Smack!


I can dream, can't I? Bushie Boy is recreatin' in Kennebunkport but he'd rather be in Crawford. More privacy. Nobody can get anywhere near him in Texas. Walker Point has pesky folks with zoom lenses around. So, he's taken off site to ride his trike. The wedding he was supposed to attend has drawn protesters so he's not going. The MSM sez, protesters "INTRUDE" on their boy's holiday. Some people think it's RUDE to protest.
He rode his trike at the Massabesic Experimental Forest. In the meantime, Lieboy's advance team of "overzealous staffers" is preparing for the best approach to celebrate the one year anniversary of Katrina. While Chimpy spins his wheels his propaganda hurlers perfect the media spin. It's not about compassion, it's about appearances.
It's a fine line: Speechwriters must craft presidential remarks that recognize devastation and recovery, but that also show an awareness of government failures in responding. Staffers must find locations for his visit that demonstrate progress but do not minimize problems and mistakes. The White House has begun sounding the themes of Bush's Gulf visit, emphasizing that progress has been made, but that perseverance is necessary because rebuilding will take years to complete.

Update:Lieboy made it to the wedding after all. How nice.
Gosh, don't tell me the Gnus folks LIED to us?!!

The caption is wrong...that's not Bar, she's further down the row.

They "allowed" their one photo op, Jenna and Lieboy...but no Pickles, and the press should be satisfied with that so shut up.


Spin, spin....protesters, "ALIGNED" with Cindy Sheehan.
The protesters are aligned with peace activist Cindy Sheehan, who planned to address them by phone. Sheehan, the mother of a soldier who died in Iraq, gained international attention when she shadowed Bush last summer while he vacationed at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.

An Associated Press-Ipsos poll this month found that only about one-third of Americans support Bush's handling of Iraq.The president was spending four days in Kennebunkport on his first visit to the family's retreat in two years and planned to attend the wedding of Walker Stapleton.
...
The president was skipping those events and even planned to stay away from the reception after the Stapleton-Bertocchi nuptials. Aides said the president feared is presence, with his large entourage and rigid security requirements, would be disruptive.

For two days in a row, the president has taken his mountain bike to the Massabesic Experimental Forest, a stretch of woods about a half-hour from the Bush home that is owned by the U.S. Agriculture Department. Accompanied by companions recruited from a bike shop and elsewhere, the president has indulged in early morning rides of about an hour.


Hey, he has one supporter...with her "Help" sign

Haha...that's the Colony Hotel which could easily be turned into the Colony Prison for Neocons. Needless to say, the protesters got nowhere near Lieboy. Downtown Kennebunkport was the best they could do. Freedom in America. An "intrusion" on the monarchy.
