Daily Kos: Dean takes aim, hits bullseye

From Dean to Kos to me to you. This blog may be an echo chamber, but I try and make the echoes interesting. Daily Kos - Dean takes aim, hits bullseye:

Howard Dean:
'Based on today's reports, it seems clear that President Bush's visit today is just another callous political move crafted by Karl Rove. It's just appalling to see how quickly President Bush and Karl Rove have mobilized a political strategy in their own defense, but simply failed to mobilize a swift response to either keep the people in the Gulf Coast region safe in the first place or aid the victims in the aftermath of the storm.

'Thousands of people have lost their lives. Our nation faces difficult times as we address the painful aftermath of Katrina, yet President Bush is worried about shifting blame and passing the buck? Shouldn't he be worried about restoring stability, plans to evacuate survivors, and ensuring that our communities have the resources they need to help the victims of this tragedy rebuild their lives? Now is a time for leadership not partisanship. This is one failure we will not allow Rove and the GOP attack machine to spin away with their usual barrage of photo-ops, misinformation, smear campaigns and press conferences.'

Amazing seeing the urgency in the administration's actions the past few days -- not to help the people of the gulf coast, but to help themselves.
