I'm a little disappointed

I should have been prepared for this, but I am honestly surprised at how easily the media has forgotten the Katrina anniversary in favor of covering Bush's attempts at reconstructing the bridges he's burned on the Iraq war.

Then again, starting out the week with rememberance of the most disastrous event of the Bush administration and ending the week with attention to the second-most disastrous...
His approval ratings have never rebounded from their post-hurricane plummet. A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted this month found that 51 percent of those surveyed disapproved of the way Mr. Bush had responded to the needs of hurricane victims, a figure statistically no different from last September, when 48 percent disapproved.
A series of polls taken over the last few weeks of August show that support for the war in Iraq among Americans is at an all-time low. Almost two-thirds of Americans in each of three major polls say that they oppose the war, the highest totals since pollsters starting asking Americans the question three years ago. Many of the polls were conducted in advance of the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on Washington and New York.
Well, if that's all they've got - bring it on.
