I think the X-33 was cancelled before Bush, mainly because Lockheed couldn't seem to deliver on promises ( heck, their fuel tank couldn't even stand up to a partial pressure test before it started to delaminate/split...there was also a problem with the new linear aerospike engines...the lining of the ramps were also subject to too much erosion/delam).

But you're right, it is interesting about his timing. Funny, that.
