Starting November Off With a Spin, Washington Gets Going.
WASHINGTON (Washington Post) -- President Bush outlined a $7.1 billion strategy Tuesday to prepare for a possible worldwide super-flu outbreak, aiming to overhaul the vaccine industry so eventually every American could be inoculated within six months of a pandemic's beginning.
But not to be out done:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Democrats forced the Republican-controlled Senate into an unusual closed session Tuesday, questioning intelligence that President Bush used in the run-up to the war in Iraq and accusing Republicans of ignoring the issue.
The message is clear:
If you are a party line Republican, be scared of the bird flu, and trust the President to see you through this crisis (just like the War on Terror).
If you are a partly line Democrat, stay on topic. Bush is evil and his administration is corrupt. The war in Iraq is unjust and illegal, based on lies.
I for one would rather Washington address something besides ways to gain or maintain power and control.
