In New Orleans, Bush Urges Volunteerism: "'If you are interested in helping the victims of Katrina, interested in helping them get back on their feet, come on down here,' Bush said. Williams thanked the president and offered to cook him dinner when her restoration project is complete.Back in Washington, Congress was again undercutting Bush's political restoration effort. As Bush was taking off for his morning flight here, Republicans and Democrats were arguing that the Bush administration's emergency-response agency is a disaster and should be overhauled. They cited the government's slow response to Katrina as evidence that the Federal Emergency Management Agency should be abolished and replaced with a new, more effective organization."
