"The president's comment was that everybody was caught by surprise, and we'll have to wait and see" what U.S. action is necessary, said Sen. Robert Bennett, R-Utah, of his White House meeting with Bush on Tuesday. "I think all of us can say we had no idea this was coming."
How is it that the President of the United States had no idea that a potentially life-threatening illness was within the realm of possibility for an 80 year old man?
This is the Bush administration's next Katrina, if Castro dies. "Nobody ever predicted the levees would break. That's why we didn't prepare for it." "Nobody had any idea this (death of Castro) was coming. That's why we didn't do one jack-shittin' thing about it." Jesus Christ these people... "giddy" according to CNN, yet they haven't prepared for this one whit, and are only now scrambling to pass ineffective legislation today, when we should have had a plan literally four DECADES in the making.
