Gov. Bush admits state underestimated demand for water, ice on South Florida staff & wires

Gov. Jeb Bush admitted on Wednesday the state underestimated the demand for ice and water in southeast Florida and didn't funnel enough supplies to the area immediately after Hurricane Wilma roared through.

So, I guess the answer to my *rhetorical* question above would be, Read on:

It didn't work as well as it should have yesterday," said Gov. Jeb Bush, referring to Tuesday's long lines of frustrated residents, many of whom left distribution sites empty-handed.
"My expectation was that within 24 hours we'd have our points of distribution set up."

Well - you did have almost a WEEK to prepare. It was, after all, the strongest f*cking storm in history just a few days ago...when it was moving 3-5 MPH in Mexico, don't you think you could have done a little more advance prep for the strongest storm ever recorded???

Kind of reminiscent of when the entire country (and the world, for that matter) watched Katrina hit Florida, and then work its way up as a Cat 5/Cat4 storm toward NOLA, newscasters, newspapers, blogs, etc. all covering the obvious and impending disaster... and when the levees broke, FEMA/Bush/HSA scratching their as*es and saying "Gee whiz, we had NO IDEA the storm was bad."

"We didn't meet those expectations and I accept responsibility for that," [Bush] said.

Well, that is more than your brother the chimpy pres would do, I'll give you that. Not much consolation though for the mothers with babies waiting for safe water...

Meanwhile, Michael "Heckava Job, Brownie" Brown gets his $12K/month contract extended ... again.

What's wrong with this picture??
