Tin ear: Has Team Bush lost its gift for stagecraft? First, they bungled their response to Hurricane Katrina like rank amateurs, now they’re waayyy over-compensating with an overly stagey reaction to Hurricane Rita.
The President was supposed to fly to San Antonio for a photo-op with first responders. It’s too dicey down there so he’s going straight to Colorado, where he’s going to lead the recovery from Northern Command.
Why? What could he do there that he couldn’t do from the White House? Are we really supposed to believe that George W. Bush will be there in the command center, guiding the response hands-on?
He’ll just be in the way. He should stay home.
