    Bush will go to Texas to review storm preparations

    http://www.cnn.com/2005/POLITICS/09/...ush/index.html

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush will fly to Texas and Colorado on Friday to visit with emergency workers and U.S. Northern Command headquarters ahead of Hurricane Rita, the White House said Thursday.

    The visit will enable Bush "to get a firsthand look at the preparations that are under way for Hurricane Rita and to show our support for the first responders as they get ready for the response to Hurricane Rita," White House spokesman Scott McClellan said.

    The moves ahead of the storm came after three weeks of criticism over the Bush administration's response to Hurricane Katrina, a Category 4 storm blamed for more than 1,000 deaths in Louisiana and Mississippi. Rita, which is expected to make landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast early Saturday, is a Category 4 storm with top winds of 150 mph.

    "This is a catastrophic hurricane that is headed toward the coast of Texas, and the president wants to go and see some of the preparations that are under way and thank all of those who are involved in preparing for this response," he said. "He is the president. And, as he indicated to you all, it is his responsibility when it comes to the federal government's role in these hurricanes."

    Like his travel plans means anything to people in the path? He really needs to just shut up as I don't believe one adult on this planet cares what he thinks or plans to do. We are just over him. He is basically a buffoon.

    Look...he can't control this. It is not his fault. Texas is HUGE. There is no way we could have all gotten out unless we started leaving last week. Part of the problem is people don't want to get fired from their jobs. School employees are the only ones who had a chance to slip out. Most of the other employers in the Baytown area made everyone work until yesterday. While you may not agree with his actions...blaming this on him is a little over the top. And...I know the next thing someone is going to say is...well I would leave no matter what. The thing is a single mom, or a family making it paycheck to paycheck can't afford to walk out of a job. They are not that easy to find down in the Houston area. People wanted to make sure that if they lost everything, at least they would have a job to come back to. It isn't just a simple answer. I am not trying to criticize you. All I am saying is that it is not a simple cut and dry problem.

    Wasn't it the Govenor who said if you have room in your car - take someone with you who doesn't have transportation out of town ---- ?? wonder if there are any extra seats on Air Force One - Wonder how many evacuees the White House can put up for a few weeks.....

    Come on George, set an example!
