The MSM's myopic Bush-bashing has helped bring about this disaster.
Why wasn't Dan Rather doing real investigative journalism about New Orleans' increasingly precarious situation during this natural cycle of increased hurricane activity, instead of broadcasting lies about Bush's National Guard service?
Why weren't the environmentalists screaming about the way in which New Orleans was destroying the environment?
Why didn't Diane Sawyer insist that New Orleans officials require a sufficient number of lifeboats for each residence, in the same way that city codes require fire escapes?
Because if they did that it's no fun. These people LIVE to bash Bush. It matter not one iota to them how much they have to contort themselves to do it.
