Taking responsibility 

We already saw Bush flawlessly execute The Incredible Triple Weasel:

"To the extent the federal government didn't fully do it's job right, I take responsibility," Bush said.
(via back)

And at the time, alert reader acorn asked us to give a "reasonable" example of what Bush could have said. The Democratic governor of Louisiana shows acorn how it's done:

"We all know that there were failures at every level of government: state, federal and local. At the state level, we must take a careful look at what went wrong and make sure it never happens again. The buck stops here, and as your governor, I take full responsibility," Blanco told lawmakers in a special meeting of the Louisiana Legislature.

No verbal gymastics, no weaselingl

Four little words: "The buck stops here."

Why is it so hard for Bush to say that?
