    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Tuesday, March 02, 2004

    He's not campaigning ... really 

    President Bush continued the string of "policy" events that have the trappings of campaign rallies by commemorating the first anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security in Washington. With department workers in various uniforms standing behind him, Bush stressed a "promises made, promises kept" theme.

    He highlighted the formation of the department and his decisions to go to war against the Taliban in Afghanistan, who were harboring terrorism leader Osama bin Laden, and against Saddam Hussein in Iraq. "It's essential that this nation not be a nation of empty words, but a nation that is determined to do our duty," he said.

    Democrats said Bush's claims that U.S. airways and ports were more secure rang hollow. Former Sen. Max Cleland, D-Ga., who's supporting Kerry's presidential bid, said: "Bush is all hat and no cattle when it comes to homeland security."

    Cleland lost his re-election bid in 2000 amid Republican claims that he repeatedly voted against creating a Homeland Security Department.
