Christie Whitman give the dems the answer…they did not want.

It got kind of nasty in the congressional hearing room yesterday as Christie Todd Whitman testified about the air quality over ground zero. But Christie shot back.

“Whitman drew hisses and guffaws from the crowd when she said, “I think the City of New York did absolutely everything in its power to do right by the citizens of New York.””

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat whose district includes the World Trade Center site, claimed the Bush administration “has continued to make false, misleading and inaccurate statements, and refused to take remedial actions, even in the face of overwhelming evidence.”

“Whitman also had a testy exchange with rookie Rep. Keith Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat, telling him, “I have been called a liar, even in this room today. These were not whims; these were not decisions by a politician. Everything I said was based on what I was hearing from professionals. My son was in Building 7, congressman, and I almost lost him,”

Whitman, who was peppered by Democrats for three hours, decried the allegations as “misinformation, innuendo and downright falsehoods.”

The hearing is about the health issues facing many who responded to the attack in one way or another and were exposed to the fumes, the dust, and the debris, and are now wanting answers of why the government did not do a better job of protecting them.

Basically her answer was “the terrorists that attacked the United States” were to blame – not the government. Read more….

That’s not exactly what the democrats and the liberals wanted to hear. Since Whitman is a political appointment of George Bush, and a former republican governor of New Jersey, it was seen by the democrats as another way to get to Bush. You know, take every opportunity to blame Bush and the evil republicans.

Some of the many claims for health issues have been bogus. Just people seeing an opportunity to “get some cash out of the government.” It’s our system.. It was the same for some of the Katrina victims(?) Victim hood is applauded. Become a victim and the world is yours.
