Blanco, Nagin admit their mistakes

Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin finally grew a backbone and admitted their part in the failures concerning Hurricane Katrina (both pre- and post-storm).

Instead of owning up to their errors early on, they now seem like also rans compared to the President taking responsibility. In his comments, he stated:

"Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government," Bush said at a joint White House news conference with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani.

"And to the extent that the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility. I want to know what went right and what went wrong," said Bush.

As Sister Toldja wrote at Blogs For Bush:
So now we've come full circle. The "big three" have accepted some of the blame for the pre- and post-Katrina responses. The issue remaining on the blame front is to how much each should shoulder. The usual suspects assert that it's all Bush's fault. The truly informed on this issue know otherwise.
Don't forget that the President will be addressing the nation tonight at 9EDT from Louisiana.
