Bush Takes Responsibility For Failures Of Response: “President Bush yesterday said he takes personal responsibility for the federal government’s stumbling response to Hurricane Katrina, as his White House worked on several fronts to move beyond the improvisation of the first days of the crisis and set a long-term course on a problem that aides now believe will shadow the balance of Bush’s second term.

‘Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government,’ Bush said at a White House news conference with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani. ‘And to the extent that the federal government didn’t fully do its job right, I take responsibility. I want to know what went right and what went wrong.'”
