If former FEMA Director Michael D. Brown didn’t realize how powerful Hurricane Katrina was, he’s going to have no idea what hit him as he gets sucked up into a new crisis of his own making.
Instead of following my advice (see The Blame Game revisited) or merely holing up in a spa somewhere newspapers aren’t delivered, he’s taking an ill advised step by fanning the flames. He should not be in attack mode. He should be licking his wounds and grateful he wasn’t indicted for lying on his resume. People don’t like incompetence, but they hate liars worse.
No amount of spin he places on this will turn back his role in Katrina. He should have been grateful for the chance to fade into obscurity.
