    ... the 2006 hurricane season as he was the 2005?

    I don't recall the President being blamed for the '05 Hurricane season. That is ludicrous. I DO remember him being blamed, along with other government officials, for his lack of a credible preparation and response to Katrina and Rita.

    I agree it's ludicrous, but nevertheless, true.

    The number of hurricanes was blamed on global warming by the pointy heads and Bush was blamed for the global warming.

    It was all part of the Bush blame game that liberals love to play.

    I shall look for the ludicrous links -- they related to global warning and Bush not signing the Kyoto Accord. The strength of 2005 hurricanes were stated to be related to or a result of global warning.

    No one doubts the lack of city, parish, state nor federal response to Katrina. Although response to Rita appeared to be better organized at all governmental levels. Realistically, comparing Houston to New Orleans is more than apples/oranges.

    The closest to actually blaming Bush for the hurricanes in those seemed to be the RFK Jr. article. I think there is a linkage to hurricanes and global warming, and Bush is an ostrich on the global warming issue. Still, to credit him with a hurricane season is attributing the fool with far more power than he has. I don't care what blogger writes about it. Like I said, where I fault Bush (along with Mayor Nagin and Governor Blanco) is their mishandling of the fiasco.

    You're doin' a heckuva job, Bushie!

    We do need to work with other countries to protect the environment on the only planet known to support our kind of life, but Bush doesn't single handedly have any such power.

    Your answer was very factual, until the Bushie sentence.

    As an aside, Bush did not single handedly have the power to invade Iraq, either.

    The consequences of Bush's inaction, if any, will come in a decade or so. If he's right, and there's no global warming, then he'll look fine. If sea levels rise, and storms get worse, it's one more hit for an already battered reputation.

    Bush was merely the initiator of the Iraq quagmire. The idiots running Congress did their share as well.

    I feel faint! I find myself in agreement with both Magnetic Poles and Galatian.

    Of course, I could still be a stopped clock - correct only twice a day.

    Confession is the first step toward cleansing :godisgood:

    1 John 1:9 (KJV1611 Edition):
    If we confesse our sinnes, hee is faithfull, & iust to forgiue
    vs our sinnes, and to cleanse vs from all vnrighteousnesse.
