In an abrupt about face of last year’s “zero tolerance” for lawbreaking, President Bush now states the nature of the world should drive legal application. Due to a worldwide terror threat, the federal government should not be held to 1970’s laws regulating such behavior.
Yet, this same man stood in the destruction of Hurricane Katrina and said he had zero tolerance for anyone taking food, water, or shoes after a natural disaster. When the nature of the Gulf Coast changed, President Bush had zero appreciation for a new interpretation of laws.
The only common thread I can find in the two situations, President Bush has zero compassion and zero tolerance for not getting his way
