Bush was quick to declare his brother's state, Florida, a disaster area
following Frances...has he declared WV or Ohio disaster areas. Bet he will declare
Ohio a disaster area...it's a swing state in the elections. But WV...I doubt
he'll give it a second thought...especially since that is Senator Robert Byrd's
state and doesn't have many electoral votes.
Not to put too fine a point on things, but the governor of the state has to
petition the federal government to have the state declared a disaster area. So
if the governor of the state doesn't do that, the president can't step in and
take over. That's part of the Constitution.
