responsibility and blame

i don't want to get political here... though i suppose i have at some point. but i just read this and wanted to say: it's about time. i'm not a bush fan, but i can respect a person who claims responsibility. claiming responsibility is different from accepting blame. it says that i am now in charge of doing something different. i don't like the idea of blame because it produces something else entirely, like a desire to hide and pass the buck to someone else or make excuses for what happened wrong.

a lot of people have made a lot of mistakes when it comes to the katrina disaster... including the american people by forgetting that poverty is a real issue in this country. now i hope and pray that we will all step up and be held accountable and make a difference in this world we live in.

i don't know what the president will do next. he has a real opportunity and i hope he doesn't blow it.

Thanks so much for all of your comments on my blog.

You are welcome anytime!

I can't help but wonder if Bush is merely pretending to accept blame as a way of putting yet another poltical spin on things.
