Not really. This is poor timing on his part. This should have been said a long time ago, or after the Katrina and Rita hurricane stories die down.
Right now the American sheeple are not interested in tax cuts, Natalie Holloway,the war on terror, the Afghan elections,etc. They are interested in what hurricane Rita is going to cause in the way of destruction, and Rita's effects on gas and home heating oil prices.
This is poor timing on Bushes' part. Outside of FR and other politicaly oriented groups, it will get lost in the howling winds of Hurricane Rita. - tom
