Governors'; Concerned....Bush; Trust Me

Governors don't think they are pertectin us very well.

Bush's 2007 budget submission would support a Guard of about 333,000 citizen soldiers - the current level - rather than the 350,000 authorized by Congress. It also proposes to pay for 188,000 Army Reserve troops rather than the 205,000 authorized by Congress.
At Monday's meetings, Bush, Rumsfeld and Gen. Peter Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, promised governors that the administration would find the money to cover the higher number of troops if that many are recruited, several governors said.

It's hard to recruit people for arrmagedon.

He(Vilsack) and other governors have repeatedly asked why the administration would tinker with the Guard when the states rely on it so heavily and the nation has put such an emphasis on homeland security.

I know, get'em there, won't fight'em here. Like we are anywhere close from stopping them overthere or here.

"They did not do a good job of working with the adjutant generals and the governors," Kempthorne said.

Didn't do a good job? Well, at least they're consistant. At least we know what to expect.

"I know many of you are concerned about the troop levels. I know our governors are worried about the troop levels in Iraq," Bush said. "Here's my response: I will determine the troop levels in Iraq, one necessary to achieve victory, based upon the recommendations of our commanders, not based upon politics in Washington, D.C."

Wait George! You don't get it! They are worried about troop levels for their individual states! Oh ya, we now have total federal power and the states rights thing doesn't apply anymore..all that is pre 9/11 mindset.
Hey, it doesn't have to make sense or be consistant for them to be "right".
