Bush News Conference on Bringing in the Big Guns
An instant reaction to Bush's annoucement that Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush's coming in to help raise Katrina relief funds.
Bush's speech: He's on the phone with people! He's working hard! He's working "with the majors"! (A little flash back there.) Oh, and: "Don't buy gas if you don't need it." Genius.
The highlight, however, was the awkward moment after Bush shook hands with both Clinton and dad. Clinton kind of held back, put his arm on H.W.'s arm and held him back, and looked expectantly at the cameras. . . You know it would kind of had made sense to have someone with an empathy gene talk. . .
