Bush Defends Gulf Coast Trips
, the president denounces critics who accuse him of staging 'photo ops.'

By Warren Vieth, Times Staff Writer

WASHINGTON — President Bush strapped on a tool belt Tuesday and pounded nails at a home-building project for Louisiana hurricane victims as his administration announced steps intended to improve the recovery effort.

Before starting his brief work shift, Bush denounced critics who have accused him of staging politically motivated "photo ops" in the hurricane zone instead of staying in Washington and drafting a comprehensive recovery plan.

"We've got people here who volunteered their time, from all over the country, and they didn't say … 'I'm a Democrat and I'm going to work here,' or 'I'm a Republican and I'm going to work here,' " Bush said in an NBC "Today" show interview broadcast from a Habitat for Humanity project in Covington, La.

"I think our job is to elevate this whole process out of normal politics," he said.

First Lady Laura Bush joined the president at the lots where two houses are being built for low-income Louisianans left homeless by Hurricane Katrina.

"This is really, really important," she said. "It's very American to step out and help."

Critics of Bush's travel to the Gulf Coast include Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), whose office issued a news release Tuesday accusing Bush of conducting a "photo-op presidency" while failing to plan for reconstruction of the devastated area.

After the TV interview, the president and first lady joined workers at the Habitat project. Bush donned a hard hat, work gloves and a leather tool belt that held a hammer. The first lady wore a cloth nail pouch around her waist. After hammering a few nails into a sheet of plywood, the Bushes chatted, signed autographs and posed for photos with Habitat volunteers.

If GWB doesn't go, critics target him for "not caring enough".

Nice to have targets on both sides of the coin.

Personally I think it would be that way for any president of any party.

Just good ol' fashion mud (or more toxic substance) slinging.

Nepotism, cronyism, favoritism.
Just three more words Dubya can't spell.

I think I'd rather swim in quicklime than be his intern.

Personally I think your wrong on this... and it's only because I know people who have lost everything over the flood/hurricane insurance damage issue.
Instead of pretending to build houses, Bush should be working, or legislation or at the very least, putting pressure on the insurance companies ( yeah right) to have no distinction between the fact that without the hurricane(s) there would have been no flooding. So having flood insurance would not have to be mandatory. If you lost your home because of a flood by a hurricane...you should be covered.. right.. wrong
It's absurd.. Hurricanes push water, water floods. One in the same.
But then we are talking about insurance corporations..
Never mind.

It's puzzling that the biggest Christophobes in the Democratic Party - especially Chuck Schumer - seem very happy with the pick of a rookie judge for the Supreme Court. John Roberts at least had experience under his belt - much more at age 50 than Miers had at 60. He just had to throw his personal lawyer on the bench. Tell me that isn't an act of affirmative action.

"Christophobes?" I really have heard it all now -- there's just so much bigotry against you Christians isn't there? I mean they won't let you erect monuments to the Ten Commandments and they even expect you to provide scientific justification for the teaching of intelligent design in schools. It's so hard being a Christian, no? And there was silly old me thinking that people of other religious faiths, such as Islam, might be the ones facing real prejudice and bigotry, y'know like having their places of worship burned down or being assaulted in the street for wearing religious clothing or being called terrorists or terrorist sympathisers.

Christophobes, really? Really we need a word to describe whatever perceived prejudice Christians profess to encounter? Cause to me it sounds a bit like "anti-white racism" (copyright 2001 the BNP) or "anti-male sexism" -- ie phenomena which exist nowhere other than in the head of the people using the phrases and are used primarily to detract from and even to legitimise genuine examples of bigotry and prejudice faced by other communities.
