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.

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.
As Galt would say, another diversion. As I would say, another distraction.

Both are accurate.

Hey! Aren't you the annoying little gnat that is always claiming he's smarter than everyone? The lonely one that also posts until 4AM each day?
LOL!!!
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.

I live in the United States of America son.

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!

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.

Good question. But I also think they're just trying to goad you.

No offense, but sometimes you bring out the worst in people when they would never say some of the things they say otherwise.

Could be wrong. Sure hope so.

Watched the special on the Chesire Murders. Interesting that the two killers were both molested as children; the younger one was from a family with severe mental problems and then molested by another fosterchild. The religious parents refused treatment or medication for him, preferring home school and church. He turned into a sadistic rapist and murderer.

Not surprised; seemed like a bullshyt stunt to me in the first place.
There was a little talk about the parents being involved early on and then it got quiet when the city commissioner was arrested for interfering. Whatever, it's moved from the blogs to the national news now so maybe some details will emerge.

Texans benefited from bringing new jobs to the state because of President Obama's Stimulus Plan and TIFIA bill. Texas , under Governor Rick Perry ,had their big hands out more often than any other state for Government funding handouts.
