Not too long ago, the threat of hurricane Gustav kept President Bush away from the Republican National Convention. Apparently, it was important for the President to be at his desk when the hurricane hit, just in case. Just in case what, I’m not really sure, but just in case. And, of course, it was big news.
In contrast, I haven’t heard word one about President Bush’s location in anticipation of hurricane Ike’s landfall.
So, are hurricane response optics less important because the New Orleans wasn’t at risk, or was the Gustav fuss yet another political ploy from the Republicans? Or, does President Bush not care about Texas?
