A failure dramatically underlined by a rapier-like anecdote told by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi about Bush’s reaction when she told him that he should fire FEMA Head Michael Brown:
‘He said ‘Why would I do that?”’ Pelosi said.
“‘I said because of all that went wrong, of all that didn’t go right last week.’
And he said ‘What didn’t go right?”'’
Pelosi then said what needed to be said: the US government is headed by someone who is, in her words, ‘’Oblivious, in denial, dangerous.”
Oh, if only the US media were more like their UK brethren, we wouldn’t be in this mess.
