It Takes an Act of God to Cancel Bush's Vacation

Too bad it's not an election year. After Ivan hit Florida last year it took Bush only three days to get on down there to survey the damage.

Bush will fly to Washington, tomorrow, to help monitor federal assistance on one of the worst natural disasters to ever hit the United States:
Bush was expected to visit the region affected by Katrina, but details on that trip were in flux as the White House worked to make sure the president would not disrupt response efforts.

Last year Bush wasted no time to visit Florida for the much needed electoral votes. This year he cut his vacation short by 2 days.

I think John Aravosis said it best:
FOX News anchor Shepard Smith is flying over New Orleans in a helicopter to survey the damage and report to the nation. Have things gotten that bad in our nation that a reporter for a biased news outlet is acting more presidential than the president himself?

What a difference a year makes...
