Bush Goes Out Angry and Stupid

Bush held his final press conference today. It didn't go well. Take his answer to a question about the dismal government response to Hurricane Katrina.
BUSH: You know, people said that the federal response was slow. Don’t tell me the federal response was slow when there was 30,000 people pulled off roofs right after the storm passed...30,000 people were pulled off roofs right after the storm moved through. That’s a pretty quick response. Could things have been done better? Absolutely, absolutely. But when I hear people say the federal response was slow, then what are they gonna say to those chopper drivers? Or to the 30,000 that got pulled off the roofs?
Um. The chopper drivers weren't the ones who allowed thousands to sit in squalor for five days without food and water.

Also, you are a monster.
