Where are the liberal attack dogs?

Last night I was watching The Daily Show, which definitely has a liberal slant, but never hesitated to rip into Bill Clinton when he was president, or even afterwards.

Anyway, they showed clips from the recent released videos from before Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans where Bush is getting a briefing from an expert from the National Hurrican Center and is told that the levees may break.

Cut to a shot of Bush after the disaster saying, "I don?t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees".


I don't get it. Clinton lies about getting a BJ and he's impeached. Bush alone (not even including Cheney and others) lies about reason for going to war and his reponse to a national disaster, and there is nothing. No special prosecutor. No liberal attack dogs. Nothing.

From the AP:
In dramatic and sometimes agonizing terms, federal disaster officials warned President Bush and his Homeland Security chief before Hurricane Katrina struck that the storm could breach levees, put lives at risk in New Orleans? Superdome and overwhelm rescuers, according to confidential video footage.

Bush did not ask questions during the final briefing before Katrina struck Aug. 29, but assured soon-to-be-battered state officials: ?We are fully prepared.?

The footage ? along with seven days of transcripts of briefings obtained by The Associated Press ? show in detail that, while federal officials anticipated the tragedy that unfolded in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast, they were slow to realize they had not mustered enough resources to deal with the unprecedented disaster.

I hope all of you who voted for Bush feel really good about your vote. You should have written in John McCain.
