How would he know what leadership means?

AP: Bush Vows Aid for Storm-Struck Gulf Coast---

Bush repeated a hotline number, 1-877-568-3317, for people to call to help reunite family members separated during the hurricane. Moments later, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., criticized Bush, saying "Leadership isn't a speech or a toll-free number."

"No American doubts that New Orleans will rise again," Kerry said. "They doubt the competence and commitment of this administration." House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, in a joint statement, said, "We are concerned by Bush administration initiatives this week waiving wage protections, environmental safeguards and protections for veterans, minorities, women and the disabled."
How does Kerry know anything about leadership? He has never been President of the United States. How dare he make fun of an effort to reunite separated family members?

And many Americans doubt whether New Orleans ought to rise again at it's present location. Obviously a city under sea level, surrounded by the gulf, a river, and a lake isn't very safe.

No matter what President Bush does, Liberals will always find a way to criticize him.
