Quote of the Day: “I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees.”


Okay, so it's an old quote from last August, but it's destined to become a timeless classic in the annals of the American presidency. Especially now that a new video has been released confirming that the President was, in fact, briefed on the impending danger to New Orleans' levees a full day before Hurricane Katrina hit the Crescent City.

So, as we've seen before and, no doubt, as we will see again, President Bush seems to have no problem with lying to the American people. His statement, two days after Katrina hit, claiming that nobody anticipated the breach in the levees was just that: a lie! Of course people anticipated it. And he knew it.

President Bush is a liar, plain and simple. Sure, President Clinton lied about a personal relationship that was nobody's business but his and his family's. Tragically, though, President Bush's lies actually have resulted in the deaths of countless people around the world. In Iraq. In New Orleans. And who knows where else?

Impeachment? Nah, that's too civil for this liar. He belongs in prison. Close the cell door and throw away the key. He's nothing short of a disgrace and an embarassment.

So where do Nagin and Blanco get any blame for any of this?

This isn't about assigning blame, per se. It's about lying to the American public. Bush lied when he said that nobody anticipated the breach of the levees. Either that or he wasn't paying attention, which would bring up the incompetence issue.

There's blame to go around, but Bush failed miserably at the federal level. And...he lied.
