Fox - Michael Brown Resigns From FEMA - Good For Agency, Good For The President

Reported by Donna - September 12, 2005

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith, we had 15 minutes of regular Studio B news and 45 minutes of coverage of the John Roberts hearings, where Brit Humes accidently called him 'Justice' John Roberts then corrected himself and called him Judge John Roberts.

The resignation of Michael Brown had just taken place and Smith went to Wendall Goler at the White House for an update. Goler said that the news had just came through after the president had wrapped up his third trip to the area and headed back to the White House.

Goler remarked that the president refused to criticize Brown or anyone else. He reported that the president said that the response was a good one, progress was being made, but there was a lot left to do.

Goler then reported that the president, along with the mayor and the governor took a trip through the city with a military convoy. (Comment: Is this the U.S. or Baghdad?)

Smith then came back on to report that the news was out of AP and they said that former Secretary Brown is making the move in the best interest of the agency and the best interest of the president.

Comment: Well, at least Brown's being truthful now. He didn't resign in the best interest of the American people (which it was) but in the best interest of the agency and the best interest of the president.

Anything to help the best interest of the president.

As for the president, he is still insisting that the response was a good one when the whole world saw that it was quite inadequate, with people dying right before our eyes? How much hubris does it take to make that statement?
