BUSH TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR BLUNDERS
In an attempt to restore confidence with the American people and regain a respectable level of approval ratings. President Bush has finally come to grips with reality as he shoulders responsibility for the herendous natural disaster caused by hurricane Katrina. This should give the victims of the hurricane and the concerned citizens all across these United States some renewed semblance of comfort and hope. By admtting the hurricane diasster exposed serious conflicts and challenged the readiness aspects of the government at all levels. This is certainly viewed as a step in the right direction. A step that should signal immediate remedies and solutions to deter, alleviate, or better manage future natural or man made catastrophies in this era of a terrorist charged environment. And one that will give the American Citizens a feeling of being safe and secure to the extent of the unpreparedness experienced at the hands of Homeland security and that of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Since President has taken the buck stops here attitude it has shed some light, allayed some fears, and possibly mitigated some anger among most Americans that he and his Administration is getting back in touch with its concern for lending a helping hand for the betterment of all of humanity.A gesture which makes the case and the connection to his once proclaimed devout faith and belief in God; that he made known earlier on while seeking to become the President of the United States.
Also inherit in the midst of this entire situation is the revelation,unfolding and the uncovering of the cycle of poverty; along with the enormity of the real issues of poor people that seemed to be invisible to our leaders in America. Which has been echoed very clearly by legislators from both sides of the isle; reminding the American leadership its time to take a closeer look at the home front before chasing away to look atforeign shores. I think all americans would agree also it is time to take care of important matters here at home. Because charity should begin at home; then it should spread abroad.
