    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney will not attend the GOP convention in St. Paul, Minnesota, because of Hurricane Gustav, White House press secretary Dana Perino said Sunday.

    In addition, "substantial" changes to the Republican National Convention program will be announced Sunday because of the storm, two Republican officials said.

    Sen. John McCain said Sunday it wouldn't be appropriate to hold a political celebration during the storm. He said there would be significant changes, but did not elaborate.

    "We must redirect our efforts from the really celebratory event of the nomination of president and vice president of our party to acting as all Americans," said McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

    McCain said it's likely the event would change into a "call to the nation for action."


    "I pledge that tomorrow night, and if necessary, throughout our convention ... to act as Americans, not Republicans, because America needs us now no matter whether we are Republican or Democrat,'' he said.

    NOmaba is waiting to blame something that Nagin does wrong on the GOP.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Oh, please. How can you say there's nothing from obama.

    He created Gustav to draw attention from the Republican Convention. Everybody knows that.

    After all, who appeared at the Acropolis - or was it Olympus - and READ such a resounding speech, from a teleprompter, that people nearly swooned in their seats? He is a somewhat dark complected Greek God, thus able to manipulate weather. This is well known in Dimocrap circles, though not spoken of openly.

    He is the Alpha and Omega, the Savior, He Who Will Deliver Us From Evil.

    A little old hurricane, why that's nothing to him. He is above such things, so superior to the average human that he must be considered exempted from the need to either comment or appear. And, when his hurricane dissipates, he will be praised by the media for even the slightest remark he deigns to make to whichever starry eyed reporter asks.
