A Lost Opportunity...

I was hoping President Bush would use the State of the Union speech to rally the nation in support of a Marshall Plan type effort to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.

What we got was lots of talk about fighting "terrorism" but not a word about commitment to help the people who have been the victims of the worst natural disaster in American history.

Makes me wonder about "compassionate conservatism."
