WaPo slam piece

I won't forward the latest WaPo slam piece on the Bush administration, but here is a sample:

Bush infuriated Blanco and other local officials when he sought late Friday night to federalize the relief effort and seize control of National Guard and other operations.

Let's make a few suggestions to the WaPo hacks:

Due to the failure of the state and city governments to act, President Bush attempted to take control of relief operations. The failure of Blanco and Navin to accept the federal control cost thousands of citizens their lives.


Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, local and state Democrats in Louisiana continued to insist they did not need federal supervision of relief efforts. Despite this refusal, Blanco and Navin continue to insist today that any errors were the fault of the federal government.
