Actions Speak Louder Than Words

As a bush aid says:

"Actions speak louder than words," a top Bush aide said, describing the president's view of his appropriate role.
and bush is acting:
the president was confident he could monitor events effectively without returning to Washington or making public statements in Crawford, where he spent part of the day clearing brush and bicycling.
How about a minute or two of some meaningful action like, say, an executive order sending 10, 20, 30 thousand troops with hammers, nails, and other tools of reconstruction to the disaster areas.

Via The Talking Points Memo.

Update (12/30): The administration has begun sending military units to provide aid. Thank you!

Well, if they are not available domestically, take them from Iraq and put them to work improving the world.

But then they couldn't continue to build freedom in Iraq . . .
