i'm going to bring this up again because something is really bothering me

no, it's NOT the fact bushwhacked lied. that stopped bothering me long ago. i know the whole administration lies (not to say that left leaning ones don't but there is a MIGHTY big difference between an under the table hummer and more than 2,000 of our sons and daughters lives being lost and i'm not even talking about katrina yet). they lie ALL of the time. they f**k up ALL of the time. they make BIG lies too. in reading some of the right leaning blogs yesterday, i saw some of them saying we (we being the ones with brains and a heart i guess) keep dragging out the OLD KATRINA WARHORSE. how it happened MONTHS ago and it's not relevant any more. we (again, we being the ones with brains and a heart i guess) have NOTHING else to pick on so we're bringing this "OLD" chestnut up again. honeys i have PLENTY to pick on believe me. this is but JUST one and it's way MORE important than a little white stained blue dress

do the bloggers in question know there are still about 2,000 MISSING from katrina? do they know goddess knows how many are STILL DISPLACED, HOMELESS, JOBLESS, SCHOOL LESS? do they know how EMPTY these people must feel? how f**king ABANDONED they must feel?

from media matters

Reporting on Bush pre-Katrina briefing, NY Times, Wash. Post, USA Today entirely forgot Bush claim that no one anticipated levee breaches
Summary: On March 2, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and USA Today reported on newly released video footage and transcripts documenting how, on the day before Hurricane Katrina made landfall, President Bush was warned -- and expressed concern -- about the possibility that the levees in New Orleans would be breached by the storm. But none of these reports mentioned that these new tapes further contradict the claim Bush made on ABC's Good Morning America several days after the storm hit that "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." which was
debunked even at the time.
By contrast, a March 2 Associated Press
report noted that, contrary to Bush's claim that the levee breaches were completely unexpected, "the transcripts and video show there was plenty of talk about that possibility -- and Bush was worried too." A March 2 Los Angeles Times article also suggested that the new footage conflicts with Bush's claim that the levee breaches were unanticipated................
