Bush -- My Committment "Means Something"

From George's interview with Brian Williams: “When it’s all said and done, the people down here know that I stood in Jackson Square [a year ago] and said, ‘We’re going to help you,’ and we delivered,” he said. “What matters is that we help the good people here rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, and we’re going to do that.

“You know, commitments in politics sometimes mean nothing,” Bush added. “I made a commitment that means something.”

He should be committed. While he admits to Katrina being a mess, the fact is, he became contrite and made a "committment" days after he should have gone into action. Nobody pretends the President should be Superman, but when a city is suffering from a disaster of this magnitude and you're too busy honoring your committment to Mark Wills and his gift of a guitar, or to giving John McCain a birthday cake, you aren't a leader. You're the bonehead drunk college boy you've always been.

Funniest part, Bush saying I have an "ecelectic" reading list.
