Are you?

After all $14 million for disaster relief and $30 million for the innaguaration sounds fair to me.

UPDATE: Pres interrupts vacation, promises more money:
President Bush said Wednesday said that the aid pledged by the United States toaid victims of the earthquake-spawned tsunamis that battered southern Asia is"only the beginning" and announced the formation of an international coalition to coordinate relief efforts.Saying that he and his wife, Laura, were “saddened by the terrible loss of life” in the disaster, Bush pledged a multifaceted response from the United States that goes far beyond the initial pledge [...]The news conference was Bush’s first public statement since the tsunami struck on Sunday, and came after critics faulted the president for not interrupting his vacation at his Crawford ranch to talk in person about the disaster.He had previously issued several statements expressing his condolences and promising to help the affected nations.
I don't know why the people of South East Asia couldn't just hold on until after the vacation was over. I mean, your know Prez has got all that brush to clear.
