Putting all the blame on Bush is cynical. Blanco was criticized was also criticized as were local and state officials. Don't be nieve.Bush taking two days to come off his vacation to address the Katrina damages. Sending a FEMA director, with horse show experiences, to give aid and comfort to the Katrina victims. Releasing pictures of himself looking sadly out the window at the damage.
Believe it or not the charge to ignore the signs was led by Barney Frank, and I believe the issues came up in 2006 when Democrats assumed control of Congress.Ignoring danger signs in the housing boom (even if the democrats did the same thing, the republican were in control).
And Michelle Obama said for the first time she was proud of her country, it goes both ways and no one on either side is immune to stupid things that people within their own party say. And to put Gramms quote into context, he was talking about people complaining about America declining due to a loss of competetiveness. He didn't just say that we are a bunch of whiners.Gramm saying the nation were abunch of whinners.
And yet it hasn't gotten any better since Obama has been elected.McCain saying the economy was fine.
I could go through a whole lot of missteps made by Biden and Obama, but you just won't believe them so keep drinking the kool-aid.Palin, her missteps was SNL's gain, not being able to name which papers she reads and governing a state next door to Russia made her verse in international affairs.
Actually I was talking more recently, in the last six months Spitzer, Richardson, Clinton, Blagojevich, Dixon, Burris and Geithner have all come under scrutiny or indictment. All you talked about were events that happened years ago or during the election. Might want to read a little more.the RNC leadership candidate special christmas CD. Attacking the union salaries. Sorry if it seems like I'm Bush bashing, McCain bashing, Gramm bashing and Pallin bashing, but you asked. The voters remembered these missteps when they stepped into the voter booth back in Nov. If Bush had gotten Osama's head instead of take us on his magical Iraq tour, Obama may never had won.
