Bush chatting up the public about problems with his presidency here:
“Former President George W. Bush says it was a “huge mistake” to let himself be photographed looking from Air Force One down at the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Bush reflected on the iconic photograph during an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer to promote his forthcoming memoir, “Decision Points.” The photo was published widely and only reinforced the view that the Bush administration didn’t act quickly enough or fully grasp the severity of the problems on the ground in New Orleans after the levees broke.
“Let’s get to the picture that we may have seen more of you in the last couple years of your presidency than any other picture,” Lauer said. “You’re sitting in Air Force One, flying back toward Washington. You fly right over New Orleans and you look out the window.”
“Yes,” Bush responded. “Huge mistake.””
Oh, so the trouble with the handling of Katrina was all that pesky photograph.
Got it. It’s all virtual reality.
