What else can it be called?
With censoring the bad news, stealing resources for photo-ops, that delayed relief efforts, and outright, bald-faced lies in an attempt to take credit for something other people were doing (while Bush was on vacation and raising money), it is a wonder that people still think Dear Leader can do no wrong.
Update: This diary in Kos pretty much takes apart the "Bush told the mayor and/or governor to evacuate New Orleans" meme; if it were true, then it's a LIHOP (Let It Happen On Purpose) event.
There's a big difference between this and 9/11: there was -until the recent attempts at censorship- no double super secret cloak and dagger bullshit associated with this: it's all out in the open and a matter of public record what happened, and it simply can't be spun. (See the links here to see that it's slam dunk no doubt about it that FEMA screwed up, regardless of what state and local officials did.)
This post on Powerline is a good example of the uttler moral cluelessness coming from the right at present: Hindrocket is concerned with "Bush bashing," not trying to for a moment to think that there might be some responsibility by Bush (as well as state and local officials, where applicable) to this.
