    that happens during his appointment.

    Mmm ... are you sure it wasn't the *response* to Katrina that Bush got blamed for?

    yeah. it was the response. i mean...the liberal thugs shooting at the choppers attempting to bring aid to the people
    has to be overlooked. after all, according to the liberal agenda, they were black, so just unable to help themselves.
    and the local "chocolate city" government had nothing to do with it either. can't blame it on the chocolate mayor, of course.
    he may have had ancestors who were slaves. that frees him of all responsibility. and the fact that the federal government
    gave the chocolate city 3 days warning in advance of the coming storm doesn't matter either. or the fact that the city had
    been told years before the hurricane their levees weren't worth a $h!t doesn't matter either. it's all bush. it has to be.
    why? cuz he's a dern white cowboy from texas, dammit. you knowhow dem dar white boys are always out to hold da
    black man down.

    There's a difference between Katrina and the response to Katrina. It's a rather unsubtle difference.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Right, it's all the "chocolate" people's fault.

    Never mind the fact that the levies are actually the responsibility of the Army Corps of Engineers, or that FEMA was ill prepared and mis-managed by a guy who Bush appointed. I mean hay, the guy had a ton of experience ... with thoroughbred horses.

    I was thoroughly floored to learn that ACE didn't even begin to catalog the nation's levies until Katrina - and there's a huge number of levies that no one even knows about, they're just dirt piles formed by individuals over the years.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    no. any liberal race would do. put a bunch of ignorant, liberal whites in the same situation, and they'd be just as inept.

    Re: Earthquake On US East Coast

    Happened a half hour after I landed in at the Richmond airport while driving to Norfolk. I didn't feel it in the car, but when I got to my appt, people were still standing outside the tower offices buildings.

    Now I'm in the the 25th floor of my hotel, hoping for no aftershocks
