He is worse! George Bush just said in a news conference he will not be going down to the Gulf until after the storm. He doesn’t want his trip to impede any of the massive operations underway. Does John McCain follow that same track of rational thinking? Hell no:
Mr. McCain plans to go to Jackson, Miss., which is inland, with his wife, Cindy, and his newly-selected running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, his campaign said. Mr. McCain will take only a small pool of reporters, and will tour a hurricane center with Gov. Haley Barbour, the Mississippi governor.
As compared to the Obama response, which is people before politics:
Senator Barack Obama said that he had talked to the Louisiana governor and other officials. He added that he was monitoring the storm, but was planning no tour of the coast because he wanted to stay out of the way.
So John McCain is not the same as Bush. Bush at least has shown some common sense in the response to this mother of all storms. John McCain has seen a photo-op.
