More than five years after the fact, former President George W. Bush is admitting that having a photograph taken of him peering out the window of Air Force One at the Katrina-caused wreckage of New Orleans was a "huge mistake."

During an interview with NBC's Matt Lauer set to air next week, Bush had no qualms accepting that, with 20/20 hindsight, he would have approached the situation much differently to avoid appearing "detached and uncaring."

"It's always my fault. I mean, I was the one who should have said:'A) Don't take my picture, B) Let's land in Baton Rouge, La., C) Let's don't even come close to the area.' The next place to be seen is in Washington at a command center. I mean it was my fault," Bush said.

Bush's handling of the natural disaster was widely regarded as one of the low points of his political career, which was projected by a downward slide of his approval ratings in the following months.

The former president went on to show remorse for not getting more directly involved with the ground situation in the aftermath of the hurricane's damage to the gulf.

"In retrospect, however, I should have touched down in Baton Rouge, met with the governor and walked out and said,'I hear you. We understand. And we're going to help the state and help the local governments with as much resources as needed,'" Bush said. "And then got back on a flight up to Washington. I did not do that. And paid a price for it."

Bush also addressed Katrina backlash in the context of his public image by saying that Kanye West's "George Bush doesn't care about black people" comment was one of the most painful moments of his presidency.

<quoted text>"ABC News is getting a really bad reputation lately. First, they screwed up a bunch of reporting on the Boston Marathon Bombings and didn't run retractions on most of it... Then, they went to press with FAKE emails to support the "Benghazi Scandal" that Republicans cooked up. Now they may have really out-done themselves.
Everyone in America heard about only TWO news stories over the past couple of days. The first, understandably, is that the Royal Family has a new member. Congrats. The 2nd was that George Zimmerman, a recently freed murderer had heroically saved a family of four from a "fiery auto accident", thereby proving that he's just an honorable man who only wants to do good in the world and is misunderstood.
The latter story is preposterous on the face of it... and anyone who can't see that is blinded by wishful thinking. But let's look at some things that are coming to light about this incident now that ABC got their mileage out of it.
According to some industrious bloggers with a poorly designed site, the officer who responded to the auto accident that is the subject of this story is named Patrick Rehder who lives in Lake Mary, Florida. Here's a supposed copy of that incident report (and I say "supposed" only because I have not personally verified it myself): "
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-xRcmHx1ujM0/Ue-1fZG...
" MOST of Rehder's facebook posts have been about the trial... So how is it that a member of the same Sheriff's Office which is tasked with guarding Zimmerman, just happens to be same officer who responded to a car accident that Zimmerman just suddenly showed up at to become a hero? And what are the odds that the same Sheriff's Officer would have 128 friends who are ALSO Zimmerman supporters as well as staunch 2nd Amendment Rights advocates?"

The NYC mayor race is a major opportunity for Libertarians.
Demos/Tenzing should run.
If a Libertarian can't win against this zoo parade, they can't win anything.
Tenzing's party can't seem to get off the ground to provide an electable candidate with enough exposure and the right message.

That's the problem he can't accept.

Maybe if he texted explicit sex messages and took photos of "himself", he might have a chance...because anything is possible with liberals these days if you're perverted enough.

Black conservatism is a very lucrative business. It takes few resources to begin one's hustle. There are boosters who will back your play. The risks are minimal. Their public is eager to be grifted--is there no easier scam than taking money from the willing? And the skills that one needs to be successful in the black conservative con game are minimal. It is a real quota, and an internalized projection of what conservatives say "affirmative action" policies produce in the workplace: skin color, a hostility towards African-Americans, and a heartbeat are all that one needs to be a successful black conservative media darling. Ability is welcome but secondary and coincidental to one's skin color.
The black conservatives only have to sit around until needed, secure in their break in case of emergency bubble that the White Right has them encased within. While sitting there, the checks continue because they are on retainer. Quite a good deal.
All that is required to be a successful black conservative in the Fox News Tea Party GOP mold is to be a professional contrarian who stands against any position taken by the "civil rights establishment", a willingness to degrade black Americans for the pleasure of white racists, and to have little or no self-respect. The more self-hating and contemptible a black conservative's position on a given political issue, the higher the bounty and pay.

sorry, still not buying.
you might as well quit wasting your time on the subject. plenty of black folks out there who know that black conservatives/FOX race minstrels are no more 'black' than you are.
I will take the Black Republican Conservatives that are productive over the Black Democrat Pseudo Liberals that are non productive and you want to know why just look at Detroit Michigan which is controlled by the Black Democrat Pseudo Liberals and those Blacks are non productive which they cant keep their own lights on, keep the heat on or provide for themselves without the Federal Government and on the the other Black Republican Conservatives that work and they are tired of supporting them economically just like everyone else and why they are speaking out against the Pseudo Liberal's Government Programs they created which the Great Society has done more harm than good just look at Chicago & Detroit and you would be a conservative to and against the Pseudo Liberal Democrats change seen it in your own eyes which is why as a Democrat I want nothing to do with it and that kind of Utopia Society the Pseudo Liberal Democrats advocate and Detroit proved its a failure economically.

I'm sorry. I thought he has some semblance of intelligence... like you.

But you've made it clear I made an incorrect assumption and given both of you too much credit. So let me clarify.

If that's not clear enough, then I've still been giving you more credit on intelligence than you deserve! But I'll do my darndest to come down to your intelligence level. But I can only go so low!
