     After enduring harsh criticism for eating cake and playing guitar during the Hurricane Katrina disaster, President Bush rushed to the California wild fires and did everything he could to help.

·        Residents finally returning to their homes in Rancho Bernardo were stuck in traffic for hours while the presidential motorcade passed through, and delays left firefighters longing for food and showers. … [Firefighters] could see the showers and the food tent, but the president’s visit kept them and dozens of other firefighters from moving. …’I appreciate him being here [said one firefighter], but they could have organized this better. I’d just as soon eat.’”--The San Diego Union Tribune, 10/26/07

     Despite the recent drop in U.S. fatalities in Iraq, 2007 has already become the deadliest year since the war began in March 2003.

·        “With nearly two months left in the year, the U.S. toll has already surpassed that of 2004, when 850 troops died -- mostly in larger, more conventional battles like the campaign to cleanse Fallujah of Sunni militants in November, and U.S. clashes with Shiite militiamen in the sect's holy city of Najaf in August.”--The New York Times, 11/6/07
