Why is it that so many staffers leave the WH so disgruntled and go on to bash the President so much!?! Here's another example:
Former Faith Based Initiative Official Criticizes Bush’s Efforts On Program.
The Washington Post (2/15, Cooperman, VandeHei) reports on its front page that David Kuo, former deputy director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, said President Bush “has failed to deliver on his promise to help religious groups serve the poor, the homeless and drug addicts because the administration lacks a genuine commitment to its ‘compassionate conservative’ agenda.” In an essay published on the ecumenical religious Web site Beliefnet.com, Kuo faulted “‘snoring indifference’ among Republicans and ‘knee-jerk opposition’ among Democrats in Congress” for Bush’s failure to secure $8 billion in promised funding for the initiative during his first term. The Los Angeles Times (2/15, Wallsten, Hamburger) adds that Kuo wrote he was “‘saddened’ by the administration's failure” to fully fund the initiative, leaving it a “whisper of what was promised.” (His complete essay is available at Beliefnet.com.)
