Bush loves his photo ops. Now he's gone way too fuckin' far.
Take a look at this item I found (and stole) from Via at Church Of The Front Porch

Bush faked levee repair for photo op yesterday

"From a press release LA Senator Mary Landrieu sent out today:
But perhaps the greatest disappointment stands at the breached 17th Street levee. Touring this critical site yesterday with the President, I saw what I believed to be a real and significant effort to get a handle on a major cause of this catastrophe. Flying over this critical spot again this morning, less than 24 hours later, it became apparent that yesterday we witnessed a hastily prepared stage set for a Presidential photo opportunity; and the desperately needed resources we saw were this morning reduced to a single, lonely piece of equipment. The good and decent people of southeast Louisiana and the Gulf Coast - black and white, rich and poor, young annd old - deserve far better from their national governmeent."

If this is true, I hope the MSM highly publicizes it. They have shown an admirable amount of backbone during this crisis.
