USATODAY.com - Bush pushes Rita readiness, local evacuation efforts: "He promised a big role for the federal government but, with conservatives' alarm growing at the fast pace of disaster spending, promised to 'make sure your money is spent wisely.' In his speech to the Republican Jews, Bush also pledged to keep focused on fighting terrorists.
'They're the kind of people that look at Katrina and wish they had caused it,' Bush said."
Boy, you read this, and you almost forget that the money wisely being spent on disaster recovery is going to Haliburton, the company being investigated for overcharging the government for services in Iraq (and who Dick Cheney works for...). And if the terrorists wish they had caused the damage that Katrina did, how does the Bush administration feel, considering that it was diverting funds away from levy repair and maintenance helped cause the disaster in the first place. Not to mention the pretty pathetic emergency response to the disaster.
