Not Because Bush is a Texan Though

FEMA: Dean Prep Far Exceeds Katrina

The dirty cynical bastard in me wants to think that the prep for Hurricane Dean is so much further ahead of where Katrina was is because its Texas, the President's home state and not because they learned the painful and expensive lesson from Katrina.

I have a difficult time not imagining that George Bush was far more interested and involved in preparing for this potential disaster because the disaster was targeting his state.

I'd like to think that he learned a valuable lesson in the aftermath of Katrina. But I don't think he's learned anything, I think he's just trying to do everything he can to save his peeps.

Not that there's anything wrong with that. But he should want to help protect and prepare all of America, not just his corner of the nation.
