Except for not “cutting through bureaucratic red tape and quickly settling disputes among response agencies.” But, you know, how could the White House possibly have been expected to cut through all that government red tape, or settle disputes among such a bunch of incompetents?

Of course it doesn’t. Because when federal agencies fail in the future, there’s still got to be someone to blame.
