Thread Name: BS: Greater Federal Authority?
Subject: RE: BS: Greater Federal Authority?
I think a debate on that point is neither necessary nor promising, because the actual issue lies elsewhere. That issue is Mr. Bush's confusion about the difference between leadership and authority. (Lacking the former, he craves the latter.) The Feds had all the authority they needed, but lacked someone with the leadership skills to use it effectively.

"Git 'er DONE!"

Doesn't sound much like Dick Cheney, does it? Thus I blame Cheney for the Katrina miss-steps.
