Raw Story – Email to Brown claims Bush was happy former FEMA head was taking heat for Katrina response: An “embarrassing email” leaked by former FEMA head Michael Brown to CNN quotes President Bush as saying at a Cabinet meeting held shortly after Katrina that he was pleased that Brown was taking most of the heat for the federal government’s roundly criticized response to the hurricane. “I’d rather they beat up on him than me or Chertoff,” President Bush allegedly said at the meeting, referring to the head of the Department of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff. The sender also thanked Brown for “diverting hostile fire away from the leader.”
