A financial Katrina?

Reading the Times editorial today on the spreading financial crisis, and the big story it broke on Tuesday, it sure feels that way.  Like Katrina it wasn't the event itself that was so bad, or even the government's lack of anticipation or preparedness; it was the lack of a sufficient government response once the warning signs appeared and demanded action.

Can there be any doubt now that President Bush has simply been the worst President in history? We will be digging out from his mess for a very long time.
