To help or not to help

…that is the GOP’s question:

President Bush yesterday: from wire service reports:

“President Bush told those affected by a series of deadly tornadoes in five Southern states that help from the federal government is on the way.”

“Loss of life, loss of property — prayers can help and so can the government,” Bush said. “I do want the people in those states to know the American people are standing with them.”

Ronald Reagan, twenty years ago:

“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help. “
