Can Bush really help, or his public involvement mostly symbolic, and even a face-saving gesture?

Besides the all-too-blatant sense of offering Bush a Katrina do-over, what the camera reflects when it focuses on Bush — especially without the Presidential seal for him to stand behind — is his fundamental inability to take anyone or anything seriously enough.

Your thoughts on “the whole picture”?
