Bush noticed Katrina failures: When they were screaming!
Bush is going on ABC World News tonight to do an interview.
This is a pretty horrifying exchange:

VARGAS: When you look back on those days immediately following when Katrina struck, what moment do you think was the moment that you realized that the government was failing, especially the people of New Orleans?

BUSH: When I saw TV reporters interviewing people who were screaming for help. It looked - the scenes looked chaotic and desperate. And I realized that our government was-could have done a better job of comforting people.

You might have stopped playing your guitar in San Diego and paid a little more attention! This is a remarkable exchange.
