George Bush --
I've thought long and hard about Katrina -- you know, could I have done something differently, like land Air Force One either in New Orleans or Baton Rouge. The problem with that and -- is that law enforcement would have been pulled away from the mission. And then your questions, I suspect, would have been, how could you possibly have flown Air Force One into Baton Rouge, and police officers that were needed to expedite traffic out of New Orleans were taken off the task to look after you?
So his regret about Katrina is not the botched response, the thousand deaths, the fact that New Orleans still hasn't recovered: it's that the first response that the White House came up with was the Louisiana as flyover country photo-op. That Super President didn't land and inspire people with his appearance. Even when he screws up, it's always about him.
