Ditto, Part One

Okay, I will join the chorus and say that Bush should (he won't) fire FEMA head, Mike Brown (AKA, "Brownie"). I'm sorry, but having man whose prior experience was looking after horses and giving lots of money to the President's campaign lead the agency that is charged with dealing with natural and man-made disasters has to be the worst HR decision ever made. If this guy can't get it together for a hurricane, how could he handle another 9/11 style attack?

And I don't know about you, but all those voters who trusted Bush because he was better suited to handle security issues have to be scratching their heads.

And while we are at it, Homeland Security Head Mike Chertoff needs to go too. When told by an NPR reporter about the people stuck at the convention center, he discounted the story, even though it had been on the news for hours. This is the guy we are trusting to prevent Osama from striking us again?

The President said he would investigate what went wrong. I don't think it's that hard: fire the "Mikes."

Oh, James Lee Witt, where are you?

(I know, he's in Louisiana.)

But how much is this standard practice in the Bush administration? In administrations in general?

I know there was a big uproar in the Peace Corps community when he appointed Gaddi Vasquez to run the agency; Vasquez had ZERO experience in the arena of international development and his only claim to 'fame' was being on the Orange County government during their bankruptcy.

The RPCV (PC alums) community submitted a list of suggestions ot the administration of Republicans who would be far more qualified than Vasquez but he persisted on with the man who'd been an important fundraiser for him.
