What Me Worry? Heck No, I Don't Even Know Enough To Worry!

Our president evidently thinks that FEMA and its head Michael Brown's emergency response in New Orleans has been picture perfect.

From a Washington Post article highlighting House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi's news conference:

Pelosi, speaking at a news conference, said Brown had "absolutely no credentials" when Bush picked him to run FEMA.

She related that she urged Bush at the White House on Tuesday to fire Brown.

"He said, 'Why would I do that?'" Pelosi said.

"I said because of all that went wrong, of all that didn't go right last week.' And he said 'What didn't go right?'"

"Oblivious, in denial, dangerous," she added.
