Bush to address nation


Tue Sep 13, 9:43 AM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Under heavy fire over his response to Hurricane Katrina, President George W. Bush will address the nation from devastated Louisiana on Thursday at 9 p.m. EDT (0100 GMT), the White House announced.

"The president will talk to the American people about the recovery and the way forward on the longer-term rebuilding," White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters.

Earlier this week Bush made his third trip to the disaster zone, riding in an open, flatbed military truck through the flooded streets of New Orleans.

The president's overall job approval ratings have tumbled amid charges he was slow to respond to the hurricane.

I wouldn't be suprised if he gives the same old speech as he does for Iraq, but changes some of the words around. Same ol' reteric.

Anybody feel me on this?

A friend told me last night that she heard Bush was actually going to admit fault for the Katrina response. Has anyone else heard that?

I could see him doing that and then using his admission to boost his approval ratings.
