Look Toto Its Another Bush Failure
Posted by nytexan on May 8, 2007
In light of the recent disaster in Kansas, can Bush or the GOP actually convince us that we are protected? Governors have been complaining for several years that their states are vulnerable because their guard and equipment are in Iraq and Afghanistan. But those concerns and complaints have fallen on deaf ears. So, I find it very insulting that Tony Snow would blame the problems with Kansas preparedness and clean up on Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. She’s available, so it must be her fault.
It’s so typical of this administration to attack a person instead of fixing the problem. It’s obvious to me that the lessons of Katrina and Rita have yet to be learned by this administration. Instead they stand by and play the blame game.
Why does Kansas have to bring in private contractors cleanup? Shouldn’t Homeland Security send resources to any governor when they need it? Doesn’t Homeland Security have equipment strategically placed, like they said they did? Probably not, because their trying to figure out what to if their blackberries go down again.
Lets not forget FEMA who is Johnny on the spot; they’re sending trailers to tornado alley. Brilliant idea! I guess the kind people of Louisiana, who are still waiting for their trailers, will understand especially when the next tornado flies those trailers over their state.
The GOP is constantly telling us how safe we are, how ready we are for an attack or a disaster. I think not. The tornado in Kansas once again shows the incompetence and arrogance of Bush and his administration.
