Re: tragedy results when political appointees are placed in fema instead of real experts.

even bush himself said the federal response was unacceptable. but he
wont fire the head of fema [whose expertise by the way are racehorses
and not real emergencies] because he is a prend of a big time gop
contributor for the election of bush . to tie this to the
philippies, the pinas has also inherited the system of politcal
patronage politics from the american colonial govt when it comes to
filling up important key positions in the bureaucracy thats why its
inept. promoting from within using the civil service is better and
more proffesional .
