After Katrina: Hopelessness lifts, Democrats go on the offensive

As the recovery efforts continue in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast, as that overriding sense of hopelessness begins to lift and the death toll looks like it might actually be much lower than all those dire predictions last week, Democratic senators Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Barack Obama of Illinois, among others, went on the offensive Sunday in response to President Bush's handling of the crisis and subsequent Republican efforts to deflect attention away from Bush by pinnning the blame squarely on local officials.

I said much of what I have to say in a previous post. It's important, I think, to find out what went wrong, what could have been done better, and who (or what) is to blame, but it's a shame, however predictable, that partisanship has taken over.

Politics. As usual.

So much for the truth.
