Deja Vu All Over Again....

Or why politicians are among the living dead.

WASHINGTON – Two Democrats who might seek the White House again in 2008 criticized President Bush for his response to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, assailing the suspension of wage laws while urging a concerted effort to aid the poor.

Sen.John Kerry of Massachusetts and former Sen. John Edwards spoke separately Monday on the government’s handling of the catastrophe and on the broader issue of poverty in the United States.

As if these gentlemen have ever done anything more than blab… or , in Kerry’s case, buy cars and houses for himself.

In an interview after his speech, Kerry said: “What the president has done with FEMA has degraded it, politicized its responsibilities. It’s irresponsible.”

But wasn’t it the Democrats who put FEMA under Homeland Security? Oh, never mind.
