George W. Bush, it seems, has once again been outed as a liar. Not long after Katrina hit, the president appeared on TV and told America: "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees."
We knew he was lying at the time, because it wasn't news to anyone that NOLA's levees were in bad shape. Now, (ok, last week) the AP has discovered that Bush attended a briefing THE DAY BEFORE KATRINA HIT where federal disaster officials warned Bush that the storm could
At the briefing, Bush didn't ask a single question; later he told state officials that he was "fully prepared" (which as it turns out, he wasn't)
It comes down to this: George W. Bush lacks the competance to serve as president. We thought this was true back in September, when we presumed, simply, that he was innocently unaware of what civil engineers and disaster experts had been saying for years.
Now it turns out he was VERY much aware of the coming danger, yet he sat on his hands anyway.
