What’s a good excuse? How about thinking about talking?
Reflecting the urgency of the situation, White House officials revealed that Bush had taken Air Force One back to Washington from a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly in New York and said he was canceling a planned fundraising trip to Florida to help the Republican Party. Bush had canceled a similar trip last week.
I’m sure the Republicans are thrilled Bush has a “legitimate” excuse to stay away this week!
