Here's One Democratic Senator – Where Are The Rest?
Here's Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey:
"President Bush's wake-up call came awfully late. We are watching this devastation unfold on our televisions for days and you have to ask, where is the federal government? The National Guard's first priority must always be to protect people at home. We should have had a significant amount of troops and supplies there on the ground Monday.Don't we have 43 other Democratic Senators? Where the hell are they?
"It was not enough for the president to bank his plane and look at the window and say, 'Oh, what a devastating sight.' Instead of looking out the window of an airplane, he should have been on the ground giving the people devastated by this hurricane hope."
