Fran Reveals Bush's Obstinate Cover Up

White House Homeland Security Advisor Fran Townsend worked hard not to indict her boss during the release of the declassified National Intelligence Estimate. Unfortunately some of her words serve as a stinging rebuke to George W. Bush.

"If I only cooperated with those who gave me a hundred percent of what I thought I needed or wanted, I wouldn't have a whole lot of allies around the world."

Bingo! Might President Bush consider applying such wisdom domestically as well? He sold himself as "the uniter" but his definition is alot like the one given above. His budget bill veto threat fits with "give me a hundred percent of what I want." His lack of allies helps explain his poor approval ratings. Later Fran incriminated herself when answering a question about finding Osama bin Laden.

It's not exactly easy. If it were easy he'd be dead.

Mrs. Townsend wrote the White House Lessons Learned report after Hurricane Katrina and her tome omitted the hospital with the highest number of patients deaths, LifeCare. Fran, why didn't the feds arrive quicker to evacuate hospital and nursing home patients sweltering in dead facilities?

It's not exactly easy. If it were easy, those people wouldn't be dead.

And by the way Fran, the owners of LifeCare, The Carlyle Group are blaming you in their wrongful death civil suits. How's that for gratitude? You leave them out of the report and their attorneys claim as soon as federal evacuation teams set up in New Orleans, all patients became wards of the federal government! You might want to march down Pennsylvania Avenue and give those senior Carlyle execs a piece of your mind. The press says you curse like a sailor, so sail away!
