The Bush Fluffing Times


Yesterday, President Bush said, "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees." The NYT backs him up, "GOVERNMENT SAW FLOOD RISKS, BUT NOT LEVEE FAILURE." TP isn't so sure that. Here, for example, is a story last year from the AP, nabbed from Nexis: "Officials have warned that if a major hurricane hits New Orleans, thousands of people could be killed and the city could be flooded for weeks as flood waters breach the levees ringing the city.

One wonders if there's any bullshit administration spin point the Times won't print.
