Texas Too Sunny For Photo Op

Bush was going to go to San Antonio to do a nice photo op of the Leader Leading The Charge Into The Teeth Of The Storm, but then got questioned that maybe he and his entourage would get in the way of those doing real work. See here amusing video of President Snippy having to face a blunt question.

So they didn't go to San Antonio. But the reason wasn't that they didn't want to get in the way, the reason was that San Antonio was too damn nice.

Another White House official involved in preparing Mr. Bush's way noted that with the sun shining so brightly in San Antonio, the images of Mr. Bush from here might not have made it clear to viewers that he was dealing with an approaching storm.

Can't help but note that the NYT story assumes that he didn't halt the political stops during his vacation for Katrina because Bush didn't want to get in the way. Which is bullshit-- no one expected Bush to go stand in the French Quarter in the middle of the crisis. But many suggested that he go to Washington and do his fucking job.
