Bush response too slow, again!

Congressional Democrats today voiced outrage at the slow response of the Bush administration to a fire in a bus transporting elderly evacuees from Hurricane Rita. Congresswoman Diane Feinstein (D-CA) said, "People were dying in that bus, and where was President Bush? Where was FEMA? He should have been there carrying people off that bus. Have we learned nothing from Katrina?"

Representative Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said, "If we can't count on our President for leadership in times such as these, perhaps we need another Congressional investigation."

Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) said, "If the people on that bus had been white, you can bet that President Bush would have been right there, ready to help them."

Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) raised some tough questions: "How many of the people who survived this explosion were Bush campaign contributors? And how many of those who died were not? We are not getting answers to these critical questions from the White House."
