More Ineptitude From Chimpy and the Gang

In another glaring example of how much George Bush hates Americans and his complete incompetence in protecting the people of the U.S. from future terror attacks, the White House and several other executive branch agencies had failed to respond to requests made by the 9/11 Commission two months ago for updated information on the government's antiterrorism programs.

The White House has failed to turn over any of the information
requested by the 10 members of the disbanded Sept. 11 commission in
their renewed, unofficial investigation into whether the government
is doing enough to prevent terrorist attacks on American soil,
commission members said.

The members said that the Bush administration's lack of cooperation was
hindering a project that was otherwise nearly complete.

Thomas H. Kean, the former Republican governor of New Jersey who led
the bipartisan Sept. 11 commission, said he was surprised and
disappointed that the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department,
the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation
and several other executive branch agencies had failed to respond to
requests made two months ago for updated information on the
government's antiterrorism programs.


[...]

Timothy J. Roemer, a Democratic member of the commission and a former
House member from Indiana, said that the White House was being "tone
deaf" in withholding information from the Public Discourse Project.

"You'd think that the administration would be doing all it could to help
address some of the answers that the 9/11 commission proposed to make
the country safer," he said.


Why do they hate us so much? What did we ever do to them?

    I don;t think chimp hates us, I just think he thinks his superior simian brain is better than our normal brains.

    That paragraph pretty much says it all. In his view, he doesn't waste time on things he doesn't feel are important. Call it a personality flay. Just like his inability to admit mistakes.

    er, FLAW. Not flay. Although I'm certain there are a lot of people here who would LIKE to see him flayed.

    You are right, they did disband, but don't you think their recommendations deserve a follow up? President Bush should want to try to stop terrorism, right? Isn't that important?

    And right now, none of that is important to him as he's taking a five week vacation. The longest vacation of any president in 36 years. And we're at war, in case you forgot.
