From Senators propose agency to help rebuild US Gulf:
Bush said he told them that, "I don't think Washington ought to dictate to New Orleans how to rebuild."So why are all the damn reconstruction projects given out to YOUR FRIENDS?
"My message to them was, we will support the plan that you develop. The point is, is that it comes from the local folks. And I recognize there's an attitude in Washington that says, we know better than the local people. That's just not the attitude I have," Bush said.
