What Role Did President Bush Play in the New Orleans Nightmare, Part II?

If I'm going to defend President Bush, then I should criticize him too, when information like this comes out:

"You have got to be kidding me"

"Memo to Bush: Fire Michael Brown"

The first link is from Brendan Loy's weblog, The Irish Trojan's Blog. He is one the relatively few people who specifically and publicly forecast the scale and depth of devastation that was very likely going to follow in hurricane Katrina's wake. He actually has more than one story posted now on some disturbing problems with the Bush administration response.

The second post is from the website of Michelle Malkin, a conservative journalist and pundit who is very supportive of President Bush. Michael Brown is the head of FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency).

Update: Click here for the latest on Michael Brown and his reassignment back to FEMA headquarters in Washington, D.C.: "Michael Brown Update".
