Things are changing. Now it appears neither Bush nor Cheney will put in an appearance at the Repug Convention.
The Repugs are trying to figure out what to do. Bush, Cheney and Schwarzenegger were all supposed to speak tomorrow. Charlie Crist of Florida is also not coming and he, too, was slated to speak.
Bush isn't going to Louisiana at this time as he fears his being there might negatively impact emergency operations. He might also get hung from the nearest tree by those who are still suffering from Katrina! "I'll get to Louisiana as soon as conditions permit," he said.
That might be never. He might have another fundraiser to attend or a birthday celebration to partake of. It's interesting that both McCain and Obama made it to the Gulf Coast, in spite of "emergency operations."
The Repugs are still struggling to figure out how they can be of assistance to those affected by the storm. Obama, meanwhile, has "offered to tap his sprawling network of donors and volunteers to help any victims of Gustav."
"I think we can get tons of volunteers to travel down there if it become necessary," said Obama. "I think we can activate an e-mail list of a couple of million people who want to give back."
What should we do, wondered the Repugs.
McCain however, stepped into "it" once again. "I pledge that tomorrow night, and if necessary throughout our convention, we will act as Americans and not as Republicans because America needs us now."
In other words, Repugnicans don't normally act like Americans. But, in this case, they'll try!
