Want proof that last week's nonsense on Hurricane Gustav was all political posturing?

Why is McCain not in Texas playing President this time around?

Reports indicate 2.9 million without power. Wholesale gas at $4.65 a gallon on refinery damage fears. Thousands flooded out.

Our best wishes and good thoughts to those affected by the storm...including those in Cuba. There should be no restrictions in offering help to a storm-ravaged area.

Barack Obama canceled his SNL appearance in response to the hurricane, and indicated he would not travel to the area in order to avoid interferring with relief efforts, just as he did with Gustav.

just sayin'...
