This has to be near the top of the list: President Bush, please come to Florida.
Have I lost my mind? Not really.
WASHINGTON - The White House says President Bush is canceling a planned trip to Alabama and Florida on Thursday to consult with his economic advisers in Washington....Do us all a favor, Mr. President. Do your fundraising, do your politicking, but please, whatever you do, don't try to fix the economy that you had such a personal hand in dropping into the crapper. We can take a visit. We can't take your "help."
White House spokesman Tony Fratto said late Wednesday that the president will continue to work with his economic advisers on the serious challenges confronting U.S. financial markets. Fratto says the health of U.S. financial markets is critical to the nation's economy and the president remains focused on taking action to stabilize and strengthen the markets and to restore investor confidence.
