Dems Play the Lame Game

This is just sad.
In a letter to the Senate's Homeland Security Committee chairwoman, Reid, the Senate Democratic leader, pressed for a wide-ranging investigation and answers to several questions, including: "How much time did the president spend dealing with this emerging crisis while he was on vacation? Did the fact that he was outside of Washington, D.C., have any effect on the federal government's response?"
At some point, the Democrats are going to have to make up their minds as to where the President belonged. Was it D.C.? Was it New Orleans? Was it in a holding pattern somewhere between?
At a news conference, Pelosi, D-Calif., said Bush's choice for head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency had "absolutely no credentials."
Well, I guess she'd know, since for thirty years Nancy Pelosi has been one of the nation's top...oh...never mind...
She related that she urged Bush at the White House on Tuesday to fire Brown.

"He said 'Why would I do that?'" Pelosi said.

"'I said because of all that went wrong, of all that didn't go right last week.' And he said 'What didn't go right?'"

"Oblivious, in denial, dangerous," she added.
You don't knock a softball question out of the park with a bunt.

Just give a detailed answer to a straight question: What did FEMA do wrong?

Congress will do the country no service if this sort of silliness is dignified with a public hearing.

There ought to be a probe, but it ought to come after independent career professionals have a chance to render considered judgement.
After the crisis.
