advice for the president's spin doctors

If you want to give the impression your guy is hands-on, you might try getting him to behave like this guy. Yeah, Honore's probably just as image conscious as anyone who gets to a position of power, but at least he's Doing Something. And you notice the personal stake he's got in there? Comes across like a man who actually gives a damn.

and you might not want to let news like this leak out... people are starving, the president wants to express his concern MAYBE it would be good if the food wasn't interrupted when he shows up???


Bush visit halts food delivery

Three tons of food ready for delivery by air to refugees in St. Bernard Parish and on Algiers Point sat on the Crescent City Connection bridge Friday afternoon as air traffic was halted because of President Bush’s visit to New Orleans, officials said.

The provisions, secured by U.S. Rep. Charlie Melancon, D-Napoleonville, and state Agriculture Commissioner Bob Odom, baked in the afternoon sun as Bush surveyed damage across southeast Louisiana five days after Katrina made landfall as a Category 4 storm, said Melancon’s chief of staff, Casey O’Shea.

“We had arrangements to airlift food by helicopter to these folks, and now the food is sitting in trucks because they won’t let helicopters fly,” O’Shea said Friday afternoon.

The food was expected to be in the hands of storm survivors after the president left the devastated region Friday night, he said.


ANOTHER UPDATE: and don't let anyone catch wind of this.

It's all about looking good, after all.
