Bush and the RNC

So, President Bush has backed out of his appearance at the Republican convention, and he's using Hurricane Gustav as his excuse.

It's a pretty good excuse, as political cover goes, but McCain's people had to be concerned with sharing a stage with a wildly unpopular sitting president that their candidate has been trying to distance himself from--or with explaining Bush's absence from the convention to the media. Now they get to claim the high ground while tossing an albatross over the edge of the ship.

I wonder how it feels to be George W Bush right now. I've heard he's convinced that history will vindicate him, but he can't be so well insulated that he doesn't know how badly the American public views him.
