    ok so the president sorta admitted responsibility 

    today for the bullshit that went down in new orleans recently.

    “to the extent the federal government didn’t fully do its job right, I take responsibility.”

    which is sorta as lame as when people say, “if ive upset you, i apologize.”

    just fucking apologize.

    everyone knows how to apologize.

    “my bad.”

    “im sorry.”

    “i will never be able to forgive myself for what ive done to you and for the lives that were lost because of the fuckups of the people who i put in charge and of my own fuckups.”

    oh, heres an aplogy…

    “Your government failed you, those entrusted with protecting you failed you, and I failed you… We tried hard, but that doesn’t matter, because we failed.”

    but i shouldnt knock bushie that much, bro has a hard time admitting failure of any sort (even though Google doesnt) so this is progress, right?

    we can only hope.

    although file this under wtf (or tmi):

    “Are we capable of dealing with a severe attack? That’s a very important question and it’s in the national interest that we find out what went on so we can better respond,” Bush replied.

    you know what dude, sometimes it is ok to lie to me.

    “you dont look fat in those jeans.”

    “you look great with a bald head.”

    “we are capable of dealing with a severe terrorist attack. in fact four years after 9/11 we’re better than ever.”

    people say im a bush-hater or a liberal or a partisan, im not. im an American who is the boss of these people and when they fuck up i get to say stop that.

    so im happy the repubs are actually paying attention to the polls – aka the people – and their fuckups.

    and im also happy the Dems are getting off their asses and stepping up.

    witness what a Dem leader said after Bushie made his apology:

    This Administration still hasn’t figured out the difference between spin and leadership. The President has done the obvious, only after it was clear he couldn’t get away with the inexcusable.

    President Bush has accepted Michael Brown’s resignation and admitted the buck stops in the Oval Office. But there are a lot of survivors who want to know whether this will change anything.

    Does the White House even understand the problem?

    The Administration had four years after September 11th to get this right, and they were caught unforgivably unprepared to deal with a major emergency here at home.

    Do they now understand that our government’s efforts and resources have been going to the wrong priorities?

    What are they doing to make sure this never happens again other than talking tough talk?

    so who was this angry/bitter/righteous leader?

    howard dean?

    ted kennedy?

    hillary clinton?

    i nearly choked on my mcnugget when i found out it was john f kerry.

    the f of course stands for about fucking time.

    theres a shift in the force people and its good news for all americans and therefore the world: the president has decided to act like a grownup and the democrats have decided to grow a pair.

    now lets see what they do about DuctTape Man running FEMA.

    ryan mcgee + travis + scott + zen for lunch
