Fresh off the campaign trail for President Bush, Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney let fly with some pointed criticism Monday of the federal government's homeland security efforts, Reuters reports. During an appearance at a security conference in Boston, Romney lamented the uncoordinated communication efforts of agencies in the homeland security bureaucracy. "We're giving information to certain federal agencies about what we're hearing from other federal agencies," he said. "That doesn't make sense." Perhaps not the message the administration wants to get out at this stage of the campaign.
