Meet the Press

Comments by Martie
I am appalled at what I saw on “Meet the Press" today. Tim Russert interviewed the Secretary of the US Department of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff today, September 4, 2005.

It has now been one week since the storm and people are still dying! It was apparent that he was parroting what someone told him to say. He kept saying the same thing over and over again which amounted to nothing but PR. He was "staying on message" but it was so apparent that he was clueless.

What I wanted Russert to ask him was what he had been doing for the last four years PRIOR to Katrina. What preparations he had made to get ready for this situation that had been predicted. I wanted to know if he could account for ANYTHING THAT HIS DEPARTMENT HAD DONE PRIOR TO THE STORM. PLEASE TIM ASK HIM , " NAME ONE THING YOUR DEPARTMENT DID PRIOR TO THE STORM?" It's not like you didn't have ample warning, Mike!
