Baker shows guts, defies Bush

That's Republican Congressman Baker

Calling the Bush administration's approach to hurricane recovery in Louisiana a potential "death blow to the state's economy," Rep. Richard Baker vowed Friday to continue fighting for his legislation to bail out homeowners and help the region rebuild after Hurricane Katrina.

It's great to see an honest man, not falling in lockstep with his party. And here's Boustany showing some independence too:

U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany, R-Lafayette, says the Bush administration is being “short-sighted” in opposing a property buyout proposal to aid Louisiana hurricane victims and needs to do more than just say no to the state congressional delegation’s ideas.

Miracles and wonders. I guess all politics is local after all.
