"To the extent the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility," Bush said.
If you ask Americans their opinion on President Bush's response to Hurricane Katrina, they will have a lot to say on the subject, mostly negative. President Bush was supposed to be such a wonderful president, but everyone can see he is very unorganized and not as clever as he claims to be.

The victims of Hurricane Katrina needed immediate aid which wasn't provided. A catastrophe like that is not something to put on your to-do list.
The hurricane hit the Gulf Coast Monday, August 29 destroying everything in its path. Every single store and house in the area was either destroyed or damaged. Thousands died and many more are missing, while our president sat in the Oval Office and thought about that he wanted for dinner.
The Weather Channel predicted when and where the hurricane would hit, so that leaves me to wonder why so many inhabitants decided to stay in their homes and wait it out. Some didn't have the money or transportation to leave and some didn't want their houses to be destroyed; but if a house isn't built sturdy enough, it will collapse. Many did try to leave, but the highways were jammed and their only option was to turn back and go home.
