Re: Wash Post: Native Americans Criticize Bush's Silence on School Shooting
I agree with you, RB. The office of the Presidency is all about making statements and public gestures. President Bush had no problem announcing that he was cutting his vacation short to return to Washington and approve Congress' Terry Schiavo bill. He had no problem with having his picture taken with a bedridden soldier recovering from wounds suffered in Iraq. Remember how he went out of his way to portray himself as a President who genuinely cares about people?
It's a big mistake for him not to make any kind of gesture to the families of the school shooting victims.
