For all the mano-a-man bravado that he tries to show, George W. Bush is really a coward at heart.
Michael Brown, former Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), says that shortly before he was forced out of FEMA, he received an email from a high-ranking White House official. The email expressed George Bush's relief that Brown was taking the brunt of the blame for the federal government's slow response to Hurricane Katrina, as opposed to him or Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.
On September 25, Michael Brown received an email from a top White House official that read:
"I did hear of one reference to you, at the Cabinet meeting yesterday. I wasn't there, but I heard someone commented that the press was sure beating up on Mike Brown, to which the president replied, 'I'd rather they beat up on him than me or Chertoff.' "
Additionally, it says:
"Congratulations on doing a great job of diverting hostile fire away from the leader."
