Fema Chief Resigns

Recommended Posts

President Bush when asked by a reporter what his thoughts were on Brown's resignation was that this was the first he's heard of it. He said when he gets back to Air Force One he'd call DC and find out what's going on.

At the same time Sen's. Frist and Clinton were giving their thoughts.

Apparently they were told before the president.

...and the incompetence just keeps on comin'...

Me thinks the days of our president living in a hermetically sealed wonderdome are over. His cabinet should include Information Minister... someone like myself that reads FARK and a hundred other news sources all day.

Maybe he should sign up for cnn instant messages to his cell phone.

I don't think so. Read this article about his management style.

"It's a standing joke among the president's top aides: who gets to deliver the bad news? Warm and hearty in public, Bush can be cold and snappish in private, and aides sometimes cringe before the displeasure of the president of the United States, or, as he is known in West Wing jargon, POTUS. The bad news on this early morning, Tuesday, Aug. 30, some 24 hours after Hurricane Katrina had ripped through New Orleans, was that the president would have to cut short his five-week vacation by a couple of days and return to Washington. The president's chief of staff, Andrew Card; his deputy chief of staff, Joe Hagin; his counselor, Dan Bartlett, and his spokesman, Scott McClellan, held a conference call to discuss the question of the president's early return and the delicate task of telling him. Hagin, it was decided, as senior aide on the ground, would do the deed."

Bush doesn't like to hear bad news, so his staff just doesn't tell him. Doesn't bode well for future emergencies.

Bush takes too many vacations anyway, If I were there I would be more than happy to tell him his vacations over.

Actually I meant the Presidency in general... not Bush. He wont change. Why should he?
