"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Motivation



With the third most powerful hurricane in recorded history barreling towards the Texas coast, the Administration acts as though this is just another opportunity to rebuild George's image...
White House officials were already laying the groundwork for Bush to visit or get close to the disaster zone soon after Rita passes, leaving his schedule open for Saturday and Sunday. Bush came under fire for waiting several days before visiting New Orleans after Katrina devastated that city. He has since returned five times to the disaster zone. Administration officials are counting on a more aggressive, hands-on approach to Hurricane Rita to help counter criticism of their slow and confused response to Katrina. Since that storm hit on August 29, Bush has seen his overall approval ratings drop to new lows. A smoother response to Rita might help Bush politically, but is unlikely to pull him out of his post-Katrina slump, analysts said.
