One Year Later

Howard Dean said on Wednesday:

The response to Katrina, was effectively the end of the Presidency for Bush. People all of the sudden saw the small man behind the curtain. People in America and throughout the rest of the world, for a long time have believed that Americans can fix anything, that we are better organized, and better managed, and managed better than anybody and if something really awful happens - Call on the Americans.

For the first time in our lifetime and the world's lifetime since World War II, since before World War II, we suddenly saw an American President just descend into failure.
Thank You Dr. Dean for speaking the truth. RJ Eskow over at Crooks and Liars has a great post up about The Third-World-ization of the USA. One important fact that he brings up is "American Society of Civil Engineers last year graded the nation "D" for its overall infrastructure conditions, estimating that it would take $1.6 trillion over five years to fix the problem." Just who do we blame for giving this cost to our children? Do we blame just Bush or do we include in that the comatosed voters who cast their vote for him.

So now that Ernesto has been upgraded to a Hurricane we have to contend with fucking spin from a political appointee of Bush's, on Fox News Sunday. We all watched the devastation of New Orleans because of the lack of repair to the levees by the Bush Government. Yesterday we did not get very good news from the head of the Army Corps of Engineers:
Despite aggressive efforts to repair the New Orleans levee system following the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, it isn't clear yet whether it could withstand a hurricane with heavy storm surge this year.
