  Bush Refused to Take Governor Blanco's Call

September 11, 2005: When no federal help was arriving after the storm, Louisiana's Governor Blanco called the White House to again speak with the President. President Bush could not be located, so she asked for chief of staff Andrew Card, who was also unavailable. Finally, after being passed to another office or two, she left a message with DHS adviser Frances Frago Townsend.

In a press release from the White House, President Bush issued a public apology to Governor Blanco, explaining that he was on the Internet searching for Tuesday, August 30th, newspapers that had "We Dodged a Bullet" or something to that effect on their front page.

"We realized that we had been caught asleep at the wheel, and Karl Rove immediately mobilized everyone in the White House, except the telephonist, to find any flimsy excuse they could lay their hands on," the statement said.
