Why is it that Joe Lieberman can't even criticize President Bush without making it sound like a compliment?
Why not say something more meaningful, like this:
"President Bush deserves our scorn for invading Iraq on false pretenses, and as a result of his illegal and immoral war we were left critically understaffed in the National Guard and other emergency response agencies, which impeded the relief efforts significantly."
Maybe Senator Lieberman doesn't mention that because he voted FOR the war, and continues to insist it's a necessary policy. The $250,000,000 a day we're spending over in Iraq can buy a LOT of goddamned sandbags. And it would also rebuild and strengthen the levees, provide relief for people who lost their homes, and put a lot of money into the U.S. economy.
He has to know in his heart of hearts that he's complicit in the disastrous aftermath of Katrina.
