what you are seeing on TV

This is, in all honesty, the first time I can actually applaud the president's behavior. His handling of Hurricane Rita looks to be as cautious and extensive as possible. No doubt, hurricanes must hit somewhere once they enter the Gulf Coast. Bravo to the president and to Governor Perry; they are at the very least, doing all they can to coordinate a mass evacuation of the likely target areas.

The "pre-sponse" to Rita, however, is directly contrasted to the piss-poor response to Katrina (just a few weeks ago!). Everything they are doing right now should only reinforce how poorly they fumbled last time.

It is inexcusable that it took over 1000 deaths for the federal government to learn this lesson, but at least they have. At least they are doing the right thing this time.

Agreed. On the job training is not part of the position description for President.
