Tim blasted Bush for saying he didn't know the levees could be breached. He said, " The roll of the government is to protect its people." Tim also brought up one of the biggest factors of all. After 9/11 and all the communications problems between the policeman and fireman that was a big factor in so many deaths. This President pledged in their honor never to let that happen again. What have they been doing for four years? Imus brought up the racial angle wondering if Beverly Hills had been hit how would the response be. "...the right people didn't care enough about those people period."
