My point is that both Brown and Blanco were ill-prepared to handle this crisis to an alarming extent. While, I concede that Bush was far too concerned with political protocols and stepping on toes in this instance, I have a hard time making the "summary leaps" that you do about Bush.
To say that Bush "refuses to do something to save lives because he is afraid of the political ramfications " is really just silly and inflammatory.
