Bush accepts some responsiblity for Katrina debacle

News media today give full coverage to Bush's admission testerday that the federal government bungled the Katrina rescue effort and his statement that, to the extent the federal government screwed up, I take responsibilty. From the TV coverage it was clear that he couldn't look at the cameras with a straight face as he said this. The spin doctors had concluded that unless W did this he would continue to slide in the polls. Will the American people swallow this? Maybe. after all there are a lot of naive people out there.
