On whom should we depend, then? This is not simply a question of 
incompetence, or a few bad apples: it's a political ideology that sees 
governmental help for anything (or anybody) as an evil. In May 2001 
Allbaugh characterized FEMA as an "entitlement program," viz. 
something like Welfare or Medicaid that needed to be eliminated. Today 
we're seeing the results of that attitude.

assumed "Personal Responsibility..."
