He (Bush) had familiar faces around: the secretary of homeland security, Michael Chertoff; the two senators from Texas, Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn; Representative Tom Delay of Texas; and Mr. Bush's successor as governor, Rick Perry.This article focuses on how Bush and Co. have tried to take advantage of the latest disasters. Seeking that 9/11-megaphone-on-top-of-ashes moment.
Seriously, it really was so easy for Bush at another time. He had the Ground Zero moment, he had the aircraft carrier moment, he had the scripted Town Hall meetings where questions like, "Mr. President, how is it you show such resolve when most Americans seem so worried?" were popping up. But now the curtain is pulled back and people are aware of just how inept he is.
If you read this article and think about how Bush is traveling from location to location overseeing the operations you have to ask yourself, "What's he doing when he gets there? What does he know? How does he help the situation? Do we feel better that he's there? What does he add to any situation he oversees? Resolve? What other President when in his home state isn't allowed to goto his own home because he's been there so much it'd look bad? What does that tell you?"
Any other President would have input into these situations. Any other President would have had a better response than Bush. Any other President would have appointed more competent individuals. That's why the slogan was, "Anyone But Bush."
Clowns, folks, we're dealing with clowns.
