JFAI (Just freaking admit it) II

Yahoo News reports that the white house does not like the report on the Katrina disaster response disaster that is to be sent up from congress. From the story we read:
"I reject outright the suggestion that President Bush was anything less than fully involved," said White House homeland security adviser Frances Fragos Townsend.
The entire non koolaid drinking universe knows this is not the case Ms. Fragos because we have the pictorial evidence.

Here is Mr disaster involvement eating cake with John McCain [in Arizona] Monday Aug. 29, the day that the Hurricane struck... Marie Antoinette would be proud.

Here is the fully involved president on Tuesday Aug. 30, the day AFTER Katrina struck doing his best Nero impression: Strumming a musical instrument [in San Diego] as New Orleans drowns.

The truly amazing part here is that the white house would make this claim knowing full well that these pictures displaying the lack of involvement by the president are readily available to anyone who cares to do the most basic search. This claim of involvement is yet another example where the evidence is clear, but the administration can not bear to admit their obvious mistakes.

On a cheerful note, I would like to acknowledge a report from the Republican controlled congress that demonstrates, in at least this one instance, a determination to take their oversight role seriously. Congratulations. After 27 straight posts in which I discuss congressional oversight, here is one example where I do not wind up calling the Republican congress administration toadies!
