77,000 115,000 reasons

While America slumbers along this week, wallowing in the afterglow of a buying frenzy known as Christmas, tens of thousands of people are missing family members. George W. Bush is among them, riding his bicylce and clearing his beloved brush in that hot hell known as Waco Texas. Meanwhile, 43 is out consoling South Asians and being the statesman.

The Bush administration added $20 million to the paltry $15 Million in aid to the region, while they spent billions on a handful of people in the all important swing state of Flordia this winter.

The White House spinmachine said: "The president wanted to be fully briefed on our efforts. He didn't want to make a symbolic statement about 'We feel your pain.' "

Nice try in slamming Clinton "Actions speak louder than words," a top Bush aide said, describing the president's view of his appropriate role. Indeed they do, and his actions were not to go to the largest muslim country in the world and Al-Qeada hotspot Indonesia, but to clear brush and ride his bicycle.
