarily evacuate, they don't call that shot. Local and Federal Governments do. No matter how much the MSM tries to hide that fact, the people of New Orleans, or at least the ones ABC News interviewed know who was responsible. They know who was primarily accountable for getting them out of the city.

For all the "confusion" this article attributes to the Federal Government, it pales in comparison to the marked incompetence of the Nagin/Blanco duo that led to the "Cluster-Cluck" at the local level which was the greatest contributing factor in New Orleans.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
