09/13/2005: Better Belated Than Never???
Well, Well, Well puts it , Ummm...Very Well...
Via Talking Points Memo is this about about the Conyers requested:
"report from the Congressional Research Service (one of the few parts of the government that can legitimately be called non-partisan) and asked them to review the record to see whether Gov. Blanco of Louisiana took the necessary steps in a timely fashion to secure federal assistance in the face of hurricane Katrina.
So, that must be WHY the Child-in-Chief [CIC] coughs up a belated admission and issues an “To the extent the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility," Bush said.
Ah, so it's "To the extent...", CIC fairly gags on a real acceptance of responsibility.
UPDATE: also via Talking Points Memo is this GEM about John Kerry's response to the CIC admission:
"John Kerry has a good line today on the president's responsibility moment: "The President has done the obvious, only after it was clear he couldn’t get away with the inexcusable."
