Shortage of equipment hampering town's recovery 15 of Kansas's 19 helicopters are deployed in Iraq 70 more troops due to arrive in Greensburg today

KANSAS Governor Kathleen Sebelius said today a shortage of equipment caused by the war in Iraq was hampering recovery efforts in a US town obliterated by a tornado.

A shortage of trucks, helicopters and other equipment – all sent to Iraq – was a "huge handicap" to the recovery effort, the Democrat governor said.

..."We're getting pounded in Kansas. We have the need for National Guard in two different parts of our state now. This is really going to be a problem," Ms Sebelius said.

...Ms Sebelius said about half of Kansas's large equipment including dump trucks and front loaders, 20 per cent of its Humvees and 15 of its 19 helicopters were sent to Iraq.

I couldn’t believe that ugly woman trying to score partisan political points on the Iraq war while standing in the middle of such devastation. What at idiot. What a politcal puta.

Exactly how much equipment does she think she needs?

What amazes me is that now when ever you stick a microphone in front of a liberal, the opportunity will be used for a partisan political tirade. No matter who, no matter where.

She is a liar. She has enough trucks to cover that little town 2x over and the men to run them, if she wants to send them there.

Hmmm...maybe the Gov. should look at the openning page of the Kansas National Guard website:

“The Army National Guard is an elite group of warriors who dedicate a portion of their time to serving their nation. Each state has its own National Guard as required by the constitution; in fact, the National Guard is the only branch of the military whose existence is actually required by the constitution”
http://www.kansasarmynationalguard.com/

I read, don’t post often...hope this works

Different tastes I guess.

But her looks aside, she's playing politics with a disaster and that ain't right.

No looks can compensate for an evil person. She is political scum and a bad person.

This is proof positive that all women named Kathleen should never be voted into any office.

It is soooo easy to spot an honor graduate of the Kathline Blanco School of Dumba$$eS as Governors. They really stand out in a crowd, don’t they?

This town is about the size of your subdivision. Sebelius is an embarassment.

We elect lying RATS like Sebelius, who isn’t even from Kansas. That’s what’s wrong with Kansas.
