Aaron Broussard is probably destined for bigger things, since he's apparently got that old Clintonesque touch. He appeared on Meet the Press earlier today and Tim Russert (VRWC #23) grilled him on his emotional appearance from three weeks back. As it turns out, a blogger had questions about his statements at that time, which MSNBC since verified: "Aaron Broussard's timeline was wrong".
The video is here, and a response from the right and from the left. USA Today downplays the appearance.
The full transcript is here, and this report says this:
Somebody should have told Broussard that his stock around the state and even in his own parish has made a nosedive since Hurricane Katrina and Meet The Press. To think that he would once again allow himself to be abused, make wild allegations, become emotional fodder, be the joke of the town is strong evidence that he is operating under extreme stress, lacks sleep, has terrible political advisors and needs a complete rehiring of his staff.
He claims that he misunderstood what his staff members told him, and he didn't feel like interrogating Rodrigue. Of course, he also gave a lot of fuel to those who wanted to immediately bash Bush when, in fact, the incident apparently occured the day of the hurricane and thus the feds had no responsibility for any rescue. But, what kind of "sick minds" and "black-hearted people" would dare fact-check his assertions?
