Republicans continue to dodge the issue by insisting that the criticism being aimed at President Bush regarding Hurricane Katrina is motivated by politics and that its not constructuctive.

President Truman had a plaque on his desk that read: The buck stops here. Why is it that Bush seems to feel the buck never stops on his desk?
