What didn't go right?

Nancy Pelosi met with Bush and urged him to fire FEMA head Michael Brown over what went wrong with the response to Hurricane Katrina. Bush's response... "What didn’t go right?" Now, over the past 5 years, I've grown quite accustomed to our "president" saying some dumbass things, and coming off as an arrogant prick, but this really takes the cake. What didn't go right? It's not like I would expect the guy to take any responsibility for anything since he's never taken responsibility for anything in his entire life. But to put on a straight face and ask "what didn't go right" is like him pissing on the corpses that are still floating around New Orleans waiting to be identified. What didn't go right is that he stayed on vacation for two days while one of our country's most historic cities was being destroyed. It took him 3 days to even say anything about it. It took the government 5 days to start helping while New Orleans turned into swampy anarchic hell. What didn't go right? Apparently, the only thing that didn't go right for the administration is that there was a major national tragedy that they weren't able to exploit for political points this time. But don't worry, when it's time to hold the 2008 republican convention, New Orleans might be rebuilt enough for them to spend a week, hug some poor folks, pretend they like jazz, and enjoy all of the fine adult entertainment establishments.
