AP article (link via Yahoo) reveals Bush was briefed with extremely accurate predictions for Hurricane Katrina devastation before the storm struck. "We are fully prepared," was all he had to say.
Fully prepared for what? Fully prepared to let the city be destroyed? To let people and animals suffer and die? To repeatedly turn offered aid away so that poor people (not his people, being famously lacking among the "haves and the have-mores" in Bush's base) could be conveniently eliminated by an Act of God? That's one way to get the welfare rolls down.
How much more evidence of Bush's callous disregard for anything constituting the commonwealth needs to pile up before even the most self-absorbed "but at least I'M safe" people take notice? I guess everyone likes to believe they are part of the elite?

I think people are noticing. His approval ratings are down around 34%.
My brother and I were talking last night about whether they could go below 30.
Yeah, I noticed on the leader for the news last night that apprently they have a video recording of it and all that.
Although Bush always seems confident to go against documentation, facts and history.
Um...I don't like him, but I'm not sure what to do about it. I still don't believe in murder.

And if Bush died, Cheney would be president. Not really an improvement, I'm thinking.
In fact, that is my leading theory about why Cheney is vice. To keep Bush from being assassinated.

This fits the pattern
Established with 9-11 and the invasion of Iraq.
1. Warnings from people who know what they are talking about. (Al quaeda determined to attack US, we need more troops, the levees may be breeched)
2. Failure to do ANYTHING about it.
3. Followed by speechifying about how "nobody could have predicted this."
Really, the only thing Bush has ever DONE is start a couple of wars he can't be bothered to finish properly. Everything else is a thin layer of rhetoric on top of an empty shell of laissez-faire slacking.
