In January, we profiled former FEMA director Michael Brown -- the man about whom President George W. Bush said, "Heckuva job, Brownie" circa the Hurricane Katrina response -- after he was named a fulltime KOA talk-show host.
But Brown doesn't think Barack Obama has done a heckuva job dealing with the oil spill off the Gulf Coast. Indeed, he went on Fox News yesterday to argue that Obama has dragged his feet responding to the disaster in order to justify putting the kibosh on expanded offshore drilling, which he's publicly supported but, according to Brown, actually opposes.
Brown got the chance to defend his labyrinthine logic this morning on AM 760 -- a tough task under any circumstances, but one that was made even more difficult because he faced persistent cross-examination from host David Sirota. Listen to their debate by clicking here, and look below to see Brown dishing with Fox News' Neil Cavuto.
