Shameless Senior WH Officials Lying to Deflect Blame

Josh Marshall has been following the story that first the Washington Post printed a claim from some anonymous White House official that part of the delay in getting help to Louisiana was Gov. Blanco's fault for not declaring a state of emergency, calling her "uncertain and sluggish." Newsweek printed the same claim a week later, unsourced. The fact is, she declared a state of emergency August 26.

The same claim that Gov. Blanco was twiddling her thumbs and not acting to two different publications a week apart. It's becoming a bit clich├ęd, but the NY Times confirmed that the White House damage control is being run by...wait for it...Karl Rove and Dan Bartlett. Shameless liars.
