The Times-Picayune:

The table-top exercise looked at evacuation plans, shelter capabilities, communications, command-and-control and coordination between front-line emergency responders and Washington, D.C., said White House spokeswoman Jeanie Mamo. …

President Bush was traveling and did not take part.

Did not take part?

Isn’t that President Bush’s role in the event of a disaster — to be traveling and vacationing?

    Of course he should be vacationing. He’s the “decider,” not the “practitioner.” And let’s remember that not long ago we heard he was concentrating on only two issues: Iraq and the 2006 elections. Everything else, he was leaving up to, well, everyone else. What you should be concerned about is that he was “vacationing” instead of giving really important speeches on Iraq and the next Congressional election.
