Dan, you blame the "Age of Bush" for "Mayor" Villalaraza's total eff up?

Phuleeeeeze dude.

Dude, puhleeeeze read it again. I'm not "blaming the 'Age of Bush'", I'm deriding what seems to be the endemic incompetence of our government leaders and agencies (local and national) when it comes to dealing with domestic crises — a problem that has certainly gotten considerably worse during Bush's tenure in office.

Do I blame Bush & Co for the failings of LA's Mayor and DWP? Not at all. But is it safe to say that the DWP's incompetence and Villaraigosa's lack of leadership is reminiscent (if far less catastrophic) than the Bush/FEMA Katrina show? I think it is.


Thanks for the clarification!
