Bush Administration Scolds Another Government For Not Dealing With Natural Disaster Effectively
For some reason, Laura Bush decided to be president today and gave a press conference attacking the Burmese government for the way it handled the cyclone that has killed upwards of 10,000 citizens. Laura Bush said, "Although they were aware of the threat, Burma's state-run media failed to issue a timely warning to citizens in the storm's path." How would the Bush administration have handled a large natural disaster, however?
Had the Bush administration -- hypothetically -- been dealing with a major natural disaster about to ravage the United States, numerous warnings would have been released in strong terms from the President himself, to underscore the severity of the situation. And if the President's efforts weren't effective enough before the storm, immediately afterwards he would've been devoting himself 24/7 towards managing the relief efforts, even if the citizens were very poor. This is how the Bush-led government would've handled the post-natural disaster situation if it had happened in the United States.
