Better late than never. President Bush, today, finally took responsibility for government failures in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Keep in mind the Hurricane blasted through Louisiana and the Gulf States two weeks ago and he has received intense criticism from the media, Americans and some members of his own party - not to mention the fact that his poll numbers continue to plummet.
"Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government," Bush said at a joint White House news conference with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani. "To the extent the federal government didn't do its job right, I take responsibility."
Now let's hope that Mr. Bush does the right thing and investigates the horrible government failures and makes the necessary changes in the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) before another catastrophe occurs and more lives are lost.
Keep in mind Hurricane Ophelia is bearing down on the Carolina Coast, at this writing, and hurricane season doesn't end for another 2 1/2 months. Sobering isn't it?
