The Federal Government Is Learning - Democrats Still Complaining

The Democrats are upset that the federal government is taking Hurricane Rita more seriously than it took Hurricane Katrina before it struck:

"It's nice to have the Bush administration recognize the importance of a federal response to Rita, but why weren't they proactively mobilizing and organizing like this for Katrina?" said Rebecca Kirszner, a spokeswoman for Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada.

"These are the questions that need to be asked by an independent commission," Kirszner said.

So, we need an independent commission to tell us why the Federal government's response to Hurricane Rita is better than it was for Hurricane Katrina? Maybe the federal government is taking Hurricane Rita more seriously because they LEARNED from their experiences with Hurricane Katrina. Just a thought.
