    Off with his head!!

    Should be the end of him politically, I think.

    Yeah i saw this, something i found rather Bush like was the following:

    -Bush praises the minster of preventing disasters (or something like that) two weeks ago.
    -Hurricane Katrine hits US.
    -That minister is fired.
    -Bush takes full responsability.


    Bush keeps his job yet he says the poor relief effort is his fault.

    He did this yesterday didnt he?

    I dont think it is the end of him though, it would have been if he hadnt as most people blame him anyway. Whether due to his attitude afterwards or the fact the cronies he appointed werent fit for the job, i think most put blame on him.

    By doing this "im the man at the top, so its my fault" thing, he gathers in sympathy. Look at the wording he used.

    He shouldn't lose his job for that and I actually commend him for taking responsibility. It's one thing I can jot down as being remotely redeemable.

    He also didn't have much choice so it was CaptainObvious since he chose a person not qualified to head FEMA just 'cause of cronyism.

    Either way I like when any President is humbled of their high horse.

    edit: Rat get the hell outta my head.

    Just so; other Presidents have not done this.

    I Agree, on the information that appears to be there, that all 3 should go.

    I'm sure that further things will come out though, before any of them do.

    You mean we shouldn't jump too quick?

    It occurs to me a whimsically inclined Mother Nature could cause any number of persons in various positions of responsiblility to fall on their swords at the drop of a....natural disaster.

    Any unanticipated event could suffice.

    Given that politics is what it is, serving as a great brake on any expedient, the need for this mass public-servant-sacrifice should have been anticipated, if nothing else was.
