This truly may well be a sign of the Apocalypse, President Bush has actually taken responsibility for mistakes and failures on the part of his administration. I can honestly say that even though its kind of like Clinton finally admitting to the Lewinski affair being that public opinion and politics are pretty much forcing him to do this, but still, Bush jumps up a few notches in my book for taking responsibility for the mistakes made in the Katrina aftermath.

WASHINGTON - President Bush said Tuesday that he takes responsibility for any federal failures in dealing with Hurricane Katrina, adding that the disaster raised broader questions about the government’s ability to respond to natural disasters as well as terror attacks.
“Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government,” Bush said when asked about the federal response at a White House news conference with the president of Iraq.
“To the extent the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility,” he said. “I want to know what went right and what went wrong.”
