You know, Bush Jr. is getting irritating. He has got this "poor,poor me" mentality. Everything that has happened to him in the last 3 years has been
his own doing.
Well I wouldn't necessarily say that. To an extent, yes, but he has also been blamed wrongly for some things. For example, the supposed "illegal
wiretapping." There is no illegal wiretapping. That was a lie started by the New York Times. It is the interception of international signals.
Or the blame for Hurricane Katrina. Last I checked, handling disasters is the job of the State and local governments, who in the case of Katrina
failed miserably in their task. The New Orleans government had been given the money to repair the levy multiple times, and the state of Lousisiana had
no plan in place whatsoever for any disaster.
So when disaster struck, they all demanded the Federal government come to their aid, as if there is anywhere in the Constitution saying that the Feds
are supposed to help you from disaster.
So the Bush Administration conducted the fastest response to such a large-scale disaster in this country's history, but for some reason the media
acted as if the response to Katrina and the ensuing chaos afterwards was all Bush's fault. It wasn't.
It was the fault of the State and local governments, who wrongly got away with not being blamed.
Now other stuff, like this immigration bill, I agree Bush is wrong about. Also that No Child Left Behind Act.
