When the hurricane first hit, I jokingly said, "I blame the government." And Christie's mom, I've been told, blames Bush personally for the whole thing. It's good fun, and gives us something else to talk about besides flood waters and wind damage.

But then I read articles like this one and this one, and I wonder how differently things might have turned out if we'd had someone in the White House who believed in the good that good government can do. Someone who didn't send our National Guard off to fight in an elective war, instead of keeping them at home where they could do the kind of work they signed up for. Someone, well, competent.
