A Great Time For A Vacation

So what WERE Bush and Cheney doing in those first few days of the hurricane and its aftermath, as thousands of people started dying for lack of federal assistance?

Lots of reporters (of both the professional and blogger ilk) are noting the inappropriateness of the fact that Bush, Cheney, and even Condi Rice all enjoyed inappropriate vacations for inordinate amounts of time throughout this past week from hell as people were dying.

As americablog describes it, as people were dying and begging their country to save them, this weekend,

"George Bush stayed on vacation. He didn't get back to work. When the worst natural disaster in our nation's history attacked us, George Bush STAYED ON VACATION. Why did the federal government stumble so badly on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday? Because on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday, George Bush stayed on vacation in Crawford, Texas. On Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday and Friday, vice president Dick Cheney STAYED ON VACATION in Jackson, Wyoming. On Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday, Sec. of State Condi Rice WENT ON VACATION in New York City and went to a splashy Broadway musical and bought obscenely expensive shoes. She went shopping.
