The buck stops passes through here

When disaster strikes, as it did the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, a lot of politicians are quite to eschew responsibility. Former state finance commissioner John Gunyou has an excellent illustration of the Take Responsibility Two-Step, performed by Governor Tim Pawlenty, Lt. Gov. Carol Molnau, and President George W. Bush.
Where's Harry Truman when you need him? Today's leaders seem to have a sign that reads, "The buck passes through here." The non-apology has become the refuge of those who'd rather act resolute after the fact, than actually demonstrate forward-thinking leadership.
