Is this a joke? Bush to 'investigate' what went wrong

“And the reason it’s important is, is that we still live in an unsettled world. We want to make sure that we can respond properly if there’s a WMD (weapons of mass destruction) attack or another major storm. And so I’m going to find out over time what went right and what went wrong.”
your President – and self-proclaimed principal investigator – on the planned probe into who f*cked up in response to Katrina

He’s going to personally uncover the truth for you, dear readers. Does he think we’re stupid? No wait, check that — the 59+ million that voted for this numnut can be fooled — but I’d say even a sizable number of those sheeple won’t accept this flaming pile of crap.

President George W. Bush and two U.S. senators announced separate investigations into the federal response to Hurricane Katrina following complaints from local officials and residents that emergency services authorities were poorly prepared for the disaster.

Bush also said he is dispatching Vice President Dick Cheney to the Gulf Coast to assess recovery efforts and determine whether the government is meeting its goals for rescuing survivors and restoring public services.

The president said after meeting with his Cabinet today that he intends “to lead an investigation to find out what went right and what went wrong” in the government’s reaction.

…Separately, Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine, chairwoman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said the panel intends to probe the government’s “woefully inadequate” response to the storm. Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut, the committee’s senior Democrat, said the government “did not respond to Hurricane Katrina as we expected and needed it to.”

…Asked if Bush supported an investigative commission, [Spin boy] McClellan replied: “The president wants to make sure that we take a look at what happened and how the response efforts were undertaken and we’ll make sure there’s a good thorough analysis done but now is the time to remain focussed on the most important priorities and that is the people in need.”
