WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President George W. Bush will not attend the Republican convention and will instead address the assembly via satellite so he can oversee the federal response to Hurricane Gustav, the White House said on Sunday.
“The president and vice president decided not to travel to Minnesota due to the hurricane,” White House spokeswoman Dana Perino told reporters. “We are working on alternate plans.”
It’s a near miracle, but I agree with this action. Bush is doing at least one responsible thing during his terms in office. Maybe this time he’ll disprove his photo.
