It appears that President Bush, who once looked like the A. E. Neuman character (did W. have his ears redone recently?), felt that rollling blackout that did not occur in Texas was not a biggie.

Bush Doesn’t Let Blackout Upset Lunch With Troops
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 14—President Bush was having lunch with troops at the Miramar Marine Corps Air Station when Joe Hagin, his deputy chief of staff, told him of the massive blackout on the East Coast.
But unlike the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when news of another New York catastrophe sent Mr. Bush on an odyssey on Air Force One, today he continued his lunch and went ahead with plans to attend a $1 million political fund-raiser here this evening. Still, he spent the rest of the afternoon on the phone trying to sort out the damage and the cause of the power failure with his top national security aides.
