Katrina may be “down the list” but Bush did display a political tin ear with his comment about “great job, Brownie” to his good-ole-boy FEMA director when there were shortcomings in the Federal response. Lord knows, the governor and mayor were screwing the pooch by the numbers so the Federal response needed to step it up a notch to cover the state/local SNAFUs.

What, exactly did the feds do wrong at the time?
I know what the local and state government failed to do.
What failure do you ascribe to the feds?
Forgetting the omniscience of hindsight, and the primacy of responsibility of local and state agencies.
