"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Disaster - Coming to Your Town Next

Senator Harry Reid takes the administration to task in front of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and warns them that Bush team's inaction could make their city next on the catastrophe list.

Cities are at risk because the Bush administration is too preoccupied with its political problems to properly prepare for another natural disaster or terrorist attack, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid told mayors from around the country Friday.

"Any one of your cities and towns could be the next New Orleans," Reid said at a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. "The federal government owes it to you and your citizens to be prepared the next time disaster strikes."

****************************

Reid said the poor choices of the administration and Republicans in Congress are also evident in steps securing the nation after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Efforts to spend more money for emergency workers in cities were rejected as well as efforts to restore money for extra police, he said.

But, if Bush makes the nation safe, then there can't be another attack, and how will he manage to keep up the fear factor without one? How will he justify (almost plausible excuse) cancelling elections and staying in office as the 'war chief' without some kind of 'terrorist' attack?
