Republicans Realize Limits of Bush Administration

We’ve already seen plenty of conservative writers criticize Bush’s handling of Katrina and now we are seeing this extend to politicians. Rep. John Sweeney ( R-N.Y.) urged the Bush Administration to bring in Rudy Giuliani for help.

AP also reports that Newt Gingrich criticized the Bush administration for being sluggish and urged the president to name Giuliani as the White House point person for relief efforts. Gingrich said the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina “puts into question all of the Homeland Security and Northern Command planning for the last four years, because if we can’t respond faster than this to an event we saw coming across the Gulf for days, then why do we think we’re prepared to respond to a nuclear or biological attack?”
