    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi used the Democrats' weekly radio address Saturday to tout her party's passage of legislation to implement major recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.
    ...

    The legislation would shift money to high-risk states and cities, expand screening of air and sea cargo and put money into a new program to ensure that security officials at every level can communicate with each other.
    ...

    "We will have done in six months what previous Congresses failed to do for almost six years," said Pelosi, D-Calif.
    ...

    "Implementing the recommendations will fundamentally change the way the president and the Congress deal with matters related to terrorism, making us more unified and more effective," she said. "That is because this bill closes loopholes and weaknesses that terrorists seek to exploit."

    oh yes, the "do-nothing" Dem controlled legislative branch... actually with a plan and doing something...

    yeah, didn't Boy King actually cut funding for anti-terrorist security measures in New York and/or D.C. a couple years ago? something about spreading the money out elsewhere...

    someone link me if they remember it and can find it...

    Anti-Terror Funding Cut In D.C. and New York

    By Dan Eggen and Mary Beth Sheridan
    Washington Post Staff Writers

    The Department of Homeland Security yesterday slashed anti-terrorism money for Washington and New York, part of an immediately controversial decision to reduce grant funds for major urban areas in the Northeast while providing more to mid-size cities from Jacksonville to Sacramento. ...

    This one makes sense. It won't be vetoed. When a sensible, non partisan bill is introduced, you'll get this kind of cooperation. "The House passed the bill Friday on a 371-40 vote, a day after the Senate passed it 85-8. The White House said the president would sign it".

    Actually Harold, you'll probably be shocked to learn that indeed you can enhance security in the USA without trampling on civil liberties.

    .



    Let me get this straight: Geo Bush is bad because he is spending too much on national security, on fighting those who would be crossing the Rio Grande and lighting up the Capitol and the Golden Gate bridge like they were 4th of July fireworks, but Geo Bush is also bad because "he cut spending" on security.

    Oh, I get it: Bush is always bad, no matter what!!

    Pass the tin foil, and the bile.
