Why did Bush, VP skip Augusta?

  • Follow Letters

The citizens of the great state of Georgia have been saddened by the loss of U.S. Rep. Charlie Norwood.

Rep. Norwood was a loyal and staunch supporter of the policies of the Bush administration, but he always put the needs and priorities of his constituents at the forefront of his decisions.

It is, therefore, somewhat puzzling that neither President Bush nor Vice President Dick Cheney set aside their busy schedules to come to Augusta to pay their, and our nation's, respects to this great congressman.

Rep. Norwood, his family and his constituents deserved nothing less. Georgia will miss him.

Albert F. Kotras, Augusta

Mr. Kortas, I understand your

Mr. Kortas, I understand your feelings. Mr Norwood was, indeed, a fine representative of the people in his district. I think, though, that you expect too much of the Pes and VP to attend funerals.

Clinton? You mean the one

Clinton? You mean the one that didn't even have the common courtesy to visit NYC after the towers were attacked in '93, and went after the situation as if it was a law enforcement issue?
Nah, even I don't believe that President Bush not visiting was his fault.
