Bush finally accepts responsibility

Well, sort of. Read between the lines:

"Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government," Bush said at a White House news conference today. "To the extent the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility."

But what does that mean? He accepts blame for responding too slowly, too inadequately, and too flippantly? Or he just accepts the possibility that, yeah, maybe the feds screwed up a bit, and, yeah (sigh), because I'm the head of the feds, the buck stops with me?
